Neat feature - must have been put in place to warn the driver of the possibility of getting a ticket in places where properly working tail lamps are a must.

If only we have similar "fitness" tests for the vehicles on our roads.

I said earlier its most likely that one of the bulbs have gone, but this might help

That warning lamp is the usual "tail lights out" one. Check you tail lamps.

@Samir Taheer& laluks- All the tailamps are working except for the rear left license plate light,will replace the bulb over the weekend and see whether the warning goes off or not.
Thanks for the link.

DVR - The link says it might be a problem with the harness. The warning light will most likely be to indicate a bulb has gone, but if there is a wiring problem somewhere it may stay on even though all the bubls are ok. Hope by changing the licence plate bulb the warning lights goes, but i wouldnt have thought those were monitored. If you post the problem on Toyota Nation one of the experts on their should be able to answer your question.
