The instrument panel check light is asking you to take the vehicle to have a scan carried....The usual reason is that a fault has developed and needs attention....Regards Johngee10

What does check engine light mean


You'll need to check your owner's manual if you have one since the light coming on could mean quite a few things. Depending on the age of the car, you could take it to a parts store and see if they will check for a computer code that may tell you what the problem is. Call several stores and see if they provide that service for free.
In the meantime, check the oil and transmission fluid levels to see if there is a problem that you can solve easily. the light coming on does not mean that you have a costly fix coming up, but you avoid that by taking care of the problem as soon as you can.

What does the "check gauges"


Your check gauges light can mean many things. Most of the time if the light comes on it means that one of the dash gauges is not within its recommend safe zone. Check all of your gauges and make sure they are all in the safe zone. If everything is in the safe zone then you may have other electrical problems which will only be able to be solved with the help of an automotive computer.
I hope this helps you out.

My car cuts out while driving. I drawing of a engine of sorts comes up on the dash board. It happens about 2 a day. If


That drawing you see of an engine is called the check engine light. When that light comes on, it means that it has detected an issue with your car. I flashing check engine light means the engine is misfiring and running it will cause further damage. A solid check engine light can mean anything from a bad fuel pump to a bad transmission. Bring your car to a place like Autozone and they'll scan the onboard computer for free. After the scan, they'll retrieve the code(s) that will narrow down what the issue is...
