    ok that gives me some areas for you to check. First off and I know this sounds simple and maybe somewhat stupid but check the gas cap for tightness and possible leakage of vapor. the emission controls use a feed back system and if vapor is escaping that will trigger a check engine, any drivibility problems bucking, stalling engine noise? all fluids ok? oil,coolant, ect .It is quite possible with the age of the vehicle the o2 sensor has failed. check for a broken wire also

  • bob neumann Jan 01, 2009

    Another thought has occurred to me. How many miles are on the vehicle and was he timing belt replaced. I seem to recall that a worn or stretched timing belt causes a check engine light when the vehicle sputters. What occurs then is the knock sensor tries to adjust the timing for the problem,

    great!!!! Glad it's ok Best Wishes For A Happy New Year

Hi, my brake lamp stays on after turning ignition on in honda accord 1988 carb despite all brake lamps are working fine no burnt one, I appreciate your help


Majdi, if you mean the brake warning light in the dash is on after starting your car, the light is telling you there is a fault/problem with the braking system. You should not continue to drive if the brake warning light is on, as your brakes could fail. You will have to have a good shop check your brakes and diagnose problem and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Changed driver door secerity ligt blinking kills moter lights flash how do i stop this


new drivers door
you drop battery neg lug first before work(per fsm warnings)
you made short circuit and borked the vtss or skim
so not the immoblizer lamp in dash glows, it dont lie.
as that cuts fuse after 3 second run time (by design!)
use a scan tool see what errors you have,

that be first.
check all fuses 1st first;.

Car won't start


wont crank
or
wont start.? (but cranks robustly)
fuse warning? no , we check fuse, we never pray the PCM /BCM
will never warn us, because"they dont check them all"
why not post the full symptoms.????
I key on, what happens?, do the warning lamps all glow like the operators manual says? (NO?, fuse blown , fact !)
CEL glows (check engine light glow, ) if CEL is dead so is PCM. (fuse again.)
Do the head lights work , key off (fix that first) ( no? fuse or battery dead)
when you turn the key to start, does the starter motor crank fast?
if not fix that first. (wiggle shifter or try , neutral starts)
if yes crankes, then check for spark.? (google that.)_
if it dont start, i hook up my scan tool ($200 tool) that sees all Jeep codes (key fact that) and then crank for 5 seconds, amazing, it can
tell me, why the ASD dropped out. Sure can.
if the IMMO lamp sticks on, bingo, it will never run.

here is a good ASD page

Red warning light is staying on when I switch on and drive my 2001 Grand Vitara dashboard (!) - what do i do?


all the above.

i cant see lamp, why not use photos so we dont need to guess, 1000 warning lamps used.

varies by country too. what lamp logos look like.



what it is , who knows? right, lacking a photo.

the key switch tells the warning box when you remove the key.

that buzz left in is the warning, take key out now.

seem the key inserted switch is stuck but id have to see lamp.

so yes that is switch not a sensor, (but sure one could call a switch a sensor.) and sure wires can fail. and connectors.

sure its electric, is sure is not vacuum.



the warning box can worn head lights left on

or exiting car key left in ignition.

do not fool with the key switch on air bag cars or risk death or broken neck with AIR BAGS.

read the manual, see the 1000 warning there.

and the words, DEFEAT the bags using X procedures first.

do so.

Wouldn't think so,unless you had a misfire code

You have a Malfunction Indicator Lamp on

Have you not checked for codes & what are they ?

I have a 2005 kia sorento and a light came on today next to the fuel it is yellow im not sure what the light means


There are many yellow lights on vehicles. They can be different on the same make and model of any particular vehicle depending on what option packages your vehicle is equipped with. Your best bet is to look it up in your owners manual. If you do not have an owners manual, I offer this advise: On all vehicles with the warning lamps in the instrument cluster, the yellow lamp are advisory lamps. ie. telling you that there is a malfunction with a system or letting you know that certain systems have been disabled. It is usually safe to operate the vehicle with the yellow warning lamps illuminated long enough to get the vehicle to a repair facility. (Check Engine Lights, Airbag Lights, Low washer Fluid Lights, etc.)The red lamps on the other hand, mean that the vehicle is not safe to drive before the cause of the lamp coming on has been resolved. (examples are the red Brake Warning Lamp, The Engine Teperature Warning Lamp, The Oil Pressure Warning Lamp.)
Since you stated the the lamp is yellow, I would say that it would be safe to drive the car to your local repair facility and ask them about it and get a professional opinion of what to do about it.
