    im stupid its not the battery light... it is your radiator fluid lvl light. you just need more coolant. with the car cool remove the radiator cap and fill it up. MAKE SURE THE CAR IS COOL!!! when it is hot it is pressurized and very hot. if this does not fix it there might be a bad sensor or a large air bubble.

Hi I have a warning light that is showing on my dashboard. it is a retangle box with 3 squiggly lines going up on top of the box. can you tell me what it is? it is a us wagon accord. And the words brake...

This warning lamp is an indicator to show that your exhaust temperature is getting hot, but if it is staying on even when the engine is cold then you have a faulty sensor which will need to be replaced. The brake lamp light is telling you there is a blown light bulb in one of your brake lights, so get someone to stand on the brake pedal with the ignition on and check that they are all working correctly.
Let me know if you need more information.

A warning light came on that is a box with a notch on top with an arrow pointing down and a squiggly line near the bottom of the box. Does this indicate some type of low fluid?

that i believe is the low radiator fluid. there is a little black box attached to the radiator just below the fill neck, maybe it got unplugged also.

2005 Suzuki XL7 Indicator Light

In the manual it says its the low tire pressure light, mine stays on too because the woman who had it before me took the sensor off so the light stays on constantly

What does the orange warning sign on the dashboard means?

There are several waring lights on your dash so lets see if i can guess: does it look like this ( ! ) with some squiggly lines under it? If it is that's your tire pressure warning light tell you that one or more of your tires is low on air. after you correct you tire pressure you'll find a tire pressure reset switch just inside you glove box push it for a few seconds and your warning light should get cleared.
