Only critical if you have a running issue. It may be just an emissions problem. I would get it checked out as soon as poss. just in case. Hope this helps.

This is your ck engine light

with out ck'n the fault codes

you have no idea

could be a reminder to fill your washerfluid
or a intermitant fault with your engine sensors
If I were to guess I would say a 06 could have as many as
300 possible fault codes
code readers are not expensive (30 bucks)
but don't buy one most national auto parts supplyers
will ck your codes for FREE just drive up and ask em

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,

Blinking redlight over temp gauge on 2006 grand caravan sxt


This light warns of an overheated engine condition. If the engine is critically hot, a continuous chime will sound for 4 minutes. After the chime turns off, the engine will still be critically hot until the light turns off. does the symbol look like a thermometer? of so, that is what is is. If it's just a dot blinking, it's the security system. Does that help?

Please rate me, thanks!moz-screenshot-2.pngmoz-screenshot-3.pngmoz-screenshot-4.pngmoz-screenshot-5.png
