It means that you are not using the right key of your car and if its the right key so you have to take the battery cable off and then turn the egnition on and off then put the battery cable again as a restart of the control unit .

98 cherokee turns over but won't start no power to wiring at fuel pump an on the dash ther is a orange key with a line throw it what does it mean

This indicator light is related to the vehicle security system, which checks that the key you are using is authentic. If it is flashing, you have a key with no chip in it, a bad ring antenna, or other fault in the security system.
    • 1Turn the ignition switch off.
    • 2Insert the key into the driver's side door.
    • 3Turn the key clockwise to lock it.
    • 4Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock it. The alarm system recognizes an authorized key was used and the system resets.
      As a side note if that doesnt work try it in the rear hatch. good luck hope this helped.

My 2003 Saturn Ion has a light that is a cirlce with a "+" in the middle and what looks like gear teeth on the outside of the cirlce. What does this light mean? It goes on for a few seconds every ten...

it is the "upshift" light. It turns on when you are driving the car inefficiently shift sooner and lay off the gas a bit and you'll be fine

Orange cirlce with x thru it randomly comes on

This is a "light" bulb failure indicator some where on the vehicle. The warning light comes on when the ignition switch is in "II" position and when there is a defective bulb. if you have a turn signal light out it will blink at twice the rate.
Hope this helps
