SOURCE: Indicator lamp

Are u referring to the check engine or service engine light? If that's it, bring it to a auto parts store, most will check for trouble codes as a free service. They will plug a scan tool into a computer port under the dash of the car, the scanner will 'read' any codes that are stored in the car's computer. Write down the code #'s, and ask what they mean and what they recommend u do to fix the problem. If u have any further questions, u can post them here w/ the codes. After the problem is corrected, the scan tool can be used to turn off the warning light. Let me know how u make out.

SOURCE: Malfunction Indicator Lamp

Take your car to your local autoparts store and have them pull the codes - this is free at most stores. Post the codes when you're done. This can be caused by anything - even as simple as not tightening your gas cap (you should hear the clicks - it doesn't damage the cap).

SOURCE: malfunction indicator lamp in my toyota corolla is on how i fix?

The check engine light also called the malfunction indicator comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

2005 toyota camry indicator lamp came on while driving. What does this mean and would it be expensive to fix.


What indicator lamp? There are several. ABS, TRACTION CONTROL, BRAKE LIGHT, AIRBAG LIGHT, SEAT BELT LIGHT, MAINTENANCE LIGHT, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, OIL LIGHT, ETC.

most of these will store codes when they turn on. All of those except the check engine light will require a high end scan tool to retrieve the codes. The check engine light codes can be retrieved by an OBDII code reader. You can purchase them for under $100 or you can swing buy your local parts store. Often they will pull codes for free.

Once you know the codes you'll have a better idea of what needs to be done.

WHAT DOES THE LIGHT ''CHECK'' MEANS


The CHECK engine light means Malfunction Indication Lamp (MIL). It is a yellow colored indicator which always keep the driver of the car informed about the performance of the engine sensors and the Electronic Control Module (ECM). It is always in the OFF state when the engine is running. If it becomes on while the engine is running it become necessary to get the car be checked and scanned for any one or more problems which have occurred in the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system.

My Toyota Crolla 98 cars' Malfunction indicatore lamp is on, I don't know what that means and how to reset it. I need your help plz


It simply means there might be an issue you need to resolve but not necessarily a problem.

Take it for a scan is the best advice but you could also remove your battery terminal for 5 minutes and replace back.

Rate this please.

My cars' Malfunction indicatore lamp is on.?


Malfunction indicator light is the same as Check engine or Service engine soon. It only tells you that your vehicle needs a checkup but does not mean there is a big problem.

Rate this.

Air conditioner on all the time, indicator lamp off


Hi. The indicator lamp might be in the need of a replacement, or the a/c switch is not working, creating a peermament short. Usually a replacement of the switch will get rid of this problem.
