If you have the message centre, it should tell you in that why its on. If not, that red light usually refers to doors/boot/bonnet or serious problems but not sure what. Does your interior lights stay on? Could be a faulty bonnet switch seen as you've been under it.

You have a message centre, Little LCD panel that displays mpg, miles etc just below the speedo?
That red light is the message centre warning light.
Does your message centre display a message/fault?
There's a long list of faults that RED indicates, from door ajar to abandon vehicle and take cover!

According to the Handbook there should be an associated message displayed on the LCD readout.

The only REDs that do not have an associated message are
Restricted performance
Security failed

Here's the picture, but it says you have a door open so perhaps it is just that at fault?

Bit of a give away!! :D I had this problem with a rear door, i found that closing the door a bit harder than usual sorted it out, but for how long who knows.

That is what i have done to take the picture i have left door open.When shut light still shows,could it be as simple as a door not shut properly as someone told me the red light means take cover this is what i am worrying over if it could be as simple as a door not locking proper i will not be as worried.

Big lol's!!! Does your car start? That would rule out security failed. Is it running at full performance? That would rule that 1 out as well. Is their a big fire coming out from underneath the fuel tank? Then it would be time to take cover ;)

Personally, i dont think just a red light on its own with no associated warning message could possibly cause an mot fail. Its got to be in the locks. I'm sure there was another thread where a wire got trapped in the boot causing a similar problem you have
