Red spanner warning light


Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

2006 dodge magnum I was in an accident rear ended


speed sensor is fitted to the abs system. if the abs system is fine with no faults coming up then it is down to the dash. now the dash is the most sensitive part, if you hit the dash to hard it can make this happen. also can make the connection to the dash and wiring come apart. braking the circuit. taking the dash out and cleaning the pins that connect the dash to the wiring can sort this out. failing this the speedo its self may be damaged and need replacing. you can hit the dash in an accident and you would not even know you have hit it. your brain does not register the movment.

How to reset the check engine light and the abs light and the airbag light


Probably the 3 are independent of each other:
the check engine would come if there is an issue with the system control in the engine.
The ABS is related to the breaking system, either a sensor malfunction,dirt acummulation or a broken fuse.
Same thing with the SRS/Airbag especially if the car it's been in a middle to big accident, so looks like you need to have the car scan.

The light comes on that states service engine soon and it stays on; as well the light for brakes and abs system are on.


Those lights are telling you the car needs attention. Sounds like a range of issues which, if ignored, could cause a major problem or accident. An ounce pf prevention ..............................
