This indication means there is a problem with the emission control system. The system is an array of sensors and information provided to the cars computer. Diagnosis is only possible by having the engine codes read at a car parts store (typically free), or read by a service technician at an auto shop. These often can be simple DIY repairs, but not necessarily. best of luck resolving this problem.

Something is pulling more power than usual. Remove negative terminal from battery. Hookup a test light to the negative terminal that you just removed, connect opposite end of light to negative on battery, Start pulling fuses, when the light goes out thats the curcuit thats draining battery! God-Bless ya!

What does antipollution faulty mean? its just shown up on my dashboard. is it a serious problem

Hi Michelle, I'm not too sure what vehicle you are driving but from experience with a 2006 Peugeot 307 that I owned and a couple of Citroens that were brought into my Repair Shop, when you get the antipollution faulty error it suggests that there is a problem with your cars emmision system and that either one of your oxygen sensors need replacing(either the pre-cat converter one or post-cat converter sesnsor) or the catalytic converter itself. But from experience replacing any of these is quit costly a what I found works great is removing the baffle in that catalytic converter. This entails removing that section of the exhaust system by removing the bolts or by cutting it off with a grinder. The cat box I usually usually first box box exhaust system and you will see one sensor before the box and one after on the exhaust pipe. Be careful not to remove or damage or remove these sensors. Also you want want keep the exact same box so cut it off and cut open in a manner whereby you can have it welded back together after removing the insides of this box. It becomes faulty usually dispatched to poor quality fuels a gets clogged. Every time I have done this the fault went away a I also noted an increase I vehicle power and also that the car became lighter on fuel consumption.

Strange sign shown on the dashboard

Hello. That dashboard symbol has a definite meaning. If you have the owner manual, there will be a page that has all of the dashboard sysmbol. If you do not, you could go to your local toyota dealership and ask them to get you a manual or even photocopy that page of dashboard symbols from their 1994 Camry manual. Joe
