An orange warning light shaped like an engine has come on what does it mean


Engine warning light

eng_man_light_72.jpg Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter

Readjust the Serpentine belt as the solution for the chirping sound. The check engine light could be a lot of things. Take it to the local Auto parts store and ask them to read the fault code for you. It is most likely the O2 sensor needing replaced and is an easy fix.

I have a 1999 Dodge Stratus and when the car comes to a complete stop after its been warmed up, the oil light comes on. This goes away as soon as I step on the gas. I've checked the oil and there is a...


The oil pump may be going out - the light indicates the pressure is below the proper level and when you step on the gas it spins faster/raises the pressure back up to an acceptable level.

This is something to get checked RIGHT AWAY, as these cars have a history of engine failure....possibly due to low oil pressure.

Check this LINK for more info.

The emissions system may be related, but get the oil pressure issue fixed 1st.

Transmission not wanting to shift with fast take off ,check engine light is on, seems to work ok with slow take off.


Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
