    I have a light on, that stays on, in the far lower/right corner of my dash. Looks like a square with bump on top and arrow pointing down. Checked and added any fluids needed. Water level is fine and car does not overheat. What does this mean?????

My car driving it and all of a sudden it started jerking and then all the lights on the dash started blinking, then it went away, and then a little bit later it happened again


There are shops that can check the electrical system. It might be the alternator. You need to find a mechanic to do some measurements.

DASH AND RADIO LIGHT UP AFTER DRIVING A FEW


This can be very bad. First thing is to check the water level in the battery immediately. Second is to get a new voltage regulator. On your car I believe the regulator is internal to the alternator.

Check DCL keeps lighting up on dash


Surely you have decades of experience with check lights on your dash,
of any number of vehicles

They have been on all vehilces in north america buy govt emission
mandates since 1981,some 30 years

As usual, you have a possible system fault or failure,that should not
be a suprise , eg: your car needs repair,possibly,at least check it out

You can not & do not want to make the light on the dash go away
So goes the info stored to find the faults

Just go to a repair shop

There is a funny smell inside the car and outside after I get out. It lingers in the air for several feet. It leaves a metallic taste in my mouth for several minutes. Do you know what it could be?


hi John...this could be a few things, but it sounds like either, you have a leaking water system and what you can smell and taste is the anti freeze, does is also taste a bit sweet as well?, the other thing could be the clutch ( if manual gears ) slipping, and burning, but you would notice the driving experience starting to go slower, so i would say the heater matrix inside the car ( the heater radiator ) may be leaking , feel the carpets around the bottom of the dashboard where your feet go, and the sides of where the centre console is under the dash this is normally a give away sign, and check your fluids in the expansion bottle to see if you have lost any water....hope this helps

Car turns over does'nt start right away, 1994 plymouth voyager


Get those check engine light codes read. They should give a big clue that could save lots of time. Otherwise we are just sitting here guessing. The list is very long for things that can cause those symptoms.

The engine icon on the dash board lights up, not blinking and does not go away. Jetta 2004 TDI Does it mean I cannot drive the car at all?


Hi,
The answer to that question will be in your users manual, but you will need to get the fault codes read. The engine is computer controlled, and it stores it's recorded faults. So the only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.
Hope this helps a bit, D
