This is also known as the service engine soon light. This light turns on when the ECU (engine computer) senses a problem. If it stays on the computer has logged a trouble code which will tell you or your mechanic where the root of the problem started. Unfortunately you will need a code reader to retrieve the code and also to turn the light off. This could be a problem with one of your engine control sensors, or more commonly it could be a problem with your emission control system (something as simple as your gas cap not being on tight enough can turn this light on). Hope this helps!

Your check engine light means a code has been tripped on your engine management computer. There are hundreds of things that trip this light, some as simple as a loose gas cap. You can go to your local auto parts store, such as Auto Zone, and they will usually read the code and tell you what caused it for Free. Then you can decide where to go from there!

Light a dashboard has come up ... it looks like an orange engine what does this mean.

It's a ¨Check engine light¨. It could mean a lot of different things, a code scanner has to be plugged in in order to find out what the issue is, could be a bad sensor or wiring, or a lot of different things.

What does it mean when the dashboard indicator

that is your 'check engine' light.if it stays on, one or more sensors on your engine has sent a 'trouble code' to the on-board computer.a diagnostic code reader needs to be connected to it to determine the cause.

One of the lights on the dashboard wont go off i dont know what this light means its not the oil or battery light could you help please my car is a nissan bluebird

Does it look like this?


If so, that's your Check Engine Light. It means there's a problem somewhere that your car's computer is detecting. Unlike the oil and battery lights, the Check Engine Light can come on for many different problems. You should have it looked at by a pro because there's not really any other way to determine exactly what's wrong.

Red light on dashboard on Suzuki Escudo (Vitara)

It could mean that some emission-control device has failed or is due for replacment. Common items would be oxygen sensor (not too expensive) and catalytic convertor (pretty expensive).
