    I haven't met "warn on", although if I heard it I would understand it as meaning 'warn about'. You can use these forms of words:

    He warned me about the danger/possibility/likelihood... of....
    He warned me to/not to <verb>...
    He warned me of the danger/possibility/likelihood... of...
    He warned me against <noun_or_gerund>....
    He warned me off [with or without an object]
