Security and Immobilizer System Indicator Symbols Symbols & Tell-tales
engine_immobilizer.gifsecurity_indicator_symbol.gifThese are Security and/or Immobilizer System Indicator symbols used by manufacturers. One of these symbols lights momentarily to indicate that the ignition switch is locked and will need the proper transponder-equipped key to re-start. The vehicle is immobilized otherwise. Green symbols will flash when the vehicle is immobilized.
lock.gifIf the symbol is visible when the vehicle is on, it indicates a malfunction in the security system. If the engine does not start with the correct key, and the security indicator remains on, the system may have a malfunction. You will need to contact your dealer in either case.

I don't know what the warning symbol means on my prius dashboard. I assume it means I need a new battery. Does anyone know?

Your owners manual should have the definition of the symbols.
The battery light usually means the alternator is not charging the engine battery, and the red symbol with the outline of a car next to it is a problem with the hybrid portion of the car.
I would strongly recommend you get it checked out by the dealer or someone experienced with hybrid cars.

The symbols should be explained in your owners manual. The symbol could mean that the key you are using is not recognized by the controller as being the correct key. I think this would not allow the vehicle to start at all. Are you using a key that is a copy obtained from anywhere besides a Jeep dealer? The keys have a chip in them that must be programmed by the dealer. If you are using the correct key, I would have the SKIM module checked.

I changed out my ecu and im getting a car symbol with a key at the bottom of it and it wont stay running what does that symbol mean

You can't just throw a ECU in the car it must be programmed by the dealer or any shop with the right equipment to flash the ECU The ECU also controls the factory secuity system, that is what the symbol means, the secuity system is triggered..

Car symbol with a key appears on dashboard,what does this mean??

That is a symbol for the immobilzer system in the car. Your keys have chips inside that are programmed to a computer in car. If the computer inside car does not recieve the signal from keys the car will start and then shut right down. Its an anti theft feature. It seems that there maybe something going on with your immobilizer system. If all keys work fine, have the dealer scan the computer for any codes.

Have just purchased a 2006 Mazda 6 Atenza and noticed that there is a light on the dashboard that is continually blinking - it is a car with a key symbol in it. I refered to the manual but it is in...

This symbol is normally the car electronic immobiliser symbol and should not be lit once the car is started.

If it keeps on flashing and the electronic immobiliser is installed properly, it will prevent your car from being started.

Flashing symbols means immobiliser code is invalid or uncoded.
Hope the information is useful.

I do not have a vehicle manual so need to know: The car will not start --has been starting with hesitation for few days--and on the dash is a red flashing light with a key symbol--what does this...

If you find a red key flashing it means that the car has got antitheft system fitted. Is your car alarmed? What about the key, has it got a remote?
