The Orange lamp should be a picture or shaped like something. If it looks like an engine then the computer has sensed one of the vehicle systems is not functioning properly. Your best bet is to have the vehicle scanned with a scantool to obtain the fault codes. Stores like autozone scan for free. What you need is someone to repair the problem once you find out what it is. Usually it isn't anything too serious, so not to panic. Sometimes it's just a system hiccup like a miss or the like. No major components like the whole engine or transmission. Good Luck and thank you for seeking answers on Fix-ya. _Ned_

What does 'check' warning light on instrument panel mean on daewoo tacuma

no, it's not the transmission. No monitors for that. It sounds like your check engine light.
When your engine computer detects a problem with it's engine management controls, or when an emissions problem is detected, the computer will turn your check engine light and store a code or codes describing the problem.
Autozone will scan your codes for free. Then you'll know if the light means a major problem (fix right away) or a minor problem that needs attention. When it's fixed, the light will stay off.
You won't know what that light means until you get the codes read. Good luck.

I have 2006 GMC Sierra SLE 4WD 5.3 liter and my engine light comes on giving me the code PO449 Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/ Solenoid Circuit Malfuction. What could cause this code to...

There is a solenoid that open and closes with 12 volts, usually located close to the fuel filler tube area. This open to allow you to fill your tank, then closes after some inputs for the computer are satisfied, and then a pressure sensor verifies the system is working. First, make sure the cgas cap is tight, and if the light doesn't go away in a couple days of normal driving, get the solenoid checked.

What does an orange engine outline light on the

It can mean many things. Problem is, its always stupid stuff like exhaust leak, fuel cap, o2 sensor etc. As a 26 yr Dodge mechanic, its a way for people to keep bring in thier car to keep dealershiips in business for service calls. As long as the car runs fine, dont waste your money on getting codes read or someone ripping you off on replacing parts. Another light will come on if something major is wrong. Such as check engine, oil, airbag, ABS brake lights. If ya just want to be sure (and waste money) goto a small garage and have the code read for $40 and post your codes and ask someone what it really means, thats if ya dont trust your mechanic. A dealer charges $75 and up. As a final note: talk to your friends, family, and neighbors for a trustworth non-dealer mechanic. It will save ya tons of cash in the long run.
