    You need to get someone to check the codes on it. It could be anything from the wrong weight or quantity of engine oil, or a computer.

    That is the hybrid system warning light , not sure what it means but it is covered in the service reminders section of the manual.



    Google " 2005 prius waarning lights " in the first result there is a link for toyotapartsandservice.com where you will find a copy of an owners / service manual. I assume you don't have one of your own.

I had the same problem. I unplugged the relays from the fuse/relay box under the bonnet. (Top left side) and replaced them. The problem disappeared. (2001 Prius 109,000 miles)

SOURCE: Toyota Prius 2001 Warning Light With Exclamation Mark on a car.

I had the same problem. I removed the relays from the fusebox under the bonnet/hood (top left side) and then replaced them. All working OK now. Sometimes I have had a problem when I start the car (especially after rainy day) the petrol engine immediately dies and I can only drive in electric. I have found that if I turn the ignition off and then restart it and immediately pump the accelerator it makes the engine run OK. Hope this helps.

What are the reasons for the engine management light staying on


There are way too many to list. The main reason it comes on is there is an emission failure of some kind. I assume when you say engine management you mean check engine light. Or the light with the picture of the engine and exclamation mark or a red triangle in the case of a hybrid.

Exclamation marks is red on dashboard, diagnosis shows code 171 and 174


P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2)
So why does another fault light come up when brake pedal pressed ,Try reading the codes again with a diagnostic tester that has the relevant codes built into the machine and not a micky mouse device

Bmw will not start exclamation point on guage


If the exclamation mark is in the middle of a rough circle, then it means the transmission is in safe mode due to malfunction. Put the car in park and engage the parking break. Turn off the engine and wait. After 30 seconds, restart the car. If the light is no longer on, the transmission is back in normal performance. Take it to a mechanic to have things checked out. If the light remains on, the car will only operate in certain gears and driving performance will be limited. The car requires immediate attention from a BMW mechanic and should not be driven any more than necessary to get to the mechanic.might be speed sensor or transmission control module.

There are quite a few things that can cause this light to turn on and yes you are right it has something to do with the hybrid system, unfortunately this going to require that a suitable diagnostic scantool be connected that can communicate with all the onboard computers, this will retrieve any diagnostic codes that are stored, a technician can then start to diagnose the system based on the trouble code information.

The "Check Engine Light" could be something major, or something as minor as a loose
gasoline filler cap. The only way to know is to find someone who can attach an OBD-II code reader
to your car's ODB-II computer port and talk to your car's on-board computer,and ask it what it thinks
is wrong.
Also, the "Yellow light with the triangle that has an exclamation mark in the middle and a circle going around" could be the SES light (Service Engine Soon), which could mean that everything is fine with the car, except the SES light needed to be reset at the 3400Km oil change, but it wasn't.
In the U.S., Pep Boys and Advance Auto Parts are national parts store chains that will read the ODB-II codes setting your "Check Engine" light free - don't know who will do this free in Canada/U.K., though.
