I just bought a 2014 Dodge Journey R/T and every time we go to back up the Park Assist Service logo comes on. Is this something major that I need to get fixed right away?

If the Parking Assist symbol is flashing or yellow in color, or both, the system has detected an issue and will be disabled temporarily. One of the most common malfunctions isn't actually a malfunction, it may just be some dirt covering the sensors. If too much dirt covers the sensors, they will not be able to measure distances accurately. To prevent any accidents, the whole system will be disabled and you'll have to rely on your eyes to park your car. Once you clean the car by washing it, the parking assist should return to normal. If washing the car doesn't help, you'll need the help of a certified technician to identify any issues.

I just got it , my oil is fine it doesn't need to be changed and my air filter was recently changed

Have it checked for codes

The shop will use the codes to diagnose &
repair whatever the issues are

No need to worry, but you need to make
repairs if necessary, whenever you get a
dash light like a small engine symbol

That symbol is an OBD2 System MIL Lamp
( Malfunction Indicator Lamp)

A key symbol on dashboard and lights are not working

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.

There's a lit up symbol that has just shown up by the blinker lights on the dashboard. I just had my transmission fluid changed, do you know what it could be? The picture looks like an engine

This is your MIL, or 'Malfunction Indicator Lamp'. It is more commonly know as a 'Check Engine Light'. When this light comes on, there has been a fault somewhere in the system, which will cause a code to be stored in the ECU, or 'Engine Control Unit'. A scan tool needs to be connected to your vehicle to read this code. The code will allow you or your mechanic to further diagnose the problem.

Hope this helps!

Park brake light flashes 10 times. For 1989 Chevy 1500 pickup. What does this mean?

This truck probably has Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brakes. There is a small black module near master cylinder that is the brain for this system. There are ways to check for diagnostic trouble codes in this system. Once you have any codes set, diagnosis can be fairly simple. PROCEDURE:
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) 's can be displayed by jumping terminals "A" and "H" of the Data Link Connector and observing the flashing of the "BRAKE" warning light. This should only be done when the brake lamp is "ON".
The terminals must be jumped for about 20 seconds before the code will begin to flash. Count the number of short flashes starting from the long flash. Include the long flash as a count. Sometimes the first count sequence will be short. However, subsequent flashes will be accurate. If there is more than one failure, only the first recognized code will be retained and flashed.

DTC's 6, 9 and 10 will only turn the "BRAKE" lamp on while the fault exists. These are soft codes faults and can only be read with the Tech 1 scan tool.
Do not jump terminals "A" to "H" if the "BRAKE" lamp is not on. Jumping the terminals with the "BRAKE" lamp off will set a false DTC 9. This will turn the "BRAKE" lamp on and disable the antilock system.
