Check engine lights on

The check engine icon is lit on my dashboard. All fluids are full and the car seems to run ok. Is there a sensor or something set to go off at certain mileage? The car is a 2004 Dodge neon sxt and has just under 49k miles on it.

You don't have to get it scanned and pay...just put the key in the ignition and turn the car on-off-on-off-on (don't turn ignition on, just power), after 3 turns of the key if there are any trouble codes they should show up in your odometer. There will be "---" between code flashes and when it is done showing codes it will say "done". Google the specific codes it gives you and in a few places they have the full list of code meanings.

There is not a specific sensor to change. You have to have it scanned to retrieve a code from the computer. That will point you in the general direction of where to go. Have it scanned and post what the code is for an answer.

What is a dummy lights

Dummy lights are the lights on your car's dashboard that may show icons like "Washer Fluid" or even better the "Check Engine" light. They are called "Dummy Lights" because indicators like the "Check Engine" light don't really provide much useful information other than there's something wrong with the engine. I guess a "Smart Light" if there was one would say something like "Change the air filter". Actually car's have gotten smarter but there are still some Dummy Lights on all cars.

My 1991 Corolla's battery and brake warning lights came on simultaneously and would not turn off. The car otherwise starts and continues running with no issues. Needing expert advise.

Never assume that two lights coming on is something more than it is.
You have a problem with your charging system.
You have a problem with your brakes.

The fact the car runs without issues is reasonable to expect. You can run a car with a brake problem. You can run a car with a battery charging problem with no problems until the battery becomes flat.

First check your brake fluid reservoir. There is a float and sensor that tells when the brake fluid is too low. Just top it up.

If that is OK, the disc pads have wear sensors. Yours may be getting thin.

With the battery light, you need to check that the alternator is pumping out 13.5 volts using a test meter. If it isn't check for a slipping belt. If that seems ok, go to a tire, battery and exhaust place for full diagnosis.

I have a 1998 dodge stratus. 2.4 L 4 cyl engine. smoke began coming from the back aarea of engine just in front of dashboard; radiator full. not running hot. oil level ok. no leak. no light indicato

Could be oil dripping from the valve cover onto the exhaust pipe.
One drip can cause alot of smoke when it hits the pipe.
Could be power steering fluid too.

Windshield wiper light is lit on the dashboard; fluid is full

Sensor in washer tank is probably stuck down or wires came off. Sometimes the "float" sticks when cold. Make sure washer fluid is not frozen or tank has a lot of "gunk" in bottom that'll gum up sensor also.

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
