It means that the engine has thrown a code, bring it to a shop or an auto store to have it put on a computer to find out what code has been thrown...

Aygo dashboard signs

that little orange light is the check engine warning light.
that means there could be something significantly wrong
the light is turned on by the computer in the car, the computer was told by one or more of the electronic sensors that something is not correctly working.
Take you car in a service repair company or the dealer and have the "engine check light diagnosed" they will tell you afterward what could be not working correctly.

I have an orange light in the dashboard. It does

you might have to get gas. if it goes away after you fill up, its your gas light telling you you need fuel. or it could be your engine light. ifit is oddly shaped and illuminates after you start and when you start your engine needs service. probably low coolant, low oil or something has caused it to go off. you will have to go to a mechanic and get you cars computer checked. as it will tell you whats wrong. tip: don't buy anything the mechanics tell you you need after they fixed your problem. they are lying and trying to get more money out of you. as you are obviously inexperienced and they will take advantage of you.

I have x reg toyota corolla there is an orange light on the dashboad that looks like a car with two diagonal lines what ist it or what should I do

This yellow sign is called Malfunction Engine Light (MIL), Engine Light Soon or Check Engine Light (CEL). This light is provided to let the driver know that something has happened wrong with any of the sensors and needs to visit garage to diagnose the problem.
You should get it checked from any of the workshops ASAP.
After the light comes on, the engine runs in fail safe mode, the emission system is disabled which may result in more fuel consumption, poor drive ability and unstable engine rpm.

I have a orange light that stays on but dont know what the symbol means volvo v40 1999 car

So your check engine light came on. I would definately reset the error registry by disconnecting your battery for a couple of minutes...reconnect battery. Start the car up and see if the light still comes on...If it does, I would recommend getting the code read to determine exactly what it means. Could be something as simple as a sensor to something more serious.

Warning light (orange)indicating check engine is always on. even engine dipstick says ok

It is an Amber check engine lite that comes and it tells you there is something wrong in the computer system or an emmission control device. Take to local shop and have checked. If it is flashing do not drive "TOW" only

My check engine light is blinking and it feels like it wants to shut off and the catalyst conventer is orange? what needs to be change

Take the car to the dealer. Or better yet tow it there before you catch it on fire something is wrong with the engine or emission control system. This problem is causing raw gasoline exhaust to pass into the catalitic convertor where it is burning causing the cat to glow orange. This is very dangerous it can cause a fire.

Orange check light on what does it mean cant tell what the symbol is?

The orange check light is the Check Engine light. This comes on when you have something wrong with the systems/sensors that are controlled by the vehicle's computer. The Check Engine light comes on for a myriad of reasons, the number one culprit is a loose fuel filler cap. What I would suggest to you is to take your car to an Autozone or somewhere where you could get a scanner plugged into your car's diagnostic connector, and get the reason for the light being on identified. Once you have the trouble code, you can get back to me for additional info to rectify your situation!
