I've been looking around and  I believe that one is the Malfunction indicator Light. It's not really specific but I would have some check the fault codes on your car if it's on. This light it on the right side, bottom row second from the right.

Possible traction control turned off. try some switches to the right of the steering wheel and see if it comes on/off.

There must have been a 'Check Engine' Light? When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis. You'll need an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostics II) code reader. You should find a P07?? number stored (P07??... is a transmission code).

Purchased a 2005 Hyundai but do not have an owner's manual. A light has stayed on but I do not recognize what it is for (e.g. oil, brake, or what?) I need a manual to identify this problem and others...


maybe the tpms light tire pressure monitor system in my tiburon that was the only light i did not recognize and i looked it up and come to find out that was it the TPMS light put the same amount of air in your tires and see if it goes off. but if you could write back and explain what the light looks like cant really answer it if i dont know what it looks like. but that was my expierence

T reg renault megane.ABS light and serv light on dashboard are staying on,are the 2 linked or is it 2 seperate problems.can i still drive the car with both dashboard lights on.


All the computers on the car are linked together. The ABS can trigger the service light on some applications, ie speed sensors. You can still drive, but you wont have ABS, meaning if you brake hard enough or in gravel the tires can lock up and skid.

Why does my battery keep going dead I have relaced it 3 times a new alternator if the car sits for 2 days or more and is not started and ran the battery is completely dead


BATTERY DRAINS ARE TRICKY. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES, CLOSE GLOVE BOX. MAKE SURE GLOVE BOX LIGHT IS OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. DISABLE THE UNDER HOOD LIGHT. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL COURTESY LIGHTS ARE OUT. DISCONNECT NEG. BATTERY CABLE. USE 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, CONNECT ONE END TO A METAL PIECE ON THE MOTOR FOR GROUND. FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE BATTERY POST. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, THAT MEANS THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. LIGHT NOT ON, NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, FIND THE POWER BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULL OUT ONE FUSE, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT HE FUSE BACK, PULL OUT THE NEXT FUSE. IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK . REPEAT THIS UNTIL THE LIGHT GOES OUT, OR GETS VERY DIM. OUT IS BETTER. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT THAT IS DRAINING THE BATTERY. REFER TO OWNERS MANUAL TO IDENTIFY THE CIRCUIT. IF THE LIGHT NEVER GOES OUT, REMOVE THE WIRES FROM THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT GOES OUT, ALTERNATOR NEEDS REPLACING.

Light coming on and dont know what it means


hi jeff
this sounds like it is the service light is on, what happens is, manufacturers give you a certain amount of miles before the next service, and what this is telling you is that it is due for the next one, or it is overdue its regular service interval, hence the wrench sign/oil light, its not your low on oil it need changing...hope this helps please vote thanks

Service light


What exactly does the light look like? If it is a picture of the engine (check engine light) you may have a problem with the car. If it is a light that specificaly says "Service Engine Soon" or "Maintance Required", you may not need to do anything. Some cars, not many, have a service reminder light that comes on when ever a service is due like an oil change. When a mechanic does an oil change, they may reset this counter and after 3000 miles or so, the light comes on despite what ever conditions the oil is in, whether it needs to be changed or not, the light will come on and stay on. Now i dont want to tell you to ignore your light and later find out it was trying to tell you something was wrong. Look in your owners manual and find the description of the light. If you cannot find the description or do not have your owners manual, let us know and we will try and help you again. Hope this helps

Green lights stays on, on dashboard


If you look in the owners manual it will identify the symbol on the light.
But by what you are describing it sound like a low coolant level light. You might want to check the antifreeze level.
