This is merely an indicator that a user can set to indicate that they are beyond a particular threshold in speed. This can be reset and the manual tells how to do this. I think it issome combination of the reset on the wiper selector and the selector in front of the odometer, at any rate, it is not an indication that anything is wrong and you should worry about it. For instance, I may choose to set a reminder at 35mph because I am always getting tickets, this is where that is done.

2005 jeep wrangler when i turn lights on beeping starts


did you RTM read the operators guide yet,
it tells you why all beeps beep and what lamps flash, (warning) and why. did you?
you turn on, the head lights, (what about 1st click , parking lights"?)
and does the dash cluster, show warnings of any kind?

if a door is ajar the system will think, you are exiting veh. with lights on and tell you, buy beeping ,etc.
but on my jeep it says on the dash DOOR, or on EVICs, (not yours)
the newer car even tells what door IS AJAR.
mine on shows , "DOOR"
the operator guide will say, check all doors for ajar, and get warning clear before driving....etc.

Makes beeping sound


Did you just recently purchase this vehicle? When you first turn the key on (don't start the engine) it does a bulb check. Look to see if the 'Air Bag' light comes on. If not, then you need to replace that bulb. It beeps to let you know the bulb isn't working.

Picture of a horse flashing on the dash board


What kind of vehicle is it? Check your owners manual, it should tell you in there what the warning lights mean. I have never seen a horse on my dashboard, but my truck is a '03.

94 golf iii makes a beeping sound after it has been driven for 1/2 hour. can't tell if a light is flashing as my dash light is out. The beeping sometimes will continue for 5-10 minutes then stop for 1...


Bring this vehicle into a shop as soon as possible. The beeping noise may be your oil pressure switch telling you there is a problem. Pretty soon the vehicle may not start. I'm not sure if this sensor is tied into ignition system.

Light flashing in bottom left of dashboard on a ford focus automatic, orange light, and the car is shuddering when going slow, any ideas?


Any time you get a light on the dash,of any vehicle ,you need to check your owners manual.
Next ,you need a code reader or better yet,a scan tool hooked to the vehicles diagnostic connector, under the dash to check for codes. I am really suprised at the hundreds,if not thousands of people that don't know that.
The vehicle symptoms will be found, after your have a code(if any) and follow some type of testing proceedure.

"maintenance required" light is stuck on in 1991 Jeep Wrangler


On the dim dashlights, there is usually a rotory switch that you can turn to increase the power to the dash lights. In earlier vehicles it was part of the headlight switch and you just turned it one way or the other to adjust the brightness. In newer vehicles it is a switch like a knob sticking out of the dash on its side that you push up or down to change the brightness of the lamps.

The Maintenance Required light is probable on because the vehicle has hit the 50,000 mile mark and it comes on automatically so that you take the vehicle in for maint. of the emission system. If this is the case there is usually a way to reset it untill another 50,000 miles go by. I would read the owners manual, or better yet pickup a Chilton manual for the vehicle and see if it says how to reset the light. You also may want to have the vehicle checked to see if any trouble codes have been signaled. Good Luck, RAC

Air bag light flashing!!!


The owners manual simply says that it should turn on and flash when the vehicle is first turned on. Then it states if it doesn't turn off or if it continues to flash you should "get it serviced immediately". Not a very detailed explanation. But, it is what you will find in the manual.
