No, not the battery. Check your manual to see if this is a check engine light or a warning light for another system. If the car turns off suddenly while driving, you may have a dirty ISC motor which is a common problem on all Toyotas. It takes about 1.25 hours to clean this (because it is hard to get to) and clean the trottle body. The check engine light may point you to this. Also, there may be a sensor causing all of your woes. TPS or throttle position sensor can do this, but is not the only cause. You may need to first find out if there is a check engine light code first and then go from there.

Why does my darango shut off while driving?


If it's an exclamation point inside a triangle, it's called a master warning symbol. This is the Master Warning Light symbol. If this light is on, there will likely be text displayed as well on the instrument panel, or another warning light. Look for text in particular. It could very well point out something as serious as low oil pressure. If the engine is not running, you can't very well check your gauges, but you may have lost all oil pressure or overheated the engine. Recommend you consult a mechanic familiar with your model.

An icon in the instrument cluster that looks like a warning comes on when i start the car. the icon is a red triangle with an exclamation point in the middle. there is also a smaller orange icon that of...


I suggest that you get the instructions manual, you will find what the icon indicates there... you can also visit a local dealership and have a few chat with the mechanic. I'm sure they will not charge you for a very basic question.

2006 Honda crv, vsa, abs, and triangle light are permanently on


You are talking about the VSA activation indicator (triangle with exclamation point in the middle):
This indicator has three functions:

It comes on as a reminder that you have turned off the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system.

It flashes when VSA is active.

It comes on along with the VSA system indicator (the rectangle with VSA in it) if there is a problem with the VSA system.

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, and when the ignition switch is turned to the START (III) position.

Hope this helps you understand the problem.

Exclamation Point indicator is on ...Why???


The exclamation point inside the lines(which are supposed to be a tire symbol) is a low tire pressure warning indicator. Check all tire pressures, as a drop of just 10% will set the lamp off. It will take up to 5 minutes with the car running for the lamp to shut off after filling tires.
Hope this helps..
