2017 Hyundai Elantra - Mystery light

2017 hyundai elantra se -an instrument panel light came on the RPM side by the number 8-yellow circle with orange/red trim and an exclamation point in the middle. For lack of a better description-daisy or sunflower. I cannot find the meaning in the manuals or on the internet. Does anyone know what this means? Thank you.

That is the light bulb failure warning indicator, one or more of the exterior light bulbs may have burned out.

The information for that warning light is on page 3-75 of the owners manual;

This warning light illuminates:
This warning light illuminates if one
of the exterior bulbs (headlamp, taillamp,
foglamp, etc.) is not operating
properly. One of the bulbs may need
to be replaced.

This light comes on intermittently but when on I have checked and all bulbs are working, any suggestions

If the bulb burnout indicator of this mystery vehicle is anything like the one in my old Volvo, the bulbs have to be precisely-matched, right down to the brand. I found out by trial and error that, when replacing bulbs, I couldn’t use a different brand than was installed in the “twin” bulb on a circuit.

Have you–or a previous owner–replaced any of the bulbs that are monitored by the bulb burnout device?

I did by the vehicle used so not sure if bulbs have ever been replaced, but have owned the car for almost a year and this has only started occurring in the last two months

That bulb monitor probably only monitors bulbs that are in pairs, like tail lights, parking lights, license plate lights, and (possibly) headlights. When you get a chance, take a close look at the base of all of those bulbs, and you will likely find that at least one of them isn’t “matched” as to brand with its twin on the circuit.
