This means something is wrong. The next step is to pull the error codes, from the computer. DO NOT let this condition continue, as other damage may occur. Any incorrect emission issue exposed your converter to damage...

What does the spanner sign light mean on a Mitsibishi Outlander?

this usually is a maintenance reminder light the factory installs to have the driver get the car in for usually a emission component check(components that affect emissions) to make sure they are working.then they turn the light off.if maintenance has been done regularly and the check engine light(service engine soon light)hasn`t come on then you could take it to a shop that has the capability to turn off the light and have them turn the light off.some of these will come on after so many miles(kilometers) of driving just to get the car in for a service.

I have a 2008 db9... I have two lights on. 1- engine coolant level. Question is , can I fill it in any station or I have to fill it in the work shop ? 2- emission system service ( light on ) it's...

" emission system service" this one is coming with any other problem.
i mean because u have the first problem the second light come also.

u can fill the engine coolant level by ur self using the "Overline ****" check the user manual they post the oil name.
but it will be great if u send it to the local dealer because the oil level should be grantee for 5 years.

Emission light comes on? thanks brant

The check engine light/service engine soon (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Auto start on my 2007 chevy impla stop working

Since the service engine light only comes on when there's a problem with the fuel, ignition or emission control system the car will automatically disable the car remote because it thinks there might be a problem with the emissions of the vehicle. I suspect it's to prevent further pollution if the car is in fact having a emission problems. In my case(s), the emssion sensor gets dirty and causes the sevice engine light to come on. Bring it to the shop and put the scope on it to make sure there's nothing wrong and reset the error msg. Next time, run it through a car wash, shut the vehicle off and start it again. The service engine light usually disappears for me (thus cleaning the sensor). If your engine light is not on check your fuses. <!-- from fixya rte -->

The emission light and service vehicle light are on

No! Your car won't shut down BUT they probably won't give you an inspection sticker. Its not a big expense. Depends if they sell you the canister with the sensor or just the sensor.

VW Passat 2001: Exhaust emission warning lamp flashing. Manual says 'blinks if the catalyst can be damaged by misfires'. Any suggestions?

"Check engine light" EMISSIONS WORKSHOP! Do you want to shut it off??? After reading all of the negative comments and how much money Passat owners have spent due to this manufacturer's problem, I am going to save the day and save you $$$ by showing you how to "reset" the diagnostic computer which makes the "emissions workshop-check engine light come on! (This is the same thing the VW dealer will charge you hundreds of dollars to do.) To turn off the "Check Engine" (Emissions Workshop) light, simply follow these 5 basic steps:
1. Pop open the hood.
2. Insert the key in the ignition and turn without starting the engine until all of the dash indicators light and warning tones sound.
3. With the key still in the ignition, use a 10mm wrench or socket to loosen and completely disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery. Wait about 60 seconds before reconnecting.
4. Re-connect and tighten the negative (-) cable to the battery and close the hood.
If the light stays on, then there really is a problem. If it has turned off, be glad, but don't be surprised to see it come on again in a few weeks. If it comes on again, simply follow steps 1-5. Remember... This quick repair is for those who just can't stand looking at this light or afford to visit VW every time this light comes on. If you feel the need to service the vehicle, service the vehicle. I hope this has made your "NIGHTMARE" a little easier!!!

Saturn ion 3 - service engine soon light

this light comes on only when there is an emission sensor malfunction. you need a code reader to find out why it came on, and only a scanner can turn it off . i strongly suggest you see a mechanic who is good with emission diagnostic skill.
