Yes as to change the display
There are several posts on the subject

The orange light could well have been the low fuel warning I can't think of any other "little" light on the dash except the red immobiliser one

I have three lights. I have a flashing red light. I havean orange light that comes on warning me theboot , doors , and bonnet are open I think it also comes on when washer fluid is low ,and I have another red ligh that once came on when I had a fault with the engine. When I have no petrol the petrol light comes on in the shape of an orange pump.

was it like a orange snowflake? that means its below 5c outside. if it was a tiny orange light it means you have a problem!!!

that dot is a warning lamp.
it can be either red (for serious problems) or orange (for less important problems).

for example, if the engine is running and there is a dor open, the dot will be lit and red. also, the dot will be red for brake or engine problems.

the dot will be lit and orange when there is a door ajar, when the remote key battery is low, for Low Washer Fluid Level and several other minor problems.

usually, there is also a message displayed, with details about the problem.
