You can check them with a "OBD2" diagnostic scanner. Once you find out what is wrong, You can turn the light off via the scanner. If you have an Auto Zone store near you, the have a tool loan program. All you have to do is leave a deposit and when you return the scanner they will give all your money back. Hope this helps.

What do dashboard lights mean


you meant warning lamps. right? not parking lamps.
every year they add more. my newer car has like 100.
each maker uses different lamps. (icons.)
making generic answers impossible ,except the obvious.
CEL , check engine light, or SES. service engine soon.
Oil lamp... low oil pressure do not run engine.
charge lamp, battery will die soon (go discharged and car stalls)

you lost the operators guide, all lamps are explained in every car made in the glove box manual.
get one.

or use this random page.

this is a grand attempt at the generic, its very good.

Your vehicle requires to go to a service center and have the computer reset, it is just a service interval reminder warning usually based on your mileage and nothing to be alarmed about in most cases..

An orange warning light shaped like an engine has come on what does it mean


Engine warning light

eng_man_light_72.jpg Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter

Warning light on my car's dash board


hi, this warning light is either telling you the water level is low or the temp is to high.
If this light comes on as soon as the ignition is switched on then its more than likely low water level or it could be that the sensor itself as give up working, these are not that expensive to buy but check your water level first and top up if needed.
If the light comes on after you have been driving for a while then this is telling you it is getting to hot which usually means the thermostat needs replacing.
Any of these problem shouldnt cost to much to repair as their are plenty of parts available so will be cheap and easy to get.

Hope this is some help to you if you have any problems or questions then give me a shout back.

As for driving 300 miles then if the light comes on as soon as you start the car then you should be ok but if it comes on after the car has been driven then it could over heat and this can cause the head gasket to blow and then this mean very expensive repair. So if this is the case then when the light comes on its best you switch of and rest for 30min to get the temperature down. If the lights on as soon as you start the car then you should find you will be ok.
