    Okay, sorry for the bad joke. So, which symbols do you have questions about?

    One way to go about this is to copy the symbols from the electronic version (pdf) of the Owner's Manual and post them here so we can figure out what's what.

    It appears to me that the symbols are somewhat universalized and common to all cars. There's not a lot of symbols proprietary to any manufacturer. The Mirage ECO Leaves come to mind.

    There's the 120kmh icon which is not in the manual but a no brainer to figure out. There's a couple that look like lights but aren't head/fog lamps. I'll try to take a picture of my dash with the sun on it. That pretty much shows all the icons.

    But as we're having a major winter storm ATM it might be a day or two to dig out and get some sun.

    I'm pretty sure the 120kmh symbol indicates speeding, and it is required by law in certain jurisdictions.

    It's not active for me, but I don't think I've gone that fast yet haha. Maybe one day I'll find out.

    I'm glad it's inactive. I rented a couple of cars, forget the brands, but the driver could set the threshold, and one was set @100kmh. It was also not obvious how to reset it. And of course rentals don't come with manuals. And the agency had just closed for he day. And my crappy phone was at my data limit. Lol. It all went wrong.

    Light blue - left icon is foglight according to manual, right icon is not in manual

    Red - neither icon is in the dash section of the manual, they may be described elsewhere

    Green -pretty sure that means "Do not fire a .44 magnum while moving - Recoil may halt car abruptly"

    That's all I can document for now

    I think the two inside the red circle indicate weather or not the auto stop/start function is on or off. A lot of countries don't have this feature.
    The ones in blue are front and rear fog lights.
    The green one illuminates if there is an issue with the Keyless keyfob for those with push start.

    I quickly googled for an image of the rear fog light but nothing definitive turned up.

    So, for those with a rear fog light, what's the deal? You bomb around in reverse or something equally nutty?

    "First, let's discuss why the rear fog light exists. It's mandatory in Europe, and it's a bright red light -- precisely as bright as your brake lights -- that reveals the position of your vehicle. This is so your car can be seen in dense fog; normal (fairly dim) taillights couldn't be spotted in such conditions, so the rear fog light is designed to be brighter and to make your car more visible.
    So why shouldn't you drive around with the rear fog light on unless you're in heavy fog? It's simple, really: The rear fog light is placed in the vicinity of your brake light, and it's about the same brightness as your brake light -- meaning that if you're driving with the rear fog light on, it can be easily confused with your brake light. Cars behind you won't have a good idea of when you're actually stopping and when you're just letting them know your position in dense fog that doesn't exist."

    That's just what I was thinking. It will cause confusion. Just like when Coulthard lifted on Schumacher. Confusion=crash.
