Orange light that comes up in the middle of the dash board.

I have a orange light that keeps coming up on the dash board. It shows half the car and both lights on the icon, but all the lights work. I dont get it. Anyone help.?

Its a Toyota Rav 4 J model 1996. Two door.

Cheers.

    Its in the very centre of the display, between the temp reading and the fuel guage. I think it has the battery icon that goes red when you turn it on, but its not this but the orange icon above the red battery icon and between the two gauges as stated.

    I have the same issue, the lights are near the oil warning light. I have a toyota rav 1994

    I have the same problem but all the back lights are working. I did change a bulb at the back of the car after a warrant and maybe it is that the bulb is the wrong wattage. Thank you for the help!

This warning light indicates a problem with the rear lights (Brake lights, Reverse lights, Number plate light)... Normally it is set off by a bulb that needs to be replaced but it has been documented that using incorrect Watt rated bulbs can also trigger the warning light. It has also been noticed that faulty wiring may trigger the it too.

I HAVE A LIGHT ON MY DASH ITS A ORANGE OIL CAN


Check the fluid level and change the oil if you've used the car 3,000 mi. or more.

Usually low oil pressure lights are red and are more serious than the amber lights.

Half of my dash lights work the other half dont


Depending on which part of the dash, if it's the odometer/speedometer back light or air temperature console ( center of the dash ) back light, you need to open and remove the covers and trims around these parts to gain access to small 12v light bulbs, you can easily pull 'em out of the socket and insert the new ones in place. you can find car light bulbs in Auto Zone or any other car parts dealer shops. Good Luck

The mile omiter and clock dont show up on the dash board on my Mercedes ML320


If nothing is broken, check to see your dash light dimmer isn't turned all the way down. If you have automatic lights that turn on at dusk and you place something over the light sensor (usually on the dash board), the headlights will come on during the day and set the dash lights to the dimmer switch setting.

Airbag light comes on in dash panel


Take it to the dealer and have it checked out. It's not safe to keep driving it this way.

Ground wire problem under the dash board usually below the heater control unit - does not require removal of the dash.

Recommended tools:
- test light or "voltometer"
- FSM
- New clamps to ground the wire (possibly replacement wire)

time to fix problem:
- 2-3 hours (rough estimate)
