I have a toyota cellica1995 auto coupe (import) no handbook. green Warning light on dash, Ect-S power, what does this mean. Have just changed the alternator any reference to this? cheers mark


Easy one. You pressed (or someone pressed) the ECT button located near the shifter, in the console, or on the shifter itself. It changed the shift pattern of the transmission to a higher shift point for more performance (but uses more gas). Look for the switch and with the engine running push it until the light goes off.

Dash lights out. From fooling around with deck please help. On a 99 mustang gt I changed a 20 fuse that was blowing and still no dash lights please help


make sure the ground from the deck is grounded to the chassis,
not a wire that tests as a ground. Parking lights,dash lights ect.

Summer/winter switch stuck


Doesn't this car have an onboard dash light to show Winter Mode? Sounds more like it's an engine or transmission issue. Tune up? Trans service?
Is the CEL (check engine light) on?

What does ECT PWR green light on dash mean? It just popped up at 160k


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The ECT PWR light is on because someone has inadvertantly bumped the switch. Look on the console, by the shifter, or on the dash for a switch labeled ECT. Turn it off, and the light will go out.

The ECT PWR mode, when activated, increases the time that the transmission shifts up thru the gears. Without the mode selected, the first shift would be at 18-20 mph. With the mode selected, the first shift would be 20-22 mph. This mode basically allows the shift to occur later, and is normally used when you are towing something, or if you have a large load of cargo in the car.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. Have a great day.

What does the ect dash light mean


ECT stands for Electronically Controlled Transmission. When you push the button in, there should be a light on the dash that says "ECT POWER". This changes the normal shift times (based on engine vacuum, rpm, and throttle position to a later point. This means simply that the engine rpms will go higher before shifting to a higher gear when you're accelerating. It helps build speed more quickly but uses more gas to do so

What does the " Power " light on the dash indicate when it is lit on my Forester 2.0 Turbo S auto ? The manual doesn`t mention it !


Do you have a switch (usually a push button) on or near your shifter labeled "Power" or "Performance"? Some cars have a button that can turn on a different shift program for the transmission, usually holding gears longer and firming up shifts. Once you locate this button press it again and the light should turn off.

Ect power?


The ECT button stand for Electronically Controlled Transmission. In short, what the button does is change the upshift points for the auto trans. Normally, the 1-2 upshift is at 15-19 mph, pressing the button changes the shift mph form 15-19 to 19-22/23. More often than not, this feature wiooould be used if you are hauling a heay load, and the ECT gets you up to speed faster, via the longer time as mentioned above re the shift mphs. Not very useful with normal driving, it really does not do much without a heavy load.
