Hi


The yellow check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. However, as you are facing surge issue, it can be due to bad plug, bad fuel injector or a bad egr valve.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

Brake light on dash stays on even when the emergency brake is released


That brake light also indicates when your brake fluid is low. Check your brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir and add some if necessary. Also, check the braking system for leaks.

My dash brake light stays on. I checked the brake fluid level. It is full , no leaks. Brakes work fine. what can I do to turn it off?


Maybe it is the sensor for your park brake lever-it thinks your park brake is on. These can go bad also-check and see if yours looks faulty-if its cheap, might be worth a shot a changing it out, see if it goes away.

Hope this helps.

Hand brake light on dash of my 1983 FJ40 will not turn off


Hi. Look at the brake master cylinder. See if the brake fluid is low. If there is a wire and a connector on the side of the reservoir, this is the 'fluid-height sensor' when the fluid is low (as the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionally), the fluid level is below the sensor, and creates a circuit, thusly illuminating the light.

Brake light on dash stays on but sometimes goes off when cornering. Whats wrong


Check your brake fluid level. If the level is low, it will cause this. Also- if the level is significantly low, have your brakes checked, or check them yourself. When brake pads or shoes wear down, the level of fluid in the reservoir will drop accordingly with it.

Unknown light on dash


It sounds like a brake pad warning light. Sometimes can be linked in with the brake fluid light.
Check the brake fluid level first. If its ok then check the front brake pads. If the pads are worn down the fluid level will have dropped. Also if the fluid level is low the sensor will bring on the light.
