It means there is a failure going on and it could cause other damage if keep driving. it is usually a misfire code with a dead cylinder.and all the raw fuel that gets dumped into convertor due to it not firing will cause catylitic convertor damage.

Yellow light on dash panel...looks like exclamation mark in circle. That blinks..what does this mean


Some cars have tire pressure sensors that can cause an indicator with an exclamation point to appear on the instrument panel.

Check the pressure in all of your tires.

Your car manual (probably crammed into your glove box somewhere) will have a diagram of all the instrument panel lights and a brief description of what they all mean.

That's your check engine light, there is over 300 reasons as to why it can come on, you need to get scanned for trouble codes, most auto zones scan for free, if the light is blinking rather then staying on solid u need to shut engine off cause your doing catalytic converter damage.. Usually if it's missing on any cylinder..

I have a BMW 318i and there is a yellow engine shaped light showing on the dash. What does this mean?


It's your "check engine" light. It means a fault was triggered to the computer. Have someone with BMW scanner or dealer check and repair before it strands you somewhere.

I don't have one of those vehicles but in the Path Finder it meant Low oil pressure or low oil. If your oil level is correct get the oil pump checked out before the engine is damaged.

Warning Light


That exclamation light on the dash board indicates low tire pressure. Check the air in all your tires and make sure they are all filled to proper levels and it should turn off.
