This is the service engine light. what it is telling you is that your having an issue somewhere in the emmision control system or fuel system. The most common issue is the oxygen sensor located in the exhaust before the cat converter or your gas cap is not tight. There are other reasons and you just need to get the code read from your cars computer. Auto zone pulls codes for free, once the get the code from the computer that will tell you what needs to be done. Usually nothing major.

Sometimes the engine icon was used to tell you things like, washer fluid low or gas cap is bad. normaly if its a seriouse issue, it will flash. you can go to about any auto parts store and they will do a scan on it for you. usually free.

Heater light flashing on 1997 vitara jeep not start


what country, which engine>? G16?
where is this light. try to be exact, (on the HVAC controls)
or in the dash speedo cluster?
and we'd need to know if it has an icon, ?
better post , a real photo of lamp.
did you overheat the engine (coolant gauge needle , on H)

as the dash lamps vary by every country a vitara is sold.
the operators guide (glovebox) is the way to know what a lamp means. (warnings) and is unique to your country! fact !

i see UK cars (we are USA here) have CAT overheat icons.
(we dont have that here)
and means just that. (engine too rich and misfiring or rich and exhaust cracks, sucking air ) causing CAT to OVERHEAT.

no start. lets work that now.
ok, key on, CEL glows. (check engine light ) must glow
does it.
does engine crank? fast?
if yes, is the IMMOblizer lamp (dash) happy? (oper, guide again)
if cel on , Immo happy
then it cranks fast ,do you have spark to all cylinders of unstated size engine?

our cars the USA OBD2 scan tools all work in 1997
but in say UK not. so ... that to changes diagnosis BIG TIME>.

Light is coming on on dashboard. Not sure if this is for the engine, as I can not locate my owner's manual.


The light will have an icon too, if the icon shows square shape rectangle with + and - symbol then its for battery, ((!)) is for hand brake and a small engine shape is for engine. You can find the images of these icon on Google as they are almost same on all cars. PS: Don't drive the car when these lights come up on dash and show your car to a good mechanic immediately.

Check engine dash icon suddenly came on. Car has


A lot of diffrerent things can cause the check engine icon to come on.
Good idea to have the 2006 ION scanned by a technician with their equipment to pinpoint the problem.

I would not say anything else until more data is gathered.

Good luck on this one.

Dash icon in chevy balzer 2000


It is a Check Engine Light, meaning youe ECM (Computer) in your car has found a fault (Trouble Code) with a component or sensor in your engine. You will need a OBD II Diagnostic Scanner to be hooked up to your Diagnostic Port located inside your vehicle under the driver's side footwell to scan the stored codes so that your mechanic can determine a solution to the car's problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can hook up a scanner and read your trouble code for free so you have an idea what is wrong with your vehicle. You can click on the link below for more detailed information.

My dash displays two icons one red airbag seatbealt straped


the red one i belive is your seatbelt warning..... put on your seatbelt it should go out... the yellow may be the check engine light.... stop in at your local autozone and have them read the codes (free) and write down what they are and post them here.. they will probably tell you too what the problem might be ... i'll have a look for the user manual too.
