That warning light is for the transmission. Have you connected a fault code reader to see what fault codes are stored?

its not automatic its manual
Expert:  CarDoc replied 17 days ago.

In a manual car, that warning could be related to anything; glowplugs, ABS sensor etc. The car has to be scanned for fault codes to move forward at this point, it's impossible to know without the help of a fault code pointing you in the right direction.
