SOURCE: Orange Warning light on dash board check

It means you have a computerized system management problem. An electronic sensor component has either failed, or a condition has occurred that has put a sensor out of normal range and the onboard computer is letting you know of it. Any time that light comes on it sets a code that can be read with a special code reader.Most auto parts stores will retrieve the code/ codes for you at no cost. Be very cautious interpreting the codes meaning, because various engine conditions will set a code as well, because the condition will affect what the sensor measures. If you spend the money for the replacement sensor(never cheap) it won't shut the light off.Once installed auto parts stores will not take it back.Also 90 percent of the time it is defective wiring running to the sensor or bad grounding that causes the codes/codes.So unless you have a ton of high priced testing equipment and a lot of electronic engine control troubleshooting experience,you best take in in for service. One more thing. The most common reason the light comes on is a loose or defective gas cap.The computer monitors that too.

SOURCE: radio wiring colours for mitsibushi colt 1993

The best solution is to not cut the factory wire harness, and use a wire kit you can get at Walmart. The kit plugs directly into your factory harness and has leads to meet up with an aftermarket radio. As an added bonus aftermarket radios all follow the same wire color schematic so you would wire white to the white, grey to the grey- very easy. However if you are looking at a dash full of cut wires the answer is a little more complicated but can be applied to any car in this situation.

If you are even somewhat familiar with a voltmeter you can trace very wire one by one exluding the power, ground, switched power ect, A good tip for finding speaker leads is to cheat and look at the speakers in your car the wires that are connected to them should be the same as the ones behind the dash. Problem solved. Here are some other ideas and keep in mind most of these solutions are offered as a method to solve this problem in any number of vehicles, Its like the difference between giving someone a fish or teaching him to fish. I did however give a solution that only requires a trip to your local car audio shop - if you just don't want to mess with it.

You can visit your local car stereo dealer and talk him into telling you, even if they don't know they will most likely be subscribed to a phone-in, dvd, and/or fax information service dedicated to providing wire color details and locations for 99% of vehicles out there. (I have used a similar service and found it very useful-especially for brand new cars that nobody knows anything about yet.)

Or you can visit the local junkyard find your harness and match it up with the Walmart one and get a working stereo and a repaired wiring problem. The Walmart harness is probably $10 & the junkyard one would probably be the same.

Or even still if your budget is non-existant you could still go to the junkyard and write down what wire goes to what pin, then travel over to Walmart and do the same in reverse writing down the coresponding pin to wire color. All for free!

And finally the wire colors on your after market deck should be as follows
White - front left positive speaker or for short FLP
White/black - FLN (front left negitive)
Grey - FRP
Grey/black - FRN
Violet - RRP (rear right positive)
Violet/black - RRN
Green - RLP (rear left positve)
Green/black - RLN
Yellow - Constant positive or to battery positive (either way use a non-switched positive so the radio will keep its memory)
Red - Switched positive lead or to ignition positive
Black - Chassis Ground
Blue or Blue/white - Some radio's are different - but one will be to control the power antenna, and will only turn on when the fm radio is used. The other will be the amplifier turn on lead.
Orange - dimmer input lead, used to dim the face of the deck when you turn your headlights

There are some variances and some radios may have more leads or less. But these are the basics.Good luck and please feel free to ask for more information.

SOURCE: Dashboard warning lights.

The warning light that looks like a pot or kettle with arrows is the "Low tire pressure warning light*" I found the answer on the Toyota web site by registering, logging in, entering my model and searching the owners manuals for warning lights.

SOURCE: 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.

Engine diagnostics

If the light says Service Engine Soon, you can go to Auto Zone and they are glad to hook up a diagnostic code reader and let you know what is wrong with the car. I hope that it is nothing major. My fingers are crossed for you.
