    Going by this-

    Peugeot 406 dash warning lights

    ...it's the battery not being charged, bringing on the engine diagnostic warning light. Put an volt meter on the '+' terminal at the battery to see if it's getting charged. Could be a faulty alternator of poor electrical contacts.

    Does it go out? How long does it stay on for?

    Damn afraid to say I'd be looking at the alternator too. Or Maybe the harmonic balancer. That's easy to test. Just draw a line through the middle run the engine and see if the lines still straight

    Checked battery with a multimeter and it sat at 12.5, once started up it increased to 14.7. So it's showing me the alternator is ticking over at least

    You may not have one, but the best way to diagnose the issue is to plug in a diagnostic hand-held unit.
    It might be something quite different to alternator or battery problems, perhaps more serious!
    I suggest finding someone who can check it for you. I have a tester but am a bit too far away.

    Is the engine running in that photo? If not, there's nothing wrong. If there is, you have an oil pressure issue, an alternator issue and an engine ECU issue.

    Okay, photos have been taken sideways.

    from Page 123 of 2001 D9 Owners Manual =
    STOP - Central STOP warning light "Linked to the oil pressure warning light and the coolant temp gauge. It comes on each time the ignition is switched on. Stop immediately if it flashes with the engine running".

    The gauge -from Page 127 of Owners Manual -

    "Instrument Panel Display

    After switching on the ignition, three functions are shown in succession:

    Engine Oil Level "

    The photo looks normal, oil is at max. Stays on for approx 10 secs.
