I hope you have read your owners manual,which no one seems to have,and know why different lights come on the dash!
Iam guessing you know that, as soon as a light comes on,that a fault has been detected. Most people could care less.
You have to plug a code reader or scanner into the connector under the dash,below your ign key.
Give me the code and I'll help you out.
I have a 2004 LS and $600.00 worth of manuals and wiring diagrams,Emissions also.

Why is the Emission system needs service indicator light on? What does it need.

The most common problem is a leak in the evap system which vents the fumes in the gas tank to the vapor canister.
Sometimes its a loose or faulty gas cap.

What does it mean when the emissions warning light is on?

Any dash light that is on after the motor starts,
is system fault, that has to be checked for codes
& then component tested.
Most likely a failed Evap System part or vacuum leak
You read your owners manual didn't you?

My name Tommy V, I have a 2001 Toyota Echo, the CK engine light was on, went to a car parts store used their code reader, code was PO441 Evaporative emission control -System incorrect, purge flow. I used...

The EVAP cannister is part of the emissions system. Excess exhaust runs thru it-purge flow is when it is released. Check all the vacuum lines going to it. I don't you will find a parts listing for a purge flow valve or vent or solenoid. Your light will probably come on again shortly.

Ck engine light

The check engine light comes on when the computer detects a problem in the emission control system . It covers a lot of input sensors and actuators.

In order to know for certain what caused the check engine light to come on, take your vehicle to AutoZone to have your On board computer scanned for trouble codes.

They provide this service free of charge.

Good Luck
