    ok check your owners manual. ( index/warning lights) from what you first posted I guessed the warning light shown was a bulb blown indicator, if this symbol is listed as a blown bulb indicator! this is how it works! all bulbs in the car have a potential resistance and wattage! if this circuit resistanc go's above average it tells a module that a bulb is gone! please note!! even if a bulb is still lighting it maybe still at fault! if and when you confirm this warning light, I would suggest testing trailer socket and rear lights! have you replacee any bulbs recently? ?? if so they maybe incorrect watt size/ bad connection! this would result in intermittent warning lights!!

    was id say the bulb you fitted recently is at fault! ! im guessing one of three main faults, 1-bad connection at bulb 2- bad earth, 3- wrong size bulb!! has to be one of the three!! oh what I would also try just for pig iron! disconnect negative battery lead for a few minutes. Please note!! ***(radio may look for security code and station programs will be lost)*** let me know how it go's complete last step 1st .... : )

SOURCE: 2003 Saturn LW200 won't idle

Only things that would cause that are, most likely, the Idle Air controller, the Throttle Position sensor, or possibly a vacuum leak. If it continues, you will get a check engine light eventually.

SOURCE: Left turn signals won't flash, Right side works fine. Replaced front and rear turn bulbs (rear was burned out). Bulbs come on fine on the left side, they just won't flash.

Gday mate, we had a problem with another late model vehicle similar to that, the bulb that was put into the reverse light was not exact brand product ( ohmage was slightly wrong ) and fowled up computer, correct bulb in place and disconnect battery to reset K A M ( keep alive memory) problem solved, BEWARE, some vehicles cannot have KAM reset except for dealer computer tethered reboot , just try putting the factory correct bulb(s) in and see how it goes, geoff. hope this helped.

SOURCE: Reverse lights on a 1998 Hyundai Elantra won't come on?

Look under the drivers seat, you will see some wires coming from the back of the car and some from the front that meet under drivers seat. They plug in together. If trash gets up under the seat and you dig it out you might have pulled on the plug and not getting a good connection now. I have had this happen. There are several of these plugs threw out the car that are electri. to other things. so before you go to shop look around and check them first.

Have you removed the bulbs and checked them and the sockets for corrosion? Also make sure they are locked into place properly. Another thing is to check the flasher relays under your das by the fuse box to make sure they are properly seated.

Check Engine Light

It sounds like you may have a failing Mass Air Flow sensor, seems like Ive been seeing these tied together quite often. Its a little tricky but a good repair shop should be able to test this sensor. I dont want to tell you to replace it without having it tested cause they are a bit pricey but check around, you never know. Hope this give youu another idea where to look.
