Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

Warning symbol on dashboard

Hi
I have a 1999 (I think) Ford Explorer. When driving the other day an orange warning symbol appeared - upper right to the speedometer. It was a picture of a car with a line through it. All was in orange. When I turned the car off and restarted it the light disappeared and has not appeared since. I bought my car without a handbook and cannot look up what it means. Please can anyone advise me.
Many thanks.

It's to do with traction control...
usually means the skid control has armed itself because the car has detected a lack of traction (if you skidded) or the car has sensed it is cold

Hi there,

An orange warning light which is a picture of an engine = Engine Check Light. Most commonly known as the Malfunction Warning Light (MIL).

If this light illuminates while driving, it means your engine computer has detected a malfunction somewhere within the vehicle's electronics. The computer monitors hundreds of components & circuits. Some of these are critical in nature.

For this reason, it's important you make arrangements to have an authorised Toyota service agent (or Auto Electrician) scan your vehicle's computer for diagnostic codes. This process takes only 15mins or so. If you have an Autozone nearby, they sometimes do this for free, otherwise find a service agent who can do this check for you, at little cost.


Cheers,

Yellow engine symbol appeared on the dashboard of my 2005 Ford Taurus.


The engine shaped dash warning icon/symbol represents the "Check Engine Light", CEL for short.
It could be because of several things that can make the light come on. Perform a scan on the car and identify the error codes . Autozone can scan the codes for free.

Warning lights


this is your check engine light
when the computer see's that a sensor or actuator is out of range it will set a code that can be retreeved by using a scan tool.
