Have you checked the coolant level, if so the temperature sensor may be defective.

Engine - dash warning lights

Well, this tip is going to be long and on-going as I cannot sit at a computer long enough to do it in one hit, so keep chcking back or asking for more and I will keep on adding to it, until I run out OR people lose interest...ha ha ha.

I am posting this tip to assist those people coming into the forums waiting day and night for that response.....this is simply a reference point for those people who have lost/misplaced their owners manual and a light comes on the dash and they dont not know what it is.

Now, all of these lights are put there by the manufacturer to aid in telling you that there is a problem. We should all pay attention and take npotice, and fix as soon as possible to etend the life of our vehicles.

Some of these can be prevented from coming on, and some happen due to a long period of neglect, or simply because.......but there is always a reason.....I might add further tips and explain what could go wrong on each of these lights, but now, is just a simple summary and picture of what you MIGHT see.

1. Check Engine light

2. Battery (charge) light

3. Oil Pressure light

4. Brake warning light


5. Brake pad wear light

6. ABS (Anti-lock Brake System ) light

7. Water (Coolant) Temperature light

8. Low Fuel Warning light


Many more to come.............stay tuned

Peugeot 106 1.0 litre, temperature warning light on dash comes on one or two minutes after starting engine, sometimes stays on or intermittently goes off and on whilst driving. Also the radiator cooling...

hi, if the collant level is ok and the car isnt over heating then check the heater works in the car and make sure it gives of heat when hot is selected if it dont then the chances are the thermostat has gone and needs replacing.

If on the other hand you have heat then the chances are its just a faulty temp sensot these are cheap to buy and easy to replace.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It beeps and there is no lights on the dash

make sure your air bag light is operating. if the airbag light is burnt out on the instrument cluster, it will beep an audible tone to let you know there is a problem since there is no working warning light. turn key on (but dont start vehicle) and see if the air bag light comes on and shuts off (its called "prove-out") if it does not come on at all, chances are... the light for air bag warning on cluster is burnt out

Orange light that comes up in the middle of the dash board.

This warning light indicates a problem with the rear lights (Brake lights, Reverse lights, Number plate light)... Normally it is set off by a bulb that needs to be replaced but it has been documented that using incorrect Watt rated bulbs can also trigger the warning light. It has also been noticed that faulty wiring may trigger the it too.
