    What you have is the "Check Engine" light on. This indicates that a senor on the engine or the emission system is malfunctioning, or you have a loose fuel cap. I would recommend that you take your car to someone who has a "scan tool", or an Autozone, and get the car's computer scanned. Once you have the codes (the reason for the light being on) I can help you further. The Check Engine light does not come on if you have low fluids, it is an electrical issue from a sensor, usually.

    What does the symbol look like? I'm not familiar with your 97 Corolla but I'm aware of a "Check Gas Cap" light and "Check Engine" light. Do you have the owner's manual? It should say in there...

What do the Dashboard Symbols Mean?


I have a mini cooper and every so often symbols come on when I first start up the car. Evidently this is the only time these symbols come on (versus staying on if there is a problem) which is a hassle, because its hard to remember what they are. But here is a list I found to help other Mini drivers like myself:

gbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg" alt="write_tip-xzo4jfw5th4gnzgbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg">
  1. Oil Pressure Warning Light. This symbol light usually is turned on when the ECU of the car detects any problem with the oil pressure. It usually indicates that the engine oil level is too low. Solution: Stop the car immediately, switch off the engine, and wait until the engine is cool down, top up the engine oil if the level is low. If the light is still on, consult any mechanic. P/S: This light is usually on when you switch on the ignition and it should be gone as soon as the engine starts.
  2. Battery Charge Warning Light. If the light is on during the car is running, it indicates that the car batteryis not charge. It could be some faulty of the charging system. Solution: Consult any mechanic.
  3. Brake System Warning Light. If the e-brake or handbrake is engaged, the light will on. If the light remains illuminated after the handbrake is released, it may indicate brake fluid level is low. If the fluid level is correct, it may be the sensor fault.
  4. ABS Warning Light. If the light is on while driving, it indicates a malfunction of the ABS system.Solution: Consult a mechanic as soon as possible.
  5. Warning light - Unidentified problem. Computer or ECU in the car sometimes hardly knows what the problem is. It usually indicates the car needs to be serviced.
  6. Engine Warning Light/OBD Indicator. You can always see this symbol in mostthe cars. If the light is on, it indicates that the car should be serviced. It could probably the engine malfunction or some other problems related to the car engine.
  7. Low Fuel. It's LOWWWWWWWWW FUEL, Please refill!
  8. High Beam Light. This symbol light is on when the driver turn on the high beam mode of the headlights. If the light is on when high beam is off, it could be the sensor's fault.
  9. Windshield Wash Symbols. Most of the new car has windshield wash, therefore this icon is common for most of the cars. The symbol notifies the driver when the windshield wipers are activated.
  10. Windshield Defrost. It is turned on once the driver presses the windshield defrost button.

  1. Fuel Filter Water Trap. This symbol is normal but ONLY for diesel engines car. If the light is on while driving the car, it indicates water is detected in the fuel filter. Solution: It is usually safe to drive the car but have to get the water in the fuel filter drained off as soon as possible.
  2. Temperature Warning Light. The symbol looks like a thermometer. It warns the driver that the engine is overheating. Solution: Find a safe place and stop the car immediately.
  3. Fog Beam Indicator. This is pretty basic and pretty simple. If the fog beam is on, the symbol illuminates.

What is the circle warning light with the! in it


Brake Trouble Light brake_trouble_indicator.gifThis symbol, and the Canadian version below, could indicate a serious Brake problem, but the light will also be on when the hand/emergency brake is engaged. So, if you are sure the hand/emergency brake is released, bring your vehicle to a stop as soon as possible and contact your dealer. To continue driving could well be dangerous.
brake_trouble_indicator_canada.gifBrake trouble light in Canada, and other areas. The look of the Canadian symbols involving brakes are supposed to resemble the physical appearance of brakes. They do, but primarily only to people who have had the opportunity to take them apart. The word 'brake' may appear at the top of the image.
Note that the symbol of a circle with "brackets" on either side, broken or otherwise, represents brake components. What is shown inside and the details of the "brackets" and color specify the nature of the problem.

2005 Highlander instrument panel shows lights on three symbols


The VSC and Traction Control require the engine to be at 100% in order to function correctly. As a fail safe these systems a disabled anytime the engine computer detects a fault. When they are disabled the lights are illuminated to let you know that they will no longer function. The true problem is with the check engine light. The engines computer has detected a problem with a sensor or system that it monitors or controls. You have three options to get the codes that will help you determine what's wrong 1. You can buy an inexpensive code reader for about $50 and pull the codes yourself. 2. You can call your local parts store to see if they can pull codes for you. 3. You can visit your local repair shop or dealer and have them perform a diagnosis. There is usually a set fee. They will pull codes, run some tests, and pinpoint the problem for you. Let me know what you figure out.

"!" Indicator light on 2008 Chev Trailblazer


If the ! symbol you saw is inside a circle enclosed in parentheses like (O), and usually red in color, that's for your brake fluid. Check it out, maybe its low on fluid. If it is, check for fluid leaks or worn brakepads. Usually the ! symbol coincides with the P symbol and also red in color. When the park brake is engaged, both these symbols appear together. If you release the park brake, both indicators should turn off under normal conditions, otherwise either of the two or both will stay on when there is insufficient fluid or there's a parking brake circuit fault. Brakes are very important, so give proper attention and solution if ever these indicators lightb up when they shoud not.
If the ! symbol is very bold and inside a half drawn flat tire, and yellow in color, thats the tire pressure monitor indicator. Check and balance all four tire pressures to the correct specification.
Okay, sir? have a safe trip. : )

How do you reset the Service light on 2006 BMW 325 xi, it stated service was due for brake fluid flush, we did that but the service indicator is still on


Hi , to reset the service light you will need to insert the key and turn the ignition lights on but do not start the engine. you will see a push button on the lower left side of the instrument panel press and hold this until you have a triangle appear which then turns to the brake warning symbol , release the push button then press and hold the bc button in the indicator arm until reset appears , release and again press and hold the bc button until you have a moving clock symbol appear , release the bc button and wait for the display to change , once this has reset turn off the ignition and the service symbol should have reset . you may want to print these instructions before resetting , regards Mark.

Malfunction symbol appearing


Does it look like an engine? It means you have a problem with the engine. Those vans don't have a low coolant sensor.
