SOURCE: 1992 Toyota Previa - dashboard icon on - red exclamation light

I had this, red ! came on briefly around bends and after short stop at lights etc. It was low brake fluid so as it would slosh to one side it would drop below level and display warning. Check and top up asap.

SOURCE: I can`t find the fuse for the dashboard lights on my 2000 jetta.

First, make sure it's not that your dimmer switch has been turned all the way down.
Check fuse 22 and 23. If they're good then you may have a bad ground somewhere. Check the board and fuse box under the battery (yes, I know - but thats where vw located it) for corrosion.

Just rotate the small knob at the left of your dashboard to the right. This will increase the lights of the dashboard.

I have a 2003 Infiniti m45 and every time I turn the headlights on the dashboard lights gets dim what's the problem?


There is nothign wrong with your car-when you turn on the headlights the car believes you are turnung them on because it is dark outside, so it automatically dims your dashboard lights for you (since it now thinks it's nighttime). Your car already has daytime running lights, so you don't need to turn your headlights on in the daytime-they come on automatically when the car is running. You can keep your dash lights dim or bright by adjusting the small black dial on the left side of the dashboard, whether headlights are on or off if you want to.

Light is coming on on dashboard. Not sure if this is for the engine, as I can not locate my owner's manual.


The light will have an icon too, if the icon shows square shape rectangle with + and - symbol then its for battery, ((!)) is for hand brake and a small engine shape is for engine. You can find the images of these icon on Google as they are almost same on all cars. PS: Don't drive the car when these lights come up on dash and show your car to a good mechanic immediately.

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager.........Dashboard instruments quit working and don't light up. Speedo, tach, fuel gauge, temp gauge, and mileage indicators and lights for same stopped working. ABS...


You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

What does "service" light mean?


The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.
