HI. you will need to take your vehicle to a local auto zone for a free diagnostic scan on the ecm. This scan will pull up the codes that will direct you to the actua; issue and, it will also help fix this issue as well. you can also take the car to the dealership as well for the diagnostic scan.

In most cases, this will be a sensor malfunction or, faulty sensor housing.

It means the Engine Control Computer has picked up a fault of some kind. Many service providers will give you a free 'diagnostic' - they'll plug in a code reader and the code reader will tell you which fault occured. Most Checker auto parts places will read the engine codes free. If you disconnect the battery for two minutes, then reconnect, and the warning goes away, it was an intermittent fault - not to worry.

Will your Engine light come on if you need new brake pads or Rotors.


Not sure what you mean by rotors, but the engine light will not warn of brake wear. Engine light only comes on for service warning or beacuse af an engine fault. Hope this helps

Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

Battery and brake light on


For some reason the brake warning light and battery light are connected, so either system could be having problems.
The battery warning light could mean the battery is not being charged, and the brake warning light could mean you are low on brake fluid.
I would start with the check engine light and see what the codes are.

My car smog test said my car failed the MIL/check engine light due to warning lamp failure means what?


Basically, it means the check engine warning light didn't light up when it should. Perhaps a burned out bulb?

Every vehicle has a "system check" that happens every time you turn the key on. Most people don't know it is happening right before thier eyes. So if you go out and get into your car in the morning and you turn the key to "on" but then don't go the rest of the way to the "start" position there are several warning lights on. The check engine light is one of them. All the system is doing is running power through the light to show it is functional.

It doesn't mean there is something wrong, it is just showing that an error "can" be displayed if an error existed by the light being on. Try it next time. Turn the key on but dont start the engine. If your check engine light is off, then that is what they stated in the report.

What does the master warning light mean? (triangel with ! and the three lights points to the car).


This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Good luck.
