Security alarm ringing when in drive or reverse

I started my car and the "trac off" light as well as a red light that had a "P" and "exclamation mark" was on. When I put the car into Reverse or Drive, a ringing noise came on.

Additional Information: when I started driving my car (with the ringing alarm on) and tried holding the door lock/open down, the alarm stopped.

Anyone know how to reset or stop the alarm from ringing??

Have a warning light on the dash of my Toyota Estima Hybrid 2002. It's a red car with an exclamation mark in it. Flashes every now and then, then the engine switches off. Do you know what's ca


There are quite a few things that can cause this light to turn on and yes you are right it has something to do with the hybrid system, unfortunately this going to require that a suitable diagnostic scantool be connected that can communicate with all the onboard computers, this will retrieve any diagnostic codes that are stored, a technician can then start to diagnose the system based on the trouble code information.

My 2005 chevy cavalier has a service engine, abs, and trac off light on. sometimes the low trac light comes on when in the reverse position, then switches to the 3 lights when put in the drive position....


The ABS and traction off lights usually indicate a bad wheel speed sensor. I can't remember if the service light came on the three times mine went. The most common one to fail is the left front.

Try this cheap fix first.

Remove the left front wheel speed sensor, clean and reinstall it. They are magnetic and some times road debris will block the sensor. If that was the problem the ABS and traction lights will go off when you start the car.

Your second option is to have the shop scan the vehicle trouble codes, usually this costs an hours labor.

Hope this helps

Enginge shuts off when in reverse


Does it do it when putting the car in drive? It could be your lockup solenoid or possibly a bad torque converter. Please do not take my word for it, take it to a licensed ford mechanic (have it towed I should say)

Service, abs, and trac off lights are on


Usually when the ABS light comes on the circuit is broken and my experience usually leads me to a broken wire on the 03 and older in the system.
90% of the time it is the wire to the left front wheel or the plug in that plugs into the magnet on the left front wheel.
Please check that first. If you find a broken wire repair it and your system will work again.

Red light is on in my car


Normally,,,the exclamation mark in car dash board defines the "Handbrake"...if you pull the hand brake lever up it lights on...sometimes there can be problems with that switch(all time it can be in on)...
