I strongly suggest you check in your vehicle handbook for the exact meaning of the light.

Mostly, with few variations, it means something has gone wrong with the electronic emission control and the engine management system has logged the fault and switched to a get-you-home preogramme.

Lots of people don't bother too much about such things as long as the engine still runs but in some places ignoring the light can get the driver fined.
Certainly the tailpipe emissions are likely to be high, perhaps the performance lower and fuel consumption higher and it will be shortening the life of the oxygen sensors and cat converter.

Most handbooks will tell you the light means "proceed to your nearest dealer".

I am having a multiple cylinder misfire on my 2006 Toyota RAV4 with the 3.5L V6. Every cylinder is reporting a mifire. Each cylinder has it's own coil. I highly doubt that all 6 coils went bad at once. Does anyone have any idea what my be causing this?? Is that the problem you two are having?

The best thing to do is hook your vehicle up to an on board diagnostics (OBD II) electronic scan tool. This electronic tool attaches underneath the drivers side steering wheel and it will obtain the trouble codes stored inside your vehicles computer. You can borrow (for free) an OBD II scan tool at your local auto parts store. Write down the trouble codes and then look in the back of a Haynes repair manual. Match the codes up to the codes found in the repair book and this will pinpoint the exact component that has failed. This will save you time and money. Based on what you have described I would check the fuel pump fuse and the fuel pump with a multimeter for continuity.

Verify the in tank pickup fuel pump is running when the engine is being cranked. It will only run about 1 second when the key is turned on unless the engine is cranked.

I have x reg toyota corolla there is an orange light on the dashboad that looks like a car with two diagonal lines what ist it or what should I do


This yellow sign is called Malfunction Engine Light (MIL), Engine Light Soon or Check Engine Light (CEL). This light is provided to let the driver know that something has happened wrong with any of the sensors and needs to visit garage to diagnose the problem.
You should get it checked from any of the workshops ASAP.
After the light comes on, the engine runs in fail safe mode, the emission system is disabled which may result in more fuel consumption, poor drive ability and unstable engine rpm.

If all the lights work on a 2006 toyota prius except the tail light, is it possible that I need to switch the fuse?


I had both tail lights out at night. All I had to do was bang each tail light and they would light up. This is what American cars do, not a Toyota. Fortunately, but check for a bad bulb. also check the fuse box if no power is getting to bulbs. I know on the 2007 there was a recall or bulletin on rear taillights, but the best thing to do is call dealer to find out. unless you fix it first! GOOD-DAY !

My Toyota Fortuner year 2006,i guess, D4D 3000cc diesel .. I was in a rushed so i drove very fast and suddenly the engine couldn't accelerate but not shutdown stayed at idle and the engine trouble light...


It sounds like it overheated. I am guessing a standard transmission or an automatic that was run in a lower gear?

Diesels cannot rev as high as gasoline engines by their very nature. They act like big compressors and the fuel is ignited by the pressure alone creating enough heat (no spark plugs, and their "glow plugs" are only used for cold starts...when the "wait to start" light is on). When they are over-revved, (two "v"s there, not a "w"), fuel ignites before a valve is fully closed and they will overheat very quickly, and it is possible to have this happen before your coolant gets hot enough to warn you that the engine has overheated.

It sounds like you may not have damaged anything, so you were fortunate to slow down in time before your engine went very much further into a state that is called "preignition" which can cause severe engine damage.

Try taking it a little easier and you should be OK.
