    Which light is it? If it is the charge light, the alternator may not be producing sufficient current.

Hi I had a problem with the ignition light staying on. Traced to a broken wire in the loom to the alternator , approx 15cm away from alternator plug. Check all 3 wires for continuity to the big plug behind the ignition coil area.

How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

My Toyota Sienna shows VSC light on the broad. What Should I do?


Hi there,

If you've had your vehicle computer codes read and determined no issue with the VSC circuit, then you just need to cancel the warning light.

I've made up the following instructions, on how to clear VSC & TRAC Warning lights:



Zero Point Calibration of Yaw Rate and Deceleration Sensors Using Paper Clips (or jumper wires).

First, locate the 16-pin ODB II connector under the steering wheel (beneath the dash). The pins are numbered sequentially backwards from right to left (from the wide side of the connector looking at it from underneath).


Take two normal-sized paper clips (or suitable jumper wires). If using paper clips, straighten one edge of one of the paper clips. For the other, bend it open to a 90-degree angle (like an elbow).


Insert one paper clip/wire into pin # 14 (Ts), and the other paper clip/wire into pin # 4 (CG) of the OBD II connector - DO NOT allow the paper clips/wires to make contact at this point.
Refer to diagram below:

wolfman304_13.gif


1. Ensure the shift lever is in "P" range.


2. Turn the ignition switch to "ON" (not start).


3. Momentarily touch the two paper clips/wires together (short) and separate again (open) - Repeat this process 5 times (within 8 seconds of turning ignition on).

Verify that the VSC indicator light is illuminated, indicating the Recorded Zero point is erased.


4. Turn the ignition switch "OFF".


5. Remove both paper clips/jumper wires from the OBD II connector.


6. Turn the ignition switch "ON" (not start) - wait until VSC warning light turns off (approx. 20 seconds), then wait 2 seconds.


7. Turn the ignition switch "OFF".


9. Re-insert paper clips/jumper wires to terminals #4 & #14 of the OBD II connector (as per above diagram).


10. Turn the ignition switch "ON" (not start) - VSC warning light should remain illuminated for 4 seconds, then start flashing at 0.13 second intervals.


12. After VSC warning light flashes for 2 seconds, turn the ignition switch "OFF".


13. Remove paper clips/jumper wires from the OBD II connector.



Drive your vehicle to confirm VSC & TRAC warning lights have been reset and no longer illuminate.

! with circle on dashboard


this means there is a problem in the brake system of the car and u should seek service from a dealer or qualified brake shop. here is a copied section of your owners manual about the light.

Brake system warning
Momentarily illuminates when the
ignition is turned to the RUN
position to ensure the circuit is
functional. Also illuminates if the
parking brake is engaged. If the
brake warning lamp does not illuminate at these times, or remains on
after releasing the parking brake, seek service immediately.
One of the following conditions may exist:
² low brake fluid level in the reservoir.
² Brake force distribution system failure. The ABS light will also
illuminate if this condition is present.

2007 Ford F-150 a orange light with a horshoe with an exclamation point in the center is blinking in the dash. What does this mean?


well maybe u don't have a manual, so here is the difinition from the owners manual.
Low tire pressure warning (if
equipped):
Illuminates when your
tire pressure is low. If the light
remains ON at start up or while
driving, the tire pressure should be
checked. Refer to Inflating Your Tires in the Tires, Wheels and
Loading
chapter. When the ignition is first turned to ON, the light will
illuminate for 3 seconds to ensure the bulb is working. If the light does
not turn ON, have the system inspected by your authorized dealer. For
more information on this system, refer to Understanding Your Tire
Pressure Monitoring System
in the Tires, Wheels and Loading
chapter.
