This is the 'Check Engine' warning light. This normally comes on when there are sensors (usually the engine knock sensor) that are faulty or indicate some type of engine trouble.

Have this diagnosed by a qualified technician immediately.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

An orange warning light which is a picture of an engine = Engine Check Light. Most commonly known as the Malfunction Warning Light (MIL).

If this light illuminates while driving, it means your engine computer has detected a malfunction somewhere within the vehicle's electronics. The computer monitors hundreds of components & circuits. Some of these are critical in nature.

For this reason, it's important you make arrangements to have an authorised Toyota service agent (or Auto Electrician) scan your vehicle's computer for diagnostic codes. This process takes only 15mins or so. If you have an Autozone nearby, they sometimes do this for free, otherwise find a service agent who can do this check for you, at little cost.


Cheers,

Orange warning light on dash comes up - it looks like a motor


This would mean that there is an error detected by the computer module of your engine. You would may use a scanner to do a diagnostic of your engine. This would get the exact error code and help you diagnose the problem accurately. The scanner would go to the diagnostic port underneath the hood of the car.

Warning lights


hi

the handbrake light means your handbreaks on you switch might need to be replaced
the battery light means the battery is low on charge either a new battery or alternotor need to know more to answer that one
the curled up wire light could be the engine light

i would say maybe a wire has burnt out of you computer in the car has broken i would get it looked at before driving.
