SOURCE: changing instrument panel light bulbs

You have to remove the entire cluster assembly to get to the bulbs, there is no other way, no room for this man's hand at the back.

SOURCE: Green light on instrument panel

Hiya--the green headlamp logo on the instrument panel comes on automatically after you start up the engine.
The green light comes on when your headlight switch is on 'auto' until you turn it to 'parking lights' or 'full on' function, that'll turn off the green light...it's normal.
The other thing is if one of 2 headlight bulb reach the end of bulb life, the green light will flash on/off a few times then stay off....until you or the garage shop put in new headlight bulb.

first inspect ur tires for nails, screws, etc...check ur tire pressure and adjust if necessary. put 32psi , drive it at 30 mph, and the light should go off by itself. if not u may have a tire sensor problem which u will need to take to ur local dealer or tire shop.

SOURCE: Instrument Panel lights went out. Fuses good.

Try a new fuse, sometimes the fuses are bad even when they look good buy new and try three or four of them just a thought.

SOURCE: lights on instrument panel: light bulb looking

I had a similar problem with my 2006 Jetta one month ago. You need to have a friend sit in the driver's seat while you stand fifteen or twenty feet behind the car. Have him or her press on the brakes, press the brakes and turn on the emergency flashers, turn on the blinkers with the brakes on and off. Eventually you will find out which bulb is burnt out and it is a breeze the change the bulb. It took us several combinations of brakes/blinkers and looking at the front and back of the car to finally see which headlight was burnt out.

Yellow light on dash panel...looks like exclamation mark in circle. That blinks..what does this mean


Some cars have tire pressure sensors that can cause an indicator with an exclamation point to appear on the instrument panel.

Check the pressure in all of your tires.

Your car manual (probably crammed into your glove box somewhere) will have a diagram of all the instrument panel lights and a brief description of what they all mean.

Chech engine light just came on i was going to get the oil change on monday does the oil have anything to do with the light coming on


  • The light on the left side of the instrument panel is a maintenance required light. If that is the light lit up then yes this means time for an oil change.
  • If the light lit up is on the right side of the instrument panel then this is the Check Engine Light and a scan will need to be done to see what is going on with the car.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

What's the meaning of a symbol looking red with a car/wrench on the instrument panel of a 2003 saturn l200? horn don't sound,ac won't work,doors won't unlock after ignition is turned off.


A wrench symbol is the equivalent to a check engine light. Take your car into a mechanic and let them diagnose the error code the engine light is storing to help diagnose the problem.

2005-2006 model Ford Taurus...has orange warning light in the instrument panel...looks like a little engine with a fan on the end of it. What does that mean?


This is the check/service engine light. They will go off when the computer senses a fault such as bad sensor or bad electrical circuit. Most part stores will test the car by running an engine code diagnostic scan which will pinpoint exact problem area. Most shops charge $40 which is well worth it.

Oil light comes on


Yellow oil can lit means you need to top up the oil. Red oil can means you have lost oil pressure.
