That is your check engine light. It could be any number of sensors that is tripping it. It could be something as simple as a gas cap but it could be something serious as well and the signs that something's wrong aren't always immediate. The best thing to do is take it to the dealer and have them scan and see what the issue is. If you don't feel like spending that much money you can take it to a local parts store and most can scan it, but they aren't always reliable.

Light on the dash comes on and off the light is yellow and on right hand side shaped like watering can

It could be the low oil pressure warning light. That light looks like an oil can with one drip of oil on the tip.
If that is the light it is telling you the oil pressure in the engine is low.
You might want to check with a dealer to make sure if you don't have an owners manual.

The check engine light is flashing

Well, with tune up done, it could be ANY of the following. Low fuel pressure, no spark, bent intake or exhaust valve, bad oil rings, flat spot on cam shaft, now I don't know anything about "CRV" these are just possible causes on any gasoline engines. If I had more experince with these I might be able to tell you but I can't. Look online for your vechile recalls, I suggest they'll have alot of recalls and other notices on your vechile if there is any.

My two far right indicator lights have been coming on. one looks like a temperature gauge dipped in water and the other looks like a battery with a symbol in the middle.

The battery shaped one indicates that the battery isn't being properly charged by the alternator and the voltage is getting low. The thermometer shaped one indicates that the engine is overheating when it is illuminated. Since both are coming on at about the same time and both the alternator and water pump are belt driven I would start by having the serpentine drive belt and pulleys checked to make sure they are in good condition and capable of driving both items. The coolant level and battery should also be checked at the same time. These engines don't tolerate being overheated so don't continue to drive it with the high temp warning light on or you could severly damage the engine.

I have a 1986 Honda Prelude with a A18A1. I'm having issues with it, the engine runs rough until engine speeds are above 2000 RPM's then it runs like a champ. Put new spark plugs in and fuel additive....

Is the cap and rotor in good shape? Doesn't sound like a vacuum leak. It's possible there is a problem with your distributor but not sure what. Is the timing belt in good shape?

Honda crv 2001 orang light on dash showing shape of engine, what does it mean, just bought car not got manual,also need extra central locking key , best place to buy?

Light means service engine soon...may be something simple...a sensor going bad etc! As far as the locking key...go to a good lock-smith, remotes cost @$70 maybe more, and i had to pay about $30 for a new pellet key blank. hope this helps and could i get some thumbs up? thanks!

Warning Light

its the check engine light. A sensor is failing and may fail completely soon. If no running problems are experienced it may be the O2 sensor in the exhaust header or cat pipe.

The owners manual will not tell you what this means, you will need to get someone with a diagnostic tool for honda or OBDII to pull the fault code from the ECU then take it from there.

Here are a couple of suggestions.

1. Check to see if the electric cooling fans are working properly. Let the car idle until the engine gets hot. Watch to see if the dual fans ever kick in. If the fans never turn on then the problem could be the fans themselves, the fan relay, a fuse, or a temperature sensor.

2. Your thermostat may be stuck closed.

3. When the service engine light is on you can take the car to most auto parts stores and they will pull the codes for you for free. This could help to identify where the problem is.

Running the AC will make the car overheat faster because it loads the engine down. If you driving somewhere and you think you might be overheating and you can't stop to let the car cool down you can roll down the windows and turn on the heater. The heater works by pulling heat out of the engine and moving it to the passenger compartment. It may be uncomfortable but it can temporarily prevent your engine from overheating. This technique is especially useful if you're driving through a desert like in the southwest.
