No this is to let you know that there is a problem in the emissions control system,eithr a O2 sensor,evap system or some leak,best thing to do is have it scan for the emision system.

Airbag light is remaining on when the engine has started. I tryed to manually resetting by disconnecting the battery but this did not help. I have a 2005 hyundia tuson.

dealer only they use encrypted software on later models from 2005 and although you have a OBDII plug under dash its only for show or the american market for the emisions test ,The actual diagnostic plug is under the bonnet with a fancy shape thats copyrighted so no made up bits for aftermarket readers.Doesnt help general mechanics like myself much

My dash board lights just went off.what must be happening

It could be something very simple. You may have bumped the dash board light dimmer switch. It is a small slider switch directly above the rear fog light switch which is directly above the headlight switch. This slide switch will adjust the brightness of your dash board lights or shut them off. If you didn't bump this switch, then this switch may just be bad and need replacing. If everything else works, then it is probably the switch.

Light on dash came on to say check emisions, possible cause please.

It may be an O2 sensor that has gone bad. Depending upon the make, year, and model of vehicle you have this may be the cause. depending upon where you live, if you have an Autozone near by you can take your car there and they will check it with there handheld computer for free. It basically reads the code on your dash and will tell you is wrong. I hope this helps.

Dash board lights out and tail lights working intermittently

Looks like a bad headlamp switch. Poor contact inside the switch contacts will cause this issue.
