It means the PCM has detected a problem and you need to have it "scanned". Take it to your favourite technician and tell him about the light.

Orange check engine light fpr 2005 toyota corolla


An orange check engine light means there is an electronic failure in the engine control system. It could be anything from a loose fuel cap, to a bad sensor on the engine. It is not an emergency, but you should get it checked out. A red engine light is an emergency and requires you to immediately stop the car. Yellow is a warning.

Orange check engine light in VW 05 Tourag


Does it have a symbol on it that looks like a gas can ? If it does it most likely is the light to remind you to get gas because you are low.

Brake light bulb was changed, now brake light is on


Most likely the incorrect bulb was installed or a faulty bulb, causing an electrical cross over. Replace the bulb, and check socket.

Orange check light on what does it mean cant tell what the symbol is?


The orange check light is the Check Engine light. This comes on when you have something wrong with the systems/sensors that are controlled by the vehicle's computer. The Check Engine light comes on for a myriad of reasons, the number one culprit is a loose fuel filler cap. What I would suggest to you is to take your car to an Autozone or somewhere where you could get a scanner plugged into your car's diagnostic connector, and get the reason for the light being on identified. Once you have the trouble code, you can get back to me for additional info to rectify your situation!
