WHAT IS THE SYMBOL LIGHT OF A MOTOR WITH AN ARROW POINTING DOWNWARD? WHAT DOES IT MEAN? ALSO WHAT IS THE CAR SYMBOL WITH A LOCK SYMBOL ON IT AS WELL? AND ALSO WHAT DOES THAT REPRESENT?


if your car has a standard transmission then the icon of the engine that has arrow pointing down might be an indicator that you need to down shift , as

the other symbol ive seen only once before it was on a Bmw and was a symbol for the valet mode , it down tunes the engine and inhibits all the luxury features (like radio) for just the valet to park your car , its possible these two icons are related

Hey Elle, did you ever work out what it is? I have the same problem, and I don't have a service manual. I can't find it online, and the symbol doesn't appear in the Corolla manual. I've never seen anything like it.

My 2005 Grand Prix has no heat and my gas mileage is awful. would changing thermostat fix problem. also at night not sure if this has anything to do with problem only my blue temperature arrows light...


A FAULTY THERMOSTAT STUCK OPEN WILL EFFECT GAS MILEAGE AND CAUSE POOR OR NO HEAT CONDITIONS.THERMOSTAT NOT A HARD JOB TO FIX.ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS DRAIN OUT SOME OF THE COOLANT IN A DRAIN PAN.DRAIN COOLANT LEVEL BELOW THERMOSTAT.IF YOU HAVE 3.8L ENGINE THERMOSTAT HOUSING ON TOP INTAKE MANIFOLD.IF YOU HAVE 5.3L ENGINE FOLLOW TOP RADIATOR HOSE IT WILL LEAD YOU TO THERMOSTAT HOUSING.REMOVE HOUSING THERMOSTAT INSIDE THE HOUSING.IF YOU HAVE WATER INLET ANDTHERMOSTAT IN ONE COMPLETE UNIT OR HOUSING YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE WATER INLET HOUSING WITH NEW THERMOSTAT.THIS TYPE UNIT WILL HAVE LONG PIPE WITH BYPASS PIPE WITH WATER INLET WITH THERMOSTAT. ONCE YOU REPLACE THERMOSTAT.IF YOUR RED ARROWS OFF AND HEAT STILL DONT WORK THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT.WITH NEW THERMOSTAT AND PRESSURE CAP.MAKE SURE GET COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT.SEE HOW HEAT WORKS.IF NOT YOU HAVE A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM AT AC AND HEATER CONTROL SWITCH.

"!" Indicator light on 2008 Chev Trailblazer


If the ! symbol you saw is inside a circle enclosed in parentheses like (O), and usually red in color, that's for your brake fluid. Check it out, maybe its low on fluid. If it is, check for fluid leaks or worn brakepads. Usually the ! symbol coincides with the P symbol and also red in color. When the park brake is engaged, both these symbols appear together. If you release the park brake, both indicators should turn off under normal conditions, otherwise either of the two or both will stay on when there is insufficient fluid or there's a parking brake circuit fault. Brakes are very important, so give proper attention and solution if ever these indicators lightb up when they shoud not.
If the ! symbol is very bold and inside a half drawn flat tire, and yellow in color, thats the tire pressure monitor indicator. Check and balance all four tire pressures to the correct specification.
Okay, sir? have a safe trip. : )

What is the red thermometer symbol?


On my daughter 2000 beetle with 2.0 engine, the blue thermometer light comes on solid when you first crank it up because the coolant/engine is below operating temp. I have seen the red thermometer blink when the coolant is low.

My 2001 chevy malibu has a symbol on the dash board of a red square with an arrow pointing down towards water. what does that mean?


The indicator is for low coolant level. Fill the reservoir and check the radiator for proper levels. Check for leakage at the hoses and at the water pump.

What does the low light indicator mean


this symbol usually indicates that the radiator is low on coolant. on some cars a similar light means low washer fluid. so check both of them.

this light is a warnning light which indicates that your coolant reservoir is low. there is a plastic tank in your engine that showes the indicator level on its side .make sure the engine is cold and open the cap and add coolant if needed. the light should go off.if not let me know.
