What does message check engine with a triangle exclamation mark mean and number 1? Thanks


You don't say what year, brand and model car you have.

The Check Engine (CE) warning and the triangle warning are different.

1. If the CE light is on there are dozens of possible causes but you need to have the car scanned to see what faults have been generated and what irregularities show up in the operation of the engine. Don't delay having it professionally checked out or the computer may send the vehicle into limp mode to protect the engine or the engine may stop altogether and you will not be able to restart it..

2. The triangle with the exclamation mark is normally the traction control (TC) system warning. If this displays constantly the TC may have been turned off manually or (more likely) there is a problem detected with the TC system and it has been shut down by the computer. You will need a scan to see what faults the computer has detected so a proper diagnosis of the problem can be made.

An orange warning light shaped like an engine has come on what does it mean


Engine warning light

eng_man_light_72.jpg Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter

Unknown meaning of warning light on dash board lower right looks like a triangle with a three pronged image in it stays on after ignition.


You don't have the owner's handbook do you? I believe that's the icon for an engine management fault. Its function is explained in the manual.

Warning light on: Yellow circle with triangle inside and squiggly mark inside triangle. What does this mean


It's the ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system warning light!
For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

tdisline_169.jpg


ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

Triangle with car and skid marks behind car and a triangle with wrench both dash board warning lights


{: ) These triangles you saw is for the Stabilitrak (traction control) indicators. Normally these lights should be off after the engine has started, unless you disable it by pressing the stabilitrak button. Sometimes it lights up automatically when driving under certain road conditions, and will turn off later when normal conditions resume. A wrench beside the triangle indicates a fault is detected on thge traction system and it requires servicing.
What you can try, stop the vehicle, turn ignition off for a few seconds to reset the system, and then restart the vehicle. If the lights wont go off, then tghe vehicle really needed to be checked right away.

What does it mean when you turn on the car and the master warning comes up with the triangle with the exclaimation point on the third picture of the car?


Sorry, other expert winner the chat about your problem. This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Hope this help.

Warning lights what do they mean, a triangle with a line in the middle


This is the Traction Control Warning light. Traction control is device added to the engine/gearbox sytem, and is designed to help minimise wheel spins when moving away, particularly on a slippery surface. When the system detects the wheels starting to slip and Traction control starts to cut in this warning light shows.

Traction control cannot do much to help in severe ice or snow though, so you can expect to see this light showing or flashing if the conditions are extreme.

If this light shows when the conditions are not extreme, stopping and restarting the engine will often reset it.
