Picture 1: Means you are increasing the strength of hurricanes due to your exhaust emissions causing global warming.

Picture 2: Means a flood is coming due to the increased strength of future hurricanes (related to first picture).

Picture 3: Means you are about to run into a increased-strength hurricane (related to first picture).

First light indicated a problem with your exhaust ( hole, oxygen sensor etc..)

Second light tells you to check your coolant level.

Working on the third one ....

1. A picture of your car accelerating hard
2. The attitude indicator showing your car is not level with the ground
3. Your car has overheated, those are steam trails coming out of the hood
4. The owner’s manual, look on page 70

You post a link then state the car overheated when it has nothing to do with overheat it's a emissions issue....

emissions and brake fluid flush are "needed" 11/2011

not a warning, just a reminder, part of the CBS system.

you have a warning triangle. what is that for? are you low on fuel? in that menu go to CHECK

The last one is actually the indication for a "Road Saftey" inspection, or locality (State) inspection as some States have in the USA.
