I suspect this is a low tire indicator, mine drove me nuts when I didn't know what it was till a buddy of mine told me. (my tires did not even look low to me). I would be willing to bet that the company that did your oil change was nice enough to put some air in your tires. Doing so, your light went off for a bit, but the slow leak is now getting low again and you will need to get it patched/plugged/repaired or filled with air again to get the indicator to go back out.

Does it look something like this ?

we don't have all the info on the 2008 vehicles yet , the manufactures take sometimes up to a year to get that info to independent shops , but your owners manual should tell you first to make sure your tire pressure is correct , this would be the a TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM , if all your tire pressures are correct , you will need to go back to the dealer , for warranty repair .

I believe this is a brake warning light. Parking brake is on? Brake fluid is low?

It's similar, but not identical to the standard brake warning light (these usually have two circling arrows, one on each side). Check your brakes. The park brake may be on, or there is a fault in the brake system.

I think it's time for a rule requiring warning indicators to have a printed label as well as an icon. Too many people have trouble figuring out the hieroglyphics, especially when they don't follow a standard. Even if you don't read the language, you can look up the word on Babelfish. You can't do that with an icon.

The light came up on instrument panel. its the one looks like an exclamation mark. is ther a problem with the hydraulic brake system?


There are two symbols with an exclamation mark. The first is a oblong circle with the exclamation mark inside with ( ) on each side of the oblong circle. That symbol is for brake system warning light. Check brake fluid level, check brake pads. The other symbol is (!) and is flat on the bottom its suppose to resemble a tire, it means there is a problem with the tire monitor system, check your tire pressure, if you have low tires you will have to drive car after servicing the tires then the light should go out. Tire pressure should be on a placard on the driver door or door frame.

Exclamation point warning light came on...what


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )

A red exclamation point inside a circle when lit indicates your parking brake is on, or your brake fluid level is low.

It is the Tire Pressure Mounted System (TPMS). It monitors the air pressure in your tires. If it is on, you have low tire pressure...or like me, it's just a faulty indicator. Mine came on, but I don't even have TPMS on my vehicle.
