Typically when the warning light comes on, it will log a trouble code in the computer. The code can be read by any repair shop and many of the auto parts stores will do it for free. Once they see the code(s), they'll be able to tell you what the issue is.

Meaning of warning lights


Manufacturers spend billions of dollars a year refining their cars' on-board diagnostics systems. However, all of the sophisticated diagnostics in the world will do little good if you don't know what the warning lights mean.
Purpose
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors to monitor engine, braking and chassis performance. Any deviation from the car's established limits will trigger a dashboard warning light.


Check Engine Light
Check engine lights can indicate failure of the emissions system, fuel injection system, faulty sensor feedback, overheating or lack of voltage, transmission failure, and engine knock ignition system failure.


Brake Lights
Almost all cars have two separate lights for the braking system: a red "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light and "Brake Warning" light. The former indicates failure of the electronic anti-lock system, the latter a loss of fluid pressure in the brake system itself.


Dynamic Warnings
Many modern cars have traction or stability control systems that prevent and notify the driver of tire slippage. These lights can come in the form of amber "SLIP," "TC," or "TRACTION" lights (for spinning tires), or "ESC" (electronic stability control) lights for a sliding vehicle.


Safety Lights
Most cars have a diagrammatic warning that indicates a door that isn't all the way closed, a seat-belt warning light, and an "airbag disabled/enabled" light. Any or all of these will be red or amber.

I have a 2004 2 door Dodge Stratus Coupe, the SRS light is on. The mechanic says it is traction control but I don't know how to turn it off.


I do not know why the mechanic would suggest the SRS warning light relates to the traction control because it has absolutely nothing to do with the TC system.

SRS means "Supplementary Restraint System" - ie, the vehicles airbag system. If the warning light comes on the system has recognised that there is a fault with the airbag system which could mean it would not deploy as designed in the case of an accident. The causes of the warning light can be numerous including a failed sensor, a problem in the wiring or physical interference with the wiring, one of the electrical plug connections coming loose or being disconnected, a problem with the seat belt pretensioners etc etc.

You should take the vehicle to a dealer to have the problem properly diagnosed, rectified and the computer reset.

Normally the warning light will continue to display every time you start driving the vehicle until the cause of the problem is identified and the issue is fixed.

The airbag system is an important safety feature designed to eliminate or reduce injury in the case of an accident. Manufacturers do not include warning systems like this to annoy owners. Just ignoring the warning and looking for ways to just remove the warning would be irresponsible, especially if you are using the vehicle to also carry passengers.

On my 2008 ford escape, there is a light on my dashboard that keeps coming on. it looks like a box with an exclamation mark in the middle. i dont know what that means. im wondering if i need a tune up or...


Brake warning light.

If the light is on all the time, it could mean you simply forgot to release the parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is released, then something is amiss.
In some cases, the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking brake pedal or lever is misadjusted. Nothing is wrong with the brakes and a simple adjustment should fix the problem.
If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes, or is on continuously, it means that hydraulic pressure has been lost in one side of the brake system or that the fluid level in the master cylinder is dangerously low (due to a leak somewhere in the brake system). In either case, the fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked. Adding brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir may temporarily solve the problem. But if there's a leak, the new fluid will soon be lost and the warning light will come back on.

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

What is the icon's mean on the dash board, when climbing on a hill there's a red light on, but going down it turns off. it looks like there's is over heating or something, please help max'd 07


It depends on what warning light is on!
In any case, from your description and experience, it would be your engine 'Oil' warning light: it comes on when there is not enough lubrication (thus the overheating) flowing because of low oil pressure: immediately check your oil leveland top up as required) and make sure that change your oil and oil filter as soon as possible as it is a very damaging condition and the engine could seize.
Hope it helps: let me know hoe you go.

Light on the dash


You can check them with a "OBD2" diagnostic scanner. Once you find out what is wrong, You can turn the light off via the scanner. If you have an Auto Zone store near you, the have a tool loan program. All you have to do is leave a deposit and when you return the scanner they will give all your money back. Hope this helps.
