Red always means BAD. Something is wrong and it needs to be fixed NOW. Yellow is a warning, not RED. A/C sign? Do you mean a symbol for a fan? If so it means you are overheating which is VERY bad. Check the coolant when the car is Cold only.

What is the red warning light on dashboard of 2005 dodge caravan?


it is the immobilizer indicator ( red light far right hand corner of dash) it usally means that key is not communicating with computer , try another key ? or if your battery went dead this could cause communacation failure? check your ground to battery and then leave battery disconnected for a few hours , and if there is someone who can scan for codes and wright down any that are there and then clear codes, it can also just be a computer failure that has triggered that light.

What does the red car on dashboard mean?


What does your manual say, it will inform you as to the symbol and what a flashing or steady light means etc. Also to be on the safe side it would be in your best interest to also include the make and model of your car for a better answer.

93 Buick LeSabre. Battery not charging


use a volt meter while the car is running to check the main wire or large red wire coming off the back of the alternator it should read a steady 14 volts, the volt meter must be set at dc 10 amp settings, ground the black wire to ground or a metal surface some where on the car and touch the red probe wire on the volt meter to the main terminal of the alternator as i said it should read a constant 14 volts if it doesn't the alternator is bad.

Warning Light


On the Festiva, there is no amp meter on the dash, so you have to rely on a red light that comes on if there is a problem with the battery or charging system. The light is on your dash and has a + - sign on it, indicating that its related to the battery/charging system.

Dashboard goes on and off. Won't start.


Same problem on Buick Reatta and Riv's The most common problem lies in the connection at the battery, The large positive terminal often doesnt tighten up.to provide a good constant contact one thing I found is to use a longer bolt with lock washers. The flickering of the dash is associated with this anad there may be a loose connection behind the dash itself, The electronic dashes of that era were hypersensitive to changes in the current, Make sure that all of the connections at the battery are tight. Also did you check the alternator for proper operation?

It means that your brakes are worn. REMEBER: If you are going to replace them yourself remeber to also buy the brake sensor witch will be located on the on the right or the left hand side Im not sure . . . .It is just a wire connected to a sensor that clip's on the outer brake pad.
