Take the vehicle to your local auto parts store and have them read the check engine light code for you and then you can bring that back here and someone will be able to help you figure out what is going on. Just because you can't tell what it is right now doesn't mean that something isn't going bad very soon. Let us know. Thanks for using FixYa!

Why is the engine light and VSC light on in my 2003 Highlander with 136,000 miles.


There is some of a sensor attached to the oil filter assembly, sometimes after regular oil change mechanic forgets to check this connection. So no harm to the engine, but the light stays on. Just ask them to re-connect.

96ChryslerCirrus: 'door' warning vs odometer miles, Dome light stays on.


In the Ford Ranger, the light switch can be found in the door, right by the latch. You may need to use some WD-40 to get to work properly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Engine light came on


That often has to do with emissions problems. Has it been raining lately? The check engine light on my Saturn will come on when the humidity is high after heavy rains.

I have a 2001 Buick Regal. The light for the odometer is not coming on for a couple of months now and 2 days ago the light for the a/c controls is not working. Yesterday the low coolant light started...


it is probably just a burnt light on the dash for the a/c and the odometer, as for the low coolant light if the car jhas more than 100,000 miles on it you need to get the coolant flushed that is all the light is warning you about.

The red triangle warning light just came on. What does it mean?


All it means is 5000 miles have passed since the oil change reminder was reset. You can reset it your self. Look in the Camry Hyrbid Owners Manual on Page 148 for the Resetting the engine oil maintenance data procedure. Make sure you have the A trip odometer showing when you follow along.

My expedition 2001 has the check ingine..we changed so many parto to truck already and the mile lights go of,dont know why...help


Are you referring to to odometer? if so, you will need to remove the gauge cluster and unplug the odometer harness and re-insert to make a better contact. Ford such as the expedition and f-150's are bad about the mileage or odometer going out and then sometime it will come back on. I just removed mine and had t do the same thing. Have you had the check engine code pulled to see what the problem area may be. You can usually get the code pulled at a local Auto Zone. The check engine light don't always mean that you have a serious problem. As long as the light stays on you are usually good , but if it starts blinking, then it's a more serious problem. Are you experiencing any problems from the truck that you can tell?

Engine knocking, valve ticking loud in engine, when idle or drivi


Make sure the oil level is good, and have the oil pressure check by a garage or someone who can, by using a external gauge to see what the actual oil press is. Low oil pressure will give you the ticking, start there.
