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,

CTS 2009 Reset, recurring of fuel gauge and engine light issue ?


I would first try to do a hard reset which means disconnecting your battery for 24 hours, that solves more problems than you would imagine.
Good luck.

I have a Mitsubishi lancer glx 2004 and my engine just stops in the middle of driving. Before that the rpm drops down but when i went to have it check out they just clean the air filter and it went...


Sounds like you have an electrical loose connection. I would target the fuel pump relay. It is probably shutting off and coincidentally, reconnects when you stop and start again. Could also be the ECM, Mitsubishi has problems with these I have seen. Google your car make, year, and symptom. Read the blogs.

What do the warning lights on the 2004 VW Passat dashboard mean as they are a few flashing and I don't know what they mean?


Depending on which light is flashing will determine whats wrong, normally thee are three lights that flash one is yellow check engine light, when it flashes it means a misfire and catastrophic catalytic converter failure. Red oil light means your low on oil and if it does not have a gage you may have damaged the engine and then there is several others like air bag warning light this would be caused by a defective clock spring, or a malfunction in the computer system. Your best bet is call your local dealer and describe to them your problem and tell them what lights are flashing they can determine weather you should drive it or have it towed in for repairs. Remember FLASHING RED OR Yellow light means imminent failure of expensive engine parts.

Yellow light shaped like an engine came on. What


That is the check engine light. It means that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for the codes. Most parts store will do the scan for free. The codes will show what faults the computer has identified. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Unknown light


this is for the vehicle stability (VSA) system.AKA electronic stability control. It adjusts engine speed and brakes to keep the car under control. When this is on steady, it means your VSA system is off, when it blinks on and off, it means your system is on and making adjustments, if it's on w/ VSA light, there is a problem w/ the system. countrycurt0
