Alll Emergency Warnings Light up on dashboard at the same time

When driving, sometime recently this behavior began. The red triangle warning light comes on, the check engine goes on as well and TCS light shuts off.- I brought the car to a Saab dealership, (not a gm lot) and they were unable to deduce what caused the car to just shut off even after they connected to the car computer. My guess is that when they inserted the key to ignition, the symptom(s) did not engage. I am 'guessing; that it may be an oxygen sensor... Any thoughts?

    The same thing happened to me today as I pulled off the highway.  Red triangle and check engine came on without any suggestions as to what was wrong.  At about the same time these red lights came up, my power steering failed.

An oxygen sensor will not cause this. Is the car is not a sport sedan, the abs module is likely bad.

My dashboard light isn't working but my turn signal light, emergency break light and all other warning lights work, just not the backlight so I can see the speed i am travelling in the dark.

Did you try turning the wheel/knob next to the head light switch? It's the dimmer for your interior lights. Sometimes that happens and some ppl don't know about it. Not sure how familiar you are with it so thought I'd throw that out there.

What does it mean warning light TRIANGLE WITH SNOW on TOYOTA PRIUS 20 dashboard

There is absolutely nothing wrong with your car. It's actually keeping you safe! If the outside ambient temperature is +37F or lower, your car knows this and gives a warning for possible black ice conditions. Lots of people wonder the same thing, next time it shows the warning, note the outside temp to see if it's below +37F.

I hope this info helps!

Exclamation point in triangle blinking on dashboard

Hi, The exclamation point in triangle blinking is the "Emergency Blinker" This blinker turns on all all of the turn signal lamps at all four corners of the car. Left and Right, Front and Back. The triangle represents the European symbol for roadside emergencies. In fact on European Mercedes and other cars there is a triangle shaped reflector you can put behind the car so that other drivers know you have an emergency. THAT TRIANGLE ON YOUR DASHBOARD IS A BUTTON. PUSH IT ONCE. THE BLINKING SHOULD STOP. If you have a roadside emergency, and are broken down by the side of the rode. Push the Red Triangle and your lights will blink on and off ouTside to say, in effect "help".
Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 Chevrolet 1500 extended cab 2 wheel drive pickup. The ABS and Brake warning light comes on all the time . Also the cruise control quit working. The heater fan does not run either. I think...

The e-brake cable may need to be adjusted. The brake warning light could be coming on for even low fluid but the ABS light most lilley is a speed sensor. The best thing to do is connect a scan tool or code reader to see which sensor is causing the issue. Unfortunately, I think you need to diagnose one thing at a time and if its too much, take it to a local shop :)

Brake indicator warning light for a 1993 buick century

Check to see that the emergency brake isn't engaged. This happened to me a couple weeks ago after I did some work on the dash and had to barely depress the pedal. Also verify your brake fluid is ok.
Hope this helps!
