You can get an owner's manual here for free The light you are seeing is the Low Coolant Light. Check the coolant level in the overflow reservoir and fill it up with a 50/50 mixture of distilled water and Dexcool. If the reservoir is empty then remove the radiator cap and also fill the radiator. If it is very low then you have a leak somewhere. If you are seeing white smoke they the engine has a blown head gasket which will destroy the engine if not repaired ASAP. Stop driving the car until you service it.

Hello deezeesmeyo
Check fuse# 42 a 20amp fuse in the fuse block located under the hood on the right side of the engine compartment. If the fuse is ok, check the stoplight switch located under the left side of the
dash on the brake peddle bracket. Hope this is helpful.

I have a warning light showing up sometimes. It is a red rectangle with a arrow pointing down within the box and two humps at the bottom of the box. What does that mean?

That would be the low coolant light. Check the coolant reservoir with the engine cold. If the coolant is red or orange add "dexcool" extended life coolant. If the coolant is green than adding the regular green coolant is fine. The two different coolants should not be mixed.

Have you noticed any puddles under the car?

since both the manual and aotomatic trrans have OD which do you have/ f it is a auto trans then this light is on to indicate a problem in the OD control circuit, most likely the solenoid for OD.

It has a built in code reader. It's the little black box by the drivers side hood hing. It has 6 sockets , a wire attached to it that you plug into them , and a button. Turn key on ,don't start, plug the wire into 2 and push button 2 - 3 seconds , little red next to button should light as long as button pushed.Release button , light will blink a 3 digit code . Count carefully. Repeat process again until codes repeat. # 2 socket is ignition # 6 is Fuel injection. Code 1 1 1 means system OK. To reset FI pull the engine control / fuel pump fuse . Think it's 6 on your car. Code meanings can be found on line ( auto X ray)

Hi am a mechanic working mannually but now that the world is computerise, and most vehicle are computer controlled, i would like to obtain OBD11 scan tool, how can get one?

Hi what i did was to lose all the plugs and clean the carbon deposit on it,and put it back,after i started the car the problem of misfiring is gone, but the check engine light is on.
i still use my initiative to off it without using any sacn tool'

1. I off the engine and remove the battery head,and refix it i on the ignation only to see the dash board light are on then i went to the front and remove the battery and spark it for about two to three times,then i off the ignation and put back the battery terminal and tied it, the check engine light is gone, and my car is ok now. it is a way of refreshing the memory of the brain box manually.
