The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon or small picture of an engine) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

It means there is an emmision related fault, if it is on solid get it read asap if the light is flashing then avoid driving if possible as it may cause further damage to the catalyst.

CTS 2009 Reset, recurring of fuel gauge and engine light issue ?


I would first try to do a hard reset which means disconnecting your battery for 24 hours, that solves more problems than you would imagine.
Good luck.

I have a BMW 318i and there is a yellow engine shaped light showing on the dash. What does this mean?


It's your "check engine" light. It means a fault was triggered to the computer. Have someone with BMW scanner or dealer check and repair before it strands you somewhere.

What does a yellow enginge warning light indicate?


It indicates that the vehicle's computer has recorded a code in the memory. It will be a malfunction code of some sort. A code reader tool is connected to the diagnostic connector under the dash to retrieve the code, which gives information as to which engine management system has experienced a malfunction.

Yellow engine light


Yellow engine light on the dash board of Toyota Camry is the indication of low oil in car.----------- Get the oil checked and refilled.Driving the car with low oil is not advisable.------------- There is a reset procedure to stop this yellow light on dash.In some cases this helps ,but in some cases the oil needs to be refilled to stop this yellow light.------------- I will mention the reset procedure as follows:-- Turn on the ignition switch, set the mileometer reading to miles not trip meter, turn off the ignition fully, press the button to reset the trip meter and keep it pressed down as you turn on the ignition key to key on engine off, keep it pressed down for about 15 seconds and then the light will be reset. -------------- Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Engine oil level dosn't shown when i start the bmw 318 2003, it show nothing, but if the oil is in min it show yellow light, the red light dosnlt show when i start the engine as it was before.is it normal?


I recommend having the oil pressure checked by a technician with a pressure gauge. Lets make sure the pump is creating enough pressure. If pump checks out then its theoil pressure sending unit, gauge or the circuit

Yellow light shaped like an engine came on. What


That is the check engine light. It means that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for the codes. Most parts store will do the scan for free. The codes will show what faults the computer has identified. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have a yellow triangler light showing while the car is running


I suspect that yellow triangle lamp is your emergency flasher switch. If you were to press the switch (triangle) you would find the flashers start working and if you press it again they would stop.
