That is your electronic stability control system light, if it stays and you can't change it with the switch on your dash that indicates a fault in the system. Have a friend check and see if your brake lights work, usually this is caused by a faulty brake pedal switch. This component is covered for 5 years/60,000 miles.

Thanks a bunch. I did try the switch on the dash with no result. Next I will do as you instructed and if nothing else works I will take it to my dealer. I appreciate your advise.
