It is the equivalent of the service engine soon. This usually comes on at a spicified mileage to try to get you in to the shop for a service fleecing! If it is a digital dash, press the odometer trip reset button and turn on the ignition. DO NOT START THE CAR. Hold the button for ten-fifteen seconds and shut the ignition off. Release the trip button and start the car. The light should be off. If it is off and comes back on you may need service.

To confirm my solution read thru' the manual. It may be in there. Not likely though.

Good Luck

Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

Warning engine light stays on 20013 GMC pick-up


It could be your alternator is dying and sending low voltage to to fuel pump on Or you may even have a short in harness. I would get it looked at but in my opinion I would say it's voltage related.

Why does my traction off light come on?


You either have a problem with your engine control system, the traction control system, or you are not in the correct gear. See the explaination below. This is from the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner's Manual.

TRAC-OFF LIGHT

... If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever

to FIRST (1) or SECOND (2), the warning light will

come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,

move the shift lever back to a position other than

FIRST (1) or SECOND (2). The warning light

should go off. (See "Enhanced Traction System"

in the Index for more information.)

 The warning light will come on when you set your

parking brake with the engine running, and it will

stay on if your parking brake doesn't release fully.

If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other

than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning

light stays on after your parking brake is fully

released, it means there's a problem with the system.

 If the traction control system is affected by an

engine-related problem, the system will turn off

and the warning light will come on.

If the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes

on and stays on for an extended period of time when the

transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST
(1) or SECOND (2) your vehicle needs service.

Well yesturday night coming from work my 1997 cadillac deville dashboard said TRANSMISSION HOT what can i do prevent this again? also my TRACTION CONTROL AND THE ABS SYSTEM lights are On and never turn...


I would open with a visit to a transmission shop. on a car that old you are looking at a rebuild which may well cost more than the car is worth. things, just like people, wear out and break down with age and use. after the transmission is rebuilt you are going to need an engine diagnostic to find out what is making the service engine light stay on. In the olden days cars just broke down with no warning, the silly thought behind the warning lights was that folks would get the cars seen to if they had advance warning of a coming failure. however the sad truth is that the lights just stay on warning of failure until the failure ad then the owner wonders why.

1997 camry all warning lights on for a while


Just tell them of the smell. They will start by checking all fluids to see if any are low. And do a visual inspection to look for stains or whatever the smell was from. Do you know what a bad catalytic converter smells like? It is described as sulfurous, like rotten eggs smell. This part is in the exhaust piping, and used to clean pollutants from the exhaust.
Now about those warning lights in your dash: those red lights are supposed to always come on when the key is turned to on and then to start. They turn on with key on, and then soon as engine starts (or right after-within a couple of seconds) the warning lights should all turn off. So I'm not sure if you just hadn't noticed them before, or what. Do they seem to stay on for an extended period of time? The only reason a red light would stay on after engine starts, would be a warning that something not right. (Like if the "dripping oil" light would stay on, that is a danger, cause that is your engine oil pressure. If that light stays on, you lost oil pressure, and meaning shut engine off immediately before damage occurs.)
So the warning lights come on as a visual check that those bulbs are good, just in case a warning is needed. Then engine starts and all warning lights should go off. See? Good luck, probably not a big problem, but good you check it out.
