If it comes on while driving down the road or while the engine is running, you may have low oil pressure due to lack of oil.Also if oil filter is cloged due to not changing the oil it will reduce oil pressure and cause light to come on. if checked and this is not it then it will be the oil sending unit and since you have a light, be shure to tell your parts house that you have a light and not a gauge.

Why does my darango shut off while driving?


If it's an exclamation point inside a triangle, it's called a master warning symbol. This is the Master Warning Light symbol. If this light is on, there will likely be text displayed as well on the instrument panel, or another warning light. Look for text in particular. It could very well point out something as serious as low oil pressure. If the engine is not running, you can't very well check your gauges, but you may have lost all oil pressure or overheated the engine. Recommend you consult a mechanic familiar with your model.

It's your oil sensor telling you that either you have low oil or you're getting low oil pressure.

Red symbol (!) lit up on panel on ford fiesta flight 2001. What does this mean?


Hi,
The red symbol means lubricant/oil is less than normal level.
Better check the level of your oil and add some until it reaches the maximum level.
Next time you put on some petrol/gasoline, ask the station attendant to check your oil level and ask him to add some oil.
Hope that helps!

It's your oil light.

Check your oil light as it's most likely low. Other causes can be a bad sensor, or there's a pressure leak

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.

Oil light comes on


Yellow oil can lit means you need to top up the oil. Red oil can means you have lost oil pressure.
