The red light shaped like a car with the key is for the Immobilizer System, I have seen some come on if the engine is flooded. Try this procedure, turn the key on. Disconnect the battery. Hold your foot on the brake pedal for 1 min. With the key still on, reconnect the battery and start the vehicle. I hope this works.
