The only way to diagnose why it is on is to have a scan done to read engine codes. The light is on possibly because of a bad sensor or circuit. Many part stores will test for free. Auto shops is about $40

When this light is on it means a fault has occured in the electronic engine and emmission sytem, there are well over 200 such faults that turn the light on, each has a number code staring with the letter "P", you will need to have the system tested to see what code you have and what system malfunction is the problem.

Is it safe to drive whilst the yellow engine symbol is on the dashboard?


If it is the check engine light, Yellow light that looks like a engine, or may say "Check engine", Yes, it is safe to drive until you can get it checked. As long as the vehicle is driving normal. If the light starts flashing, DO NOT DRIVE it. A flashing check engine light means a misfire and could cause a fire due to raw fuel going down the exhaust into the cat converters.

Take it in, a blinking check engine light is not a good sign. Solid yellow is ok, blinking yellow or red is in need of service. Get the codes checked asap.

The check engine light comes on if there is an issue.But Honda also has preset the Check engine light to come on to remind you of oil changes.If you want to shut the Check engine light off.There is a Yellow Reset Button inside the Fuse panel.

Yellow engine light went on. What does this mean?


Hi there,

The yellow/orange Engine Check Light is an indicator that your vehicle's computer has detected an abnormality within the engine's electronics or emission system.

Sometimes it can be a one-off abnormality, which eventually rectifies itself within 40 drive cycles.

However, if the Engine light remains lit, then this is an indication of something more concerning (but not necessarily serious).

If it does remain lit when driving, then you should have your local Jaguar service agent scan the computer for "trouble codes", which will quickly identify the component and/or location of the problem.


Hope this helps...


Cheers,

Yellow engine light(IDK)?


the yellow light is the check engine light, the best thing you can do is find someone who has a hand held code reader and let him come to your house. it will pull the code on the engine and tell you exactly whats wrong.
