SOURCE: Exclamation point in circle light on

Hi, Sounds like your abs braking system is at fault. The light would normally flicker when traction (tyres loosing grip with the road) is lost, Then as regained the light should go back out, however you have a sensor on each wheel either one of those may have packed in or your main ABS control unit under the bonnet may be at fault or on the way out. Also it may be your traction control switch that could be at fault. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Check engine & exclamation point lights are

I believe the (!) Warning Light is your starter ignition light. But the check Engine Light coming on after just having a new motor put in. My suggestion is to take it back to the person who just put the motor in for you. Have them check all the wirings and make sure there are no cross connections. I had my engine rebuilt 5 yrs ago. And they told me that my transmission had a morning condition. It didn't like to work first thing in the morning especially during the Winter season. Also check all of your fuses.

Why does my darango shut off while driving?


If it's an exclamation point inside a triangle, it's called a master warning symbol. This is the Master Warning Light symbol. If this light is on, there will likely be text displayed as well on the instrument panel, or another warning light. Look for text in particular. It could very well point out something as serious as low oil pressure. If the engine is not running, you can't very well check your gauges, but you may have lost all oil pressure or overheated the engine. Recommend you consult a mechanic familiar with your model.

2007 Ford Escape Hybrid Clatter Noise


So being it doesn't clatter in electric mode, a safe assumption is the noise is with the gas motor.

Usually a clattering noise is valvetrain noise, like a lifter not pumping up.

Low oil will cause this.

3 quarts low would probably definitely cause this!

You need to find out why you lost 3 quarts in only 80 miles!

Light on dashboard looks like an exclamation point


It's the TPMS - Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

One or more of your tires has low pressure. Once you fill the tires to optimum pressure range, the system light should reset itself after a few miles.

Good Luck.

I have a light on my dash with an exclamation point enclosed in what looks like parenthesis with verticle lines underneath. It's yellow. Do you know what it is?


If it looks like a deflating tire with an exclamation mark inside, its the check your tire pressure light.

If its a triangle with exclamation mark inside its the check engine light.

Light that looks like exclamation point in a circle located below tachometer flashing.


First off you need an owner's manual. You can get a free one here. http://pdfservicemanual.com/automotive/2001-ford-taurus-owners-manual The light that looks like a gear with an exclamation point inside indicates there is a problem with the transmission. May just be low of transmission fluid. To check the level dive the car until the transmission is warm, park on a level surface, place gear shift in park with engine running, and check transmission fluid level. Add only if necessary and do not overfill. If it is not low of fluid then seek professional help. The exclamation point in a circle under the fuel gauge next to the Brake light indicates you are low of brake fluid. Check the level of the brake fluid. If it is low you more than likely need to check your brake pads as they are worn out.

What does an exclamation point next to the engine light mean?


The exclamation point does not mean anything , I assume your engine light is on,then that means you have a problem with the engine /emissions .you need to it diagnosed with a code reader.

The car suddenly shuts off while I am driving. An exclamation point inside a triangle indicator llights up. Is it battery?


No, not the battery. Check your manual to see if this is a check engine light or a warning light for another system. If the car turns off suddenly while driving, you may have a dirty ISC motor which is a common problem on all Toyotas. It takes about 1.25 hours to clean this (because it is hard to get to) and clean the trottle body. The check engine light may point you to this. Also, there may be a sensor causing all of your woes. TPS or throttle position sensor can do this, but is not the only cause. You may need to first find out if there is a check engine light code first and then go from there.

Shut down


The light you're referring to isn't a check engine light, the check engine light merely says "check engine" in orange and is on the lower right hand side of your instrument panel. It is reserved for telling you that something annoying is happening with your engine, but is usually related to a bad sensor reading in your emissions control system.

That other light, (the exclamation point in the red triangle, in the center of the instrument panel,) indicates that something very bad is happening with your engine, it only comes on if continued driving could severely damage the engine. I highly recommend against driving it at all, as doing so will probably just make your problems worse.

What's your temperature gauge reading? If it's going really high, or remaining pegged at the bottom, you may have some kind of coolant system issue, and the motor is shutting down due to an overheat. (Which can then result in a blown head gasket, which I have done...)

I have experienced this twice: once due to a coolant line blowing and overheating my engine, and once due to a major oil leak. (Oil running straight out of the bottom as soon as I put it in. Yikes!) Neither of these problems is something you want to drive your car with until you have discovered the source of, and rectified; the problem. Check all of your fluids and oil, watch all of your gauges, and see if anything out of the ordinary is going on.

If you can't see any obvious reason for this, take it in to the shop, because your car is trying to protect your engine, and getting an estimate is a lot cheaper than replacing your engine.

Good luck,
