There are any number of causes. Things like low gas, over heat, spoiler malfunction, the list goes on. Start looking in your owners manual.

What are the reasons for the engine management light staying on


There are way too many to list. The main reason it comes on is there is an emission failure of some kind. I assume when you say engine management you mean check engine light. Or the light with the picture of the engine and exclamation mark or a red triangle in the case of a hybrid.

Red warning light with an exclamation mark keeps coming on?


A red light always means STOP or DO NOT DRIVE.
There are two possible reasons - the car is unsafe to drive, or further driving will cause damage to the car.

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.

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,
