There are little Push Buttons on the inside of your door / door frame...usually on the body part...push it in and out rapidly to clean out the rust and stuff....work it loose sorta....or your car my have bare metal contact points...clean those off with a rubber eraser on both parts...the frame and the door....should do the trick depending on which one it is

You have a door switch or trunk switch still on. Check each door switch by holding in with your finger while all doors and trunk are closed to se if ight goes off. Same for holding trunk switch closed. report back.

you have 4 door ajar switches and 1 trunk ajar switch. One of them is not cosing or is bad.

Volkswagen Beetle fuse


The fuse compartment is located at the end of the dashboard (driver's side). When you open the driver door you will see a removable panel on the end of the dash. Open the panel and on the inside of the panel you will find a fuse chart as well a nifty little tool used to pull the fuses out (and put them back in). The chart has little symbols indicating what they are for. Some are pretty easy to identify, others, not so easy. If you have the owners manual,there probably is a section explaining the different symbols. Good Luck !

In my 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado there is a dashboard warning light flashing. They symbol is of a key and it blinks but the car is not starting and is just ticking when you turn the ignition


That is to show that the alarm system immobilisor is on. Shut everything off, close all the doors,windows etc. Lock the car. Then open the car using the remote handset or key and try to start the engine, if it still does not start , then you may have to take it to the dealer to check and reprogramme the system. BTW, did you disconnect the battery prior to this fault ? this would explain why the system is immobilised. Hope that helps

Confusing dashboard symbols on 2007 DTS


The gas door flap may have a locking device that is wired to the central locking and keyless remote fob. Make sure all of the doors are unlocked and it should allow you to open the gas cap door.

Dashboard light


For Lexus the ! symbol usually is low tire pressure that's all there's sensors in each wheel that report to the car that the pressure is low, also if your wondering how much air to put in the tires you can look by opening up the driver or sometimes the passenger side door and look along the door there's a label that will tell you each tires recommended pressure. Any other questions just ask and id be glad to help you folks, and if you don't mind if you can rate my answer if you get a chance it would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks,
Steve
