Dashboard symbol continually lit up

An orange dashboard symbol stays on after engine has been started!! The symbol is barrel shaped with a short horizontal dash on top and a vertical dash on the left. I did not receive a hand book when I got the car so I'm at a loss. Any ideas would be welcome.

SOURCE: Volvo S80 1999 Dashboard Light Problem

Is it in the center of the dash or in the right corner? The one on the right is for the ABS. The one in the center is a general message. Using the read function on the signal stalk there will be an explanation of the light.

SOURCE: what does my dashboard light mean, orange shaped like an engine

that would be your check engine light you will need to go to the dealer or a garage that has a scanner to read the code stored in the car computer . your car is now running in safe mode, which is not optimum performance.

SOURCE: orange engine symbol on dash stays lit.

Your car is most likely obd2 compliant (in the US everycar built after 1996 is) this means your check engine light could be on for a whole list of reasons, You will need an obd2 scanner to plug into the diagnostics connector to read the codes. Many times car parts places will let you use theres, hoping to sell you parts when you know what needs to be fixed. If the use of free one is not available you can probably buy one off of ebay for not too much. Use the code scanner, write down the codes and google them and/or buy a haynes manual that will explain how to do all these things.

What is the warning symbol on a Honda crv shaped like an engine on the left hand side of the dashboard?


Hello,

The engine shaped light is your Malfunction Indicator Lamp (a.k.a. Check Engine Light). If this is lit, you can take it to any Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, and they will check your codes and tell you what they mean. You can also have them clear it to see if it comes back or not.

I hope this helps.

Yellow engine symbol appeared on the dashboard of my 2005 Ford Taurus.


The engine shaped dash warning icon/symbol represents the "Check Engine Light", CEL for short.
It could be because of several things that can make the light come on. Perform a scan on the car and identify the error codes . Autozone can scan the codes for free.

Yellow exclamation point on dashboard - what does it mean?


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )
