It sounds like your low oil level light is on. Do you have an owners manual. If so look it up in there and it will tell you what the light is.

VW camper van LT46. Flashing light on dashboard. Orange light with a circle in the middle. It came on after the battery had been changed


First check your manual, it looks like a brake symbol, but I am not sure.
The best thing ask the dealer, they should not charge for this.

We own a 1995 EL Ford Falcon XR6 in recent weeks we have had trouble starting it. Everything on the dash comes up like normal but it just wont start. We have had the electrics checked & relays etc but...


Get you to look next time you wanna start her, see if your 'imobiliser light' still flashing on the dash while engine is cranking. Common problem if light still flashing, security 'black box' faulty. IF light flashing, while cranking engine, bash the dashboard repeatedly, to left of steering column, while cranking, she may start, suggesting 'smart-lock' system needs replacing.

Hi have no idicators, central locking, fans inside ABS & Airbag light on


Is the engine starting?

Not sure I have understood the problem. Please confirm if this is correct.

1. the indicator lights on your dashboard do not come on (green lights). Are you saying the green left and right arrow lights do not turn on when you turn the indicator lever up or down. Do you see the outside orange lights flashing?
2. central locking is not working
3. the ABS and Airbag lights on dashoard are on
4. what happens to the fan. This is no clear either.

Flashing airbag spammer on dashboard renault laguna 96 1.8b


This light is telling you that you have an Airbag Problem. You might want to Locate a Mechanic and have this Checked out. This is not something that you want to try and fix yourself as the AirBags could go off and Cost a Lot more to have the Dah and Sterring Wheel Replaced. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!
