Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The ECT PWR light is on because someone has inadvertantly bumped the switch. Look on the console, by the shifter, or on the dash for a switch labeled ECT. Turn it off, and the light will go out.

The ECT PWR mode, when activated, increases the time that the transmission shifts up thru the gears. Without the mode selected, the first shift would be at 18-20 mph. With the mode selected, the first shift would be 20-22 mph. This mode basically allows the shift to occur later, and is normally used when you are towing something, or if you have a large load of cargo in the car.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. Have a great day.

I have a toyota cellica1995 auto coupe (import) no handbook. green Warning light on dash, Ect-S power, what does this mean. Have just changed the alternator any reference to this? cheers mark


Easy one. You pressed (or someone pressed) the ECT button located near the shifter, in the console, or on the shifter itself. It changed the shift pattern of the transmission to a higher shift point for more performance (but uses more gas). Look for the switch and with the engine running push it until the light goes off.

A green light came on "ECT PWR", what does that mean?


It means Electronically Controlled Transmission.

Basically in the older models there is an option to turn ECT on which allows for better acceleration as it's controlled electronically.

Hope help with this.

Green light ext pwr


The ECT/power light is controlled by the ECT switch on the console. WHat it does is stretches the shift point from 1-2 and 2-3 when you are carrying a large load, or towing something. For maximum fuel economy, the light should be switched off.
