This is check engine light and comes on when there is a failure of a sensor or some ignition control device. codes will determin which part is of concern.

SOURCE: i have 3 orange lights on dash tc abs and a hill

HI,

I have a X Reg 2.5KV6 Freelander also, same problem.
The solution for me and many other was to replace one of the speed sensors. They reside in the hub of each wheel and monitor each wheels speed, if one is rotating faster it applies the brake to that wheel (Traction control) Also controls ABS and HDC.

If one sensor fails the vehicle turns off the TC, HDS & ABS.

unfortunately to find out which sensor has failed the vehicle needs to be plugged into a diagnostic PC at a garage. I paid £40 in Stoke-on-Trent to have this done, I then knew which was the faulty sensor and replaced it.

I have a friend who also took out his faulty sensor and cleaned it (WD40 & a wire brush) and put it back in, never had the problem again, although you need to be carful doing this as they are held in place by a copper bush and need to be intact to allow re-fitment.

As a comferting note for you, I drove my V6 for 7 months with the very same fault, just remember you have no ABS or traction control though.

Another trick BUT I DO NOT ADVISE THIS ON PUBLIC ROADS is as follows. get up to 15mph in D on auto box, turn off engine turn back on again whilst still moving, it should cut engine off and kick back in again (just like bump starting a manual car) for me this reset the fault and was good for three months before it went again. But be aware, this is only somthing i tried and it worked for me. it is dangerous to do this on a public road.

SOURCE: 2003 audi A4 2.0, low idle, flashing yellow light on dash

it's a coil- these are commonly going out on audi's...it happend to me. it's like you are running on 2 cylinders instead of 4- you need to get it replaced- it's about 75 bucks.

SOURCE: losing power when I accelerate my renault scenic, elecronic fault

I took my car to a Renault dealer and they solved the same problem by replacing the non-standard 4 prong spark plugs that the previous owner had in the car with the standard 2 prong spark plugs Renault recommends. My water pump also needed to be replaced (different issue, and was identified with a mechanical noise). I also proactively changed the fuel and oil filters along with new oil.

You might also want to look at getting the coils tested, as these tend to fail often causing loss of power, and a mechanical noise.

In most situations, it is better to take your car to the approved Renault dealer to check the fault. My experience with using other mechanics to fix faults on the car was less than desirable, and ends up costing more.

1995 E320 asr light come on and car stop accelaration


Mostly this problem appends on winter time. I f you take your car to the dealership you could throw your money away like many people did and the problem still not solve. I fixed mine definitely by myself and you could do it too. 1- Open the hood, Jack the vehicle. On both front tires you will see a cable that looks like a Rca jack that connect to the brakes but it's bigger than RCA jack. 2- Follow that RCA cable to the hood and on the other end you will see 2 small white wires that bring power to ASR and ABS system cut those 2 wires and you automatically disable the ASR and you solve the problem. As you know the ASR system is good for snow, it's like a 4 by 4 and you will need it later to drive safely in bad weather when there is snow. What to do next. After cutting the 2 small wires, I put 2 swiches in case I need the ASR in bad weather.One swich for ASR and the other one for ABS. when you cut one wire you connect both ends to the swich and you do the same for the second wire that you cut. The only one thing you will see is the ASR and ABS light will turn on on the dash. When driving in bad weather, open the hood and turn on the swich to enjoy the feature of the ASR.. ASR=4 by 4

Diff lock and abs lights


Check to see if the plugs on the wheels are plugged in check that the pins are all the way into socket, that your ABS problem, next check to see if you knocked loose the wire on the differential most likely cause and be sure to top off power steering fluid. Check that the fluid level is ok on the Diff. if you need more help let me know and thanks for using Fix-ya and rate if this was helpful.
