Question about GMC Yukon XL

Wife just called and said "a square orange light just came on on the upper left side of the dash." I can't visualize the dash warning lights and trying to figure out which one it is. Battery, coolant?

Without knowing the year of your truck, I'm assuming that it is a 2000 or newer and has a message center on the left side of the of the instrument panel.

If it was an orange square, with no writing in it, then it was probably the Battery warning light, which illuminates when there is a problem with the charging system. The engine coolant light would more than likely be a message that says TEMP, and the check engine light would be shaped like an engine (both would be in the message center).

It is hard to say, it could have just been a glinch if it has not came back on again.

Sounds like traction control coming into operation. Ease up on the gas a bit.

I have a warning light on my v reg volvo s40 and wondered what it means. its like a orange lightbulb on the left hand side of the dash


It is the orange engine management warning light. It means that there is a problem, fault or parts that requires cleaning somewhere in your engine or parts that are connected to it.

Dash light


if it's on orange color sure it's "check engine " warning light

That's means a failure in your car/engine electrical system(you need to get the trouble code)

Remove the battery negatif terminal for 3 min to erase it

If it's still on I can help you to get the trouble code & detect the defected component
