Pwr is normal
is it auto if it is there is a pwr button some were to turn it off
if u did turn it off the button is stuffed if the ligt stays on

pwr makes the car rev higher to get a quicker start off and when power is off it makes it rev lower and change though the gears normal
if it stays on you will waste lots of fuel

Yellow/Orange engine light on the dashboard what is the problem?T


Toyota Yaris engine warning light - this light will stay illuminated if there is a malfunction within the engine after start up - we would advise you to use the Toyota i905 iCarsoft kit to diagnose the engine problem, the kit will also clear the codes & reset the dashboard light. You might need to replace your MAF sensor because of this warning light, if so you should visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk for a replacement.

I have a 94 mercury villager. My back yellow blinker lights come on whenever I turn on my headlights. They just stay on like running lights. I've had cops stop me thinking I had my emergency lights o


Hi Wendilynn
This will depend on what country you are from and where the car is from also as in the USA the blinker lights are running lights that stay on i do not think you can get red covers for them as then you will have red blinkers and they should be orange, the only way i can think of a work around is, disconnect the wires for the blinkers ( do not know if yours are red or not you did not say ) and swap the wires with the proper blinkers, if however the orange blinker lights that are staying on are your proper blinkers then you should have a permanent live wire going to them, you will have to remove this permanent live wire from them and if they do not have a live feed have an auto electrician fit some wires from the flasher unit to them and that should solve the problem hope you understand what i mean

We have a yellow symbol which flashes on dashboard its like a tall upside down j with a yellow background can anyone help me with this it flashes and then goes out but sometimes stays on longer the...


Hi Jackie ,
I will say that , it is a MIL ( malfunction indicator light ) and since it is not permanent , it may just be problem of loose coupler or relay . Please open the hood of the car and check all the terminals of electrical wiring and also check fuse box and refit all the relays.
See of this help and may please revert again , if possible please take a picture of the light symbol and send.
Regards,
Vijay

Light with "check" has come up?


It means that the car it's having a problem and it's giving a troublecode to be analysed easier.

2005 Chevy Impala wont start


The most common cause of this problem on the Impalas is their @$!@ security system called Passlock or Passlock II. It is very sensitive and senses an intrusion a lot of times even when there is not one. When it does it locks down the fuel injectors. You can leave the key in the ignition in the on position and wait 10 minutes for it to re-set but it tends to do this 4-5 times a month at a minimum. The way to permanently solve this is to disable this portion of the system.
You will need to take the dash off ( it is not as hard as it seems) It is held in place with a variety of bolts, screws, and clips. You can do a web search for dash removal to try and find the exact configuration. Once the dash is out under the steering column there is a metal plate. It needs to come out also (held in place by a few bolts. Once this is removed you will have clear access to the underneath part of the steering column. Coming up the steering column you will see (3) wires grouped together. (Yellow, Black, and White). They will either be tied or taped together. The only one you need to concern yourself with is the yellow one. This is the most important step. (1) Start the car! (2) While the car is started snip the yellow wire, making sure it does not contact any metal. (3) using electrical tape or something similar cap off the ends and tie it off if you wish. (4) Turn off the car, put the plate back on, the dash back together and problem solved!. The yellow or orange security light will stay permanently illuminated, but it is not a problem. I did this on my Impala which I inherited 10 months ago and have never had this problem again. You can take the bulb out of the instrument cluster to for the security light but it is a lot of trouble and not worth the effort. Hope this helps..

Constant light on dashboard


My '01 TDI had the same issue and apparently it was a switch gone bad behind the horn and airbag. . . so no idea if the airbag would have worked had I been in an accident. Definately worth going to VW and having it looked at though. Better safe than sorry.

Security light comes on and car doesn't want to start sometimes.


Disable the passlock system permanently. The other functions will still work just fine. The passlock system for some mystery reason sometimes senses an intrusion even if there is not one and locks down the fuel injectors. Underneath the steering column there is a metal plate held in place with a few bolts. It needs to come out. In order to do so you may have to remove some dash components but it is not as hard as it seems. Once the plate is removed running up the steering column there will be (3) wires bundled or tied together. These are the wires for the passlock system (Yellow + Black - and White neutral) It is the only group of 3 configured like this. START the car and while the car is running snip the YELLOW wire ONLY! and tape off the ends. Put everything back together and live better knowing your car will now start each and every time. The Yellow or Orange security light will stay on permanently but this will not cause any other problems.
