Without sounding patronising, have you checked the coolant level? My 64 plate TCE90 recently developed a coolant leak (turns out it was the thermostat housing) and I noticed this just before the coolant level fell below the low mark. If you haven't checked this recently, I would do so and top up if required as insufficient coolant will cause that warning light.

If everything checks out, check that the main battery is OK. If the system is not getting the voltage it needs, it is very capable of throwing out false error messages.

Basically the first thing to do is conduct your own checks to see if you can identify anything that may have made the light come on, such as low coolant level. Apart from that there are several/many reasons why the "stop" warning may have illuminated, so best to get the car professionally checked if you cannot find anything yourself
