SOURCE: warning lights

On a Prius, when the check engine light comes on it indicates a malfunction in the powertrain control system. You need to have the car scanned for codes to see where the fault lies. The red triangle lights because the check engine light is on. The VSC is disabled when the check engine light is on and that light comes on.
Start with having the car scanned.

SOURCE: what does it mean when

ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.


For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.

The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

How to get rid of yellow engine symbol on dashboard?


Will need to have it daignosed by a professional and perform repair that is needed.
The "check engine" light is on because of a problem that the computer has sensed within the sensors of a faulty circuit.

The triangle is on because the problem is also effecting other modules within the vehicle.

Perform diagnostics to determine problem and repair problem..

Exclamation marks is red on dashboard, diagnosis shows code 171 and 174


P0171 System too Lean (Bank 1)
P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2)
So why does another fault light come up when brake pedal pressed ,Try reading the codes again with a diagnostic tester that has the relevant codes built into the machine and not a micky mouse device

I have a volvo s80, a light on the dashboard has a photo of a car that is leaning inside of a triangle,what does that light mean


The "leaning triangle" light is the light signifying there is a fault with the traction system (STC) a quick scan with a scan tool will tell you exactly what the fault is.
The only other triangle light on these cars is the triangle with the circle and the exclamation point. Which is either Orange or Red depending on the severity of the issue. And what you described sounds like the STC light to me.

Hope this helps.

Exclamation point in triangle blinking on dashboard


Hi, The exclamation point in triangle blinking is the "Emergency Blinker" This blinker turns on all all of the turn signal lamps at all four corners of the car. Left and Right, Front and Back. The triangle represents the European symbol for roadside emergencies. In fact on European Mercedes and other cars there is a triangle shaped reflector you can put behind the car so that other drivers know you have an emergency. THAT TRIANGLE ON YOUR DASHBOARD IS A BUTTON. PUSH IT ONCE. THE BLINKING SHOULD STOP. If you have a roadside emergency, and are broken down by the side of the rode. Push the Red Triangle and your lights will blink on and off ouTside to say, in effect "help".
Hope this helps.
Best,
Mark
