What does it mean when the EMC dash light goes on and off. We have only just purchased this car, but it does not have a manual. Does EMC
stand for engine management system?

We have the same issue. Have taken it to a mechanic - unfortunately they can't diagnose the problem unless the warning is being triggered at the time, We have the issue when the outside temperature is quite warm - the car feels like it runs thinner when the warnign is on. But its been doing it for 5 years (sice we bought it). We ease of on the accelerator, light goes off...

In my pulsar 89, the ECM light comes on sporadically, its been checked and we're pretty sure it doesnt mean anything, there's a fault somewhere in the wiring or something. The car still runs fine!
And yeah, thats what it says in my manual.

When stepping on break light goes on in dash board

Sounds like you have a short in the brake light circuit. Get a professional to look at it as this may indicate something more than a nuisance.

My digital dash & emc panel not working. whats the problem?

The digital dash in this model is really a computer display, these are full of logic chips and hundreds of other parts, they do fail and then the cluster blanks out, it is fairly common on this model. You will need to pull the clutter out of the car and send it in to one of the many GM licensed repair facilities that rebuild these dash clusters. The one I use is called "Speedotach" they are a nation wide firm.

I have a mercedes c200 komprosser. wat is the use of s and w switch next to the gear shifter. And wat is the use of emc switch on the dash board. thanks. hope you will respond soon.

It has to do with the transmission. The 'S' stands for standard and 'W' winter.

In 'S' mode, the transmission starts out in 1st gear normally, but when you select

In 'W' mode, the transmission will start out in 2nd gear, to help reduce wheel spin/slip on slippery surfaces.

You failed to mention what model so I'll give my best shot. On most models on right side (passenger side is a fuel reset switch mounted on firewall) Before attempting to start - press rubber button on top. Uf that doesn't work - have them download this (Rave manuals - River Bible) -

Dash warning light not found in manual - hot to turn it off

The flashing key-inside-a-car means the anti-theft system is working properly. On page 84 of the 2009 Prius owners manual, the explanation indicates that a flashing key-inside-a-car is normal, and is desired. It should extinguish when the automobile is operating. It may be distracting, but it's a good thing!!
