A small red alladin lamp type symbol with 3 droplets coming from the spout. what is it? what does it mean?


Look in your manual instrument cluster section. You did not specify the year, make or model to determine what it means. If you do not have the manual, google search year, make, model and manual.

You might want to check your fluid levels right now, as red light on dash is not good.

I don't know what the warning symbol means on my prius dashboard. I assume it means I need a new battery. Does anyone know?


Your owners manual should have the definition of the symbols.
The battery light usually means the alternator is not charging the engine battery, and the red symbol with the outline of a car next to it is a problem with the hybrid portion of the car.
I would strongly recommend you get it checked out by the dealer or someone experienced with hybrid cars.

Dashboard symbol


Hi there:
"arrow pointing up" on the DRB-II code reader as DTC 1018; a 1018 code should mean no serial data on the serial data circuit.

Check harnesses connectiosn or some possible bad ECM (engine control module).

Hope this helps.

A water symbol with a temperature symbol in it what does this mean?


That's the coolant temp gauge of the engine, when it's blue it means the engine is cold, if it turns red the engine is overheating, if it stays off after the blue goes out the temperature is normal.

There is a symbol that lights up on my dash in between the mileage and the gear readouts it looks like a tranie or a motor, but i do not have a manual for my car and so do not know what the symbol means


orange would mean service engine, like the old orange colored service engine soon lights that are computer or emissions related. red would mean oil or engine problem. it's probably a motor symbol so we can dismiss ABS or other red brake light.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.
