SOURCE: orange motor symbol in dash of 1997 cavalier

Your car has somewhere a computer.
Nowadays most of the electronic circuitry goes "through" that computer.
Whenever the light comes on and stays on after starting the engine, there is a problem somewhere.
Here locally there are car parts stores, with hand held "computer testers".
These stores can test your computer for free and determine some of the reasons that light stays on.
You can also buy a "computer tester" of your very own if you wish. Prices around here run from 30 to 150 dollars, and include a book either on what is wrong by the code which reads on the display of the tester, or at least will tell you how to hook it up.
Usually there is a plug hanging under the dash, where you are not supposed to see it, that the store will use to plug in the tester.
The "check engine" light can actually tell you there may be several dozen problems, or maybe even more!
Some of these problems will affect the operation of your car, some will not.
A few of the you can fix yourself, most require a shop to fix.
If your area or state has vehicle inspections, your vehicle probably will not pass an inspection with the light on.

There is a symbol that lights up on my dash in between the mileage and the gear readouts it looks like a tranie or a motor, but i do not have a manual for my car and so do not know what the symbol means


orange would mean service engine, like the old orange colored service engine soon lights that are computer or emissions related. red would mean oil or engine problem. it's probably a motor symbol so we can dismiss ABS or other red brake light.

Orange check light on what does it mean cant tell what the symbol is?


The orange check light is the Check Engine light. This comes on when you have something wrong with the systems/sensors that are controlled by the vehicle's computer. The Check Engine light comes on for a myriad of reasons, the number one culprit is a loose fuel filler cap. What I would suggest to you is to take your car to an Autozone or somewhere where you could get a scanner plugged into your car's diagnostic connector, and get the reason for the light being on identified. Once you have the trouble code, you can get back to me for additional info to rectify your situation!
