Unknown Dash Symbol

A warning light has come on on my dash (1995/6 2dr) - it looks like a car with its back lights on. I've checked all the rear lights and they are all fine. What does this light mean? Thanks!

Thanks for your quick response. I did. I checked back lights, brake lights and reverse lights - all good.

I don't think in 1995/6 RAVs had a 'lamp out' indicator. That was perhaps only on high-end cars (not RAVs!) and even on my last 2006 RAV it didn't have them.

Any chance of a picture please?

a lot of the imports from japan had the lamp out, the usual culprit is the third brake light (the one in the rear window) my mate has a constant problem with his due to a short in one of the wires so we cheated and put some tape over the lit symbol as all the bulbs were fine..
