That is your Check engine light or also known as a service engine soon light, that means there is a code set in the computer. Did you get gas recently? If you did it may mean you left the gas cap loose. when reinstalling gas cap after fueling make sure it is threaded in correctly and you hear at least 3 clicks when tight. If not you can go to your local Autozone,Advance Auto Parts,or local mechanic to have the code pulled and diagnoised.

It can mean many things. that light means that something is not right with your engine. i can describe you many reasons why that light is on.

normaly if you get that light you should go to your mechanicien. if your car runs well, it might just be a dump thing like changing the oil, or changing the engine band, or changing the engine ingniters and so on...

The best way to find it is go and get the new IAC Valve so you know exactly what it looks like ..While at the parts store get a small tube of die electric lube and safety glasses.make sure engine is cold...Set park brake and raise hood..Disconnect negative battery cable for safety and because if you unplug IAC Valve it will cause a dash trouble light to come on if battery is connected...So..Disconnect battery..Look at the top of the engine on or behind throttle body..You may have to remove air filter..Look around top center and you should see the valve...Carefully disconnect Valve wiring connector..Remove Valve..Inspect housing for any damage or contamination..Clean with shop towel if needed...Use lube that was purchased and lube o-ring on valve..Install valve and snug the screws tight..DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN..Lube connector terminals and reconnect wiring..Install battery negative cable that was removed ..Don't OVERTIGHTEN ..Just tight enough where you can't twist it off...Start engine and test drive.....complete..
