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.

What does this idiot light mean?

They may be an indication of traction control. Look around the dash to see if you have a button for it. Usually, Toyota mounts them down low, almost on the underside of the dash. I'm not sure if traction control was available on the '99's, but that might be it.

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!!

Warning Light

That exclamation light on the dash board indicates low tire pressure. Check the air in all your tires and make sure they are all filled to proper levels and it should turn off.
