What does the yellow cog light on the dash of my 1999 BMW Z3 mean?


The car is now quite old, and the yellow gear ("cog") light indicates that the hydraulic pressure in the transmission is incorrect. Check fluid level and, if the fluid is murky or off-color, have the transmission serviced and the filter replaced.

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

2003 Ford taurus gear shaped light on dash comes on after exccelration abouve 60 mph. Orange gear shaped light comes on the dash. It has an exclamation point inside th gear shape


Looks like your computer is detecting a transmission/transaxle problem. Have you had your filter changed in the tansmission yet? Are you a little low on transmission fluid? Is the transmission fluid high like it's overfilled? Is your transmission fluid brownish and smell burnt? Just a couple of things you might need to look at. You may or even should take it to a reputible transmission shop and have them run a scan on it to see what the problem is. I know this doesn't seem like much help to you at this point and time but I would have it taken care of before any damage may happen.

There is a yellow engine light on what does that mean is it just a service engine light


If the light is on and is in the classic "engine" shape, then yes, it is a service engine light. All it means is that something is wrong, somewhere on your car, not specifically with the engine (althoug it might be)

Light on dash shaped like fishing bobber with an exlamation mark inside and hash marks around it just came on. No manual to show what it represents to correct.


This is a indicator light that lets you know that one of your external bulbs are not functionng properly. Check all of your marker lights, signals and brake lights. You should find that one of the bulbs is blown.

Yellow engine symbol appeared on the dashboard of my 2005 Ford Taurus.


The engine shaped dash warning icon/symbol represents the "Check Engine Light", CEL for short.
It could be because of several things that can make the light come on. Perform a scan on the car and identify the error codes . Autozone can scan the codes for free.
