Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

Hyundai Amica 2002 warning light

When the car starts a yellow warning light comes on, on the dash, it's shaped vaguely like a tap and has check written under it. When the light is on the car bucks and loses power before running ok again. When the light flashes the car goes through this power loss thing, but when the light is on solidly the car runs more smoothly but still feels wrong. What would cause this? The car has 52,000 miles on the clock.

First thing to do is check all fluid levels, and top them up as needed, especially rad & oil. Have you checked owners manual for explanation ?

Light on the dash comes on and off the light is yellow and on right hand side shaped like watering can

It could be the low oil pressure warning light. That light looks like an oil can with one drip of oil on the tip.
If that is the light it is telling you the oil pressure in the engine is low.
You might want to check with a dealer to make sure if you don't have an owners manual.

Red battery shaped warning dash light on now car won't start no battery no blinkers

The battery ran out of power because the alternator is not charging it.
Have the alternator output tested and take a look at the fuses.

Hi, i have a warning light on my mini cooper, its yellow with a exclamation mark inside two brackets, what does this mean.

either low tire pressure or brake warning. See pics below. If it's the brake warning, check your fluid level. If level is low, check for leaks at brakes, master cylinder, also clutch slave if you have manual trans. Let me know if you have questions.

I think the warning light is meant to be in the shape of a radiator - check your coolant level - it generally means your coolant is low. The coolant level sensor often fails on Mazda's however, so your 'problem' might actually be a dodgy sensor not a lack of coolant at all.
Hope this helps, Sherwin

Warning light on my hyundu accent engine shaped warning light appeared on dash. what is the most likely problem.

This is the CEL (Check Engine Light) and will come on if the ECU gets information from a sensor that is outside of it's normal parameters (not getting the signal or reading that is within the range that it is expecting)

You need to get the codes extracted with a scantool and this information will point you to the part of the system at fault.

So, in short, it could be one of a whole lot of things and is impossibleto guess without the DTC. (Diagnostic Trouble Code)

Yellow Engine Light Comes on and car is very sluggish Hyundai Amica 2002 1 ltr

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

Mazda 6 warning light

On my 2003 Mazda 6S the problem was a loose gas cap which caused the check engine light to come on and stay on. To turn the light off you have to disconnect the battery for a couple of minutes.
