It means you have a computerized system management problem. An electronic sensor component has either failed, or a condition has occurred that has put a sensor out of normal range and the onboard computer is letting you know of it. Any time that light comes on it sets a code that can be read with a special code reader.Most auto parts stores will retrieve the code/ codes for you at no cost. Be very cautious interpreting the codes meaning, because various engine conditions will set a code as well, because the condition will affect what the sensor measures. If you spend the money for the replacement sensor(never cheap) it won't shut the light off.Once installed auto parts stores will not take it back.Also 90 percent of the time it is defective wiring running to the sensor or bad grounding that causes the codes/codes.So unless you have a ton of high priced testing equipment and a lot of electronic engine control troubleshooting experience,you best take in in for service. One more thing. The most common reason the light comes on is a loose or defective gas cap.The computer monitors that too.

go to an empty parking lot
turn the wheel all the way to the right and drive in circle slowly
listen for a ticking noise or similar.
repeat in the left direction.
if you hear a ticking or clicking noise you likely have a bad CV joint. not a horridly expensive repair tho a necessary one
one other thing that will cause it is if the rubber boot surrounding the CV
joint is torn.
pleae take a moment to rate this solution.

There's a number of possible reasons.
You don't mention if the engine turns over in the attempt, and you don't say which light is on.
A SsangYong service person can plug in a diagnostic tool to see what error codes are present.

SOURCE: ssangyong rexton engine problems
was told from the dealer that it would take around 8 to 12 weeks as there was a back log of parts coming from korea,So went to mercedes to order the part and they said that they were nothing to do with ssyangyong. so went to my local breakers yard and got a starter ring gear from a old mercedes 2.0ltr petrol auto engine and with a small amount of modifacation and three clamps and a eletric drill gun, lay the sourced ring gear on top of your old ring gear match up the large blank spaces,just make sure you sit the ring gear the right way round i.e the way it came off the car as you will see the mating hole dont totaly line up and one is out using your starter ring gear as a template drill out the hole that is out refit the replace ment ring gear to your car rebuild the box.
have done this three times to diffrent rexons now,and to date the cars have had no problems and run great . Ok not the shortes posts but it did not take 8 to 12 weeks to read or write.
part from the breakers yard £15, to drill the part 10 mins , to strip and rebuild the car including going to the yard one 10hrs total cost well thats up to who does the job for you but it not that hard a job to do.
