Meaning of warning lights


Manufacturers spend billions of dollars a year refining their cars' on-board diagnostics systems. However, all of the sophisticated diagnostics in the world will do little good if you don't know what the warning lights mean.
Purpose
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors to monitor engine, braking and chassis performance. Any deviation from the car's established limits will trigger a dashboard warning light.


Check Engine Light
Check engine lights can indicate failure of the emissions system, fuel injection system, faulty sensor feedback, overheating or lack of voltage, transmission failure, and engine knock ignition system failure.


Brake Lights
Almost all cars have two separate lights for the braking system: a red "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light and "Brake Warning" light. The former indicates failure of the electronic anti-lock system, the latter a loss of fluid pressure in the brake system itself.


Dynamic Warnings
Many modern cars have traction or stability control systems that prevent and notify the driver of tire slippage. These lights can come in the form of amber "SLIP," "TC," or "TRACTION" lights (for spinning tires), or "ESC" (electronic stability control) lights for a sliding vehicle.


Safety Lights
Most cars have a diagrammatic warning that indicates a door that isn't all the way closed, a seat-belt warning light, and an "airbag disabled/enabled" light. Any or all of these will be red or amber.

The esp light went on first and then the glow plug warning sign on my 2005 TDi passat. said workshop assistance, what is the problem


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.

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.: brake pedal switch, 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.
I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.
Good Luck!

Long story - 1st I had glow plug light & traction control lights on.hrottle pedal chaged & lights re-appeared after 2 days. Then the emission control light came on before I got to the audi...


U paid 290 euros and they did not fix it. I would go back and insist that either they fix it or return my Euros so I could take it to a competent mechanic.

Audi a6 glow plug light and abs light plus triangle sign stay on any ideas


the easiest way to find out EXACTLY whats wrong is to ask an AUDI DEALER for a diagnostic check for your car,they have the fault codes and the book that tells them what parts need replacing,if any.the glow plugs are in no way connected to the warning triangle/abs,so you have at least two problems......the cost of diagnostics is about $50,cheap if you buy/fit any parts required.
UNLESS YOU HAVE A LIST OF ALL THE FAULT CODES AND WHAT THEY MEAN.......you could fit bits that are not needed.

Jeep 95 warning lights ?


The gentleman above gave you the correct starting point. There are red and amber lights. Amber usually indicates a problem with the engine electronics or emissions system. Red lights are related to charging or alternator problems and engine overheating. If a light comes on you need to check the related system before you wind up disabled on the side of the highway.

Glow plug indication light flashes while driving never goes away


Remarkably, this problem is often associated with a faulty brake light switch down at the pedal!
It happens on my '97 Sharan from time to time and a tap on the brake pedal with my left foot stopped the glow plug light flashing.

You may need to replace the switch; but I would suggest checking the connecting wires down there first - and get someone to tell you if your brake lights come on when you press the pedal.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
