This is the check engine light, it means the electronic engine control system has developed a problem, most times there is no symptom of anything wrong just the light, have the system tested as wehnever the light is on the computer stores a trouble code for the sytem where the problem is, there are over 200 such "Fault" codes.

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

1993 ecilpse Amber warning light lite on dash


This light represents the coolant level. If your coolant level sensor detects a lack of coolant, it will come on. I would advise filling your car to the proper level and also have a mechanic inspect your cooling system to find out why your coolant level dropped.

Good luck!

How to change bulb in bumpers on volvo v40


The amber lights in the bumper are a complete unit, (bulb cannot be removed without some or all of the amber light assembly) so unfortunatey you will have to go to your Volvo spare parts store & pick one up - front & back are different, as are left & right - check it. I paid €25 for a unit in Ireland.

Changing is a case of unscrewing as much of the bumper as you need to access it and clipping it out. It takes quite a bit of force to clip the new unit back.

Unfortunately I can't help about dash bulb.
