SOURCE: Possible o2 sensor 2002 GMC Onvoy

O2 sensors indicate unburned oxygen in the exhaust sysytem. Bad O2 sensors causes fuel mixture to run rich. It causes fuel consumption and your emmissions test will not pass. Check for vacuum leaks check the manifold.check for a misfiring cylinder, a burned exhaust valve that is leaking compression. replace the O2 sensor or sensors. Some cars have 2 . One for the intake another for the out take. If it reads a code for the Map sensor along with the O2. It is better ifyou replace both sensors. But I think that the problem lies in the oxygen sensor or sensors. Pleae vote my answer if this helps.

SOURCE: Water on floorboard caused by heavy rain. possible drain plugged up. How hard is it to fix myself.

The plastic cowl that goes between the windshield and the air intake inlet for the cabin blower motor needs a seal added to it. Go to a hardware store and get a thin 3/16" thick or less weatherstripping seal and place this on the plastic cowl piece. There might already be some there from the factory but it is most likely hard and cracked. This will keep the majority of the water from running into the air intake box. Also there is suppose to be a rubber seal on the edge of the sheetmetal just above the air intake. Make sure that weatherstripping piece is in place and not torn in any way.

SOURCE: When the roof is open, the warning light won't go out.

I know that when you lower the top, you have to hold the button up for several seconds after the top is completely lowered in order for the locks to engage. The top motor will still run and when it is finished, you will hear a "ding". to indicate it is fully down. The error will go away and your temp will show up again. I had to call the dealer to find this out.

What do the Dashboard Symbols Mean?

I have a mini cooper and every so often symbols come on when I first start up the car. Evidently this is the only time these symbols come on (versus staying on if there is a problem) which is a hassle, because its hard to remember what they are. But here is a list I found to help other Mini drivers like myself:

gbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg" alt="write_tip-xzo4jfw5th4gnzgbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg">
  1. Oil Pressure Warning Light. This symbol light usually is turned on when the ECU of the car detects any problem with the oil pressure. It usually indicates that the engine oil level is too low. Solution: Stop the car immediately, switch off the engine, and wait until the engine is cool down, top up the engine oil if the level is low. If the light is still on, consult any mechanic. P/S: This light is usually on when you switch on the ignition and it should be gone as soon as the engine starts.
  2. Battery Charge Warning Light. If the light is on during the car is running, it indicates that the car batteryis not charge. It could be some faulty of the charging system. Solution: Consult any mechanic.
  3. Brake System Warning Light. If the e-brake or handbrake is engaged, the light will on. If the light remains illuminated after the handbrake is released, it may indicate brake fluid level is low. If the fluid level is correct, it may be the sensor fault.
  4. ABS Warning Light. If the light is on while driving, it indicates a malfunction of the ABS system.Solution: Consult a mechanic as soon as possible.
  5. Warning light - Unidentified problem. Computer or ECU in the car sometimes hardly knows what the problem is. It usually indicates the car needs to be serviced.
  6. Engine Warning Light/OBD Indicator. You can always see this symbol in mostthe cars. If the light is on, it indicates that the car should be serviced. It could probably the engine malfunction or some other problems related to the car engine.
  7. Low Fuel. It's LOWWWWWWWWW FUEL, Please refill!
  8. High Beam Light. This symbol light is on when the driver turn on the high beam mode of the headlights. If the light is on when high beam is off, it could be the sensor's fault.
  9. Windshield Wash Symbols. Most of the new car has windshield wash, therefore this icon is common for most of the cars. The symbol notifies the driver when the windshield wipers are activated.
  10. Windshield Defrost. It is turned on once the driver presses the windshield defrost button.
gbq2mr3zjq-1-2.jpg" alt="write_tip-xzo4jfw5th4gnzgbq2mr3zjq-1-2.jpg">
  1. Fuel Filter Water Trap. This symbol is normal but ONLY for diesel engines car. If the light is on while driving the car, it indicates water is detected in the fuel filter. Solution: It is usually safe to drive the car but have to get the water in the fuel filter drained off as soon as possible.
  2. Temperature Warning Light. The symbol looks like a thermometer. It warns the driver that the engine is overheating. Solution: Find a safe place and stop the car immediately.
  3. Fog Beam Indicator. This is pretty basic and pretty simple. If the fog beam is on, the symbol illuminates.

My Charging Warning System and Immobilizer indicator warning light is both on after my 2004 Kia Amanti is running and put in drive.

Was the battery unhooked recently, Alternator or battery could be faulty, you can check them with a digital meter. The Immobilizer light may go away after you adress the battry/charging fault.

Kia carens oil light staying on engine sluggish

Hi John, The oil pressure warning light is indicating pressure not level. You say the warning light is on at all times and the engine is losing power? I believe you should have a compression test carried out on the vehicle. It seems highly possible there has been severe damage to the engine. Is the engine emitting any strange sounds? How long has the oil light been on? How often do you service the vehicle by replacing all filters and engine oil? What engine oil do you use? Regards John

2007 kia spectra takes several tries to start

If at all possible you need to check fuel pressure, fuel pressure should be at 49~50.5psi and should hold there. If pressure is low could be fuel filter or fuel pump or if pressuer does not hold then fuel is draining back into the tank causing an extended crank and is most likely the fuel pump assembly, it has a check valve that is suppose to hold the fuel pressure after shut off so the next time you start the engine the pressure will be there and engine will start right away. And keep in mind that I reccomend going this route ONLY because there are no warning lights, if you get a Check Engine Light (CEL) or a Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) then you may have another problem and it needs to be checked with a computer. Good luck, hope this helps.

I drive a toyta estima lucida Diesel 4WD 1992 model. There is a small orange symbol on the extreme left of the odometer. It just appeared after I engaged the auto gear shaft. What is this orange symbol?

Does it look like a tank with a drain at the bottom of it? If so it could be the fuel filter water level warning light. This means there is water accumulated in the bottom of the fuel filter. Open the drain on the filter and catch the contents in a container. If water is present it will be noticeable as it will be separate from the diesel fuel. Replace the drain and pump the button on the top of the filter housing while starting the engine. Keep pumping until you notice the pump going hard.
Another possibility is that it is the brake light warning light, if it looks like a car with lights shining out the rear then it is possible that when you put your foot on the brake to engage the gear shifter, it picked up that there is a blowen brake light bulb. Check the bulbs. To replace them you need to pop the cover off the rear door, it is quite tight and held by many plastic clips. Some models have a provision that allows you to remove small plastic covers to access the bulbs.

I own a 2008 dodge ram diesel 6.7 has a lightning symbol in the middle of this ) ( and a check gauges message when this comes on.

The indicator you see is call a water in fuel warning lamp. ==== This a very important warning and you will need to take corrective action ASAP. ==== As a diesel owner,you need to know diesel fuel can attract moisture. When condensation (water droplets) collect inside the fuel tank,it will contaminate the diesel. ==== The corrective action is to locate the drain **** on the fuel filter and CAREFULLY drain the water from the bottom of the filter housing. (with engine off / key out) ==== The water in fuel warning light will go off as soon as the water is drained. ==== Use one bottle of RED Iso-Heet to remove any additional water inside the fuel tank.mustgo_54.jpg
