It is a check engine light, so you will need to get a code reader to find out the problem. The light may need to be reset after repairs are made and most code readers have that function. Until you get the code checked, there is no easy answer.

Light on that says check with a picture of engine what does that mean

That's called an Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) and you need to have the code read which can be done by most auto parts stores for free and go from there.

So did you check your engine? I don't mean to be a ****, but these warning lamps have been around for about 30 years now. They mean pretty much what they say. Some of them even have little pictures for those that can't read. Whenever they come on while you are driving, it means that there is a malfunction in your engine management system that needs to get fixed.
Continuing to drive the vehicle with these warning lamps on can potentially damage some REALLY EXPENSIVE parts of your car. I highly recommend that you get your engine checked.

I have the EXACT problem joshvs described on jan 25,2010; Check engine light on, VDC disabled on, and cruise control on. There were no answers posted.

The "VDC Disabled" means that your Antilock brakes and traction control system has been disabled due to a malfunction, The Cruise Control light means that the Cruise control has been disabled due to a malfunction and the Check Engine light means that there is a malfunction in the engine management system. If all three lights came on at the same time, you most likely have a bad Vehicle or Wheel Speed sensor - this will affect all three. The only way to find out for sure if this is the cause, or to find out which speed sensor is at fault is to scan all your computer modules and retrieve the fault codes

What does code 1-p0650 mean?

  • MIL bulb may be faulty

    My cars' Malfunction indicatore lamp is on.?

    Malfunction indicator light is the same as Check engine or Service engine soon. It only tells you that your vehicle needs a checkup but does not mean there is a big problem.
