Hi !
The Yellow Exclamation Point is the indicator of malfunction in the Power Steering system.
1. Check the Tension of the Power steering Belt.
2. Check Oil level of Power steering , this must be below MIN level.
This is in a white bottle next to Break fluid.

Regards
Berry

    check your stats on this vehicle.....this vehicle does not have hoses and pumps....it involves an "electric power steering pump" that has demonstrated dangerous and consistent power steering problems in many, many vehicles. They need to do a mass recall due to the seriousness of the problem before someone gets killed.

Yellow light on dash panel...looks like exclamation mark in circle. That blinks..what does this mean


Some cars have tire pressure sensors that can cause an indicator with an exclamation point to appear on the instrument panel.

Check the pressure in all of your tires.

Your car manual (probably crammed into your glove box somewhere) will have a diagram of all the instrument panel lights and a brief description of what they all mean.

What does the yellow cog light on the dash of my 1999 BMW Z3 mean?


The car is now quite old, and the yellow gear ("cog") light indicates that the hydraulic pressure in the transmission is incorrect. Check fluid level and, if the fluid is murky or off-color, have the transmission serviced and the filter replaced.

I have a light on my dash with an exclamation point enclosed in what looks like parenthesis with verticle lines underneath. It's yellow. Do you know what it is?


If it looks like a deflating tire with an exclamation mark inside, its the check your tire pressure light.

If its a triangle with exclamation mark inside its the check engine light.

Exclamation point warning light came on...what


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )

A red exclamation point inside a circle when lit indicates your parking brake is on, or your brake fluid level is low.

That exclamation light on the dash board indicates low tire pressure. Check the air in all your tires and make sure they are all filled to proper levels and it should turn off.

SEAT TOLEDO WARNING LIGHTS


Could be the motor-management-warning light, but I guess it's the break-warning light. There might be too little breaking-fluid left in the lines ... A boardcomputer-readout should clarify this.

Otherwise, try parking on an ascending road with the nose pointing up, hit the hand-break and wait like 2 minutes; the light should come on. You might wanna retry it with the car's nose pointing downwards as well ... If so, definitely the breaking-fluid, otherwise probably not ;)

In any case - flashing warning light are never ok, so when you see it again and you're sure it's not just the ABS/ESP warning light, go and have your boardcomputer read-out, since it should contain useful errorcodes ..
