Indicator light One of my indicator lights is on. It comes on sometimes, it flashes sometimes. I have no manual so I don't know what the light is for. It's a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I was told it comes on if my gas cap is screwed on loosely, I was also told I should not drive it if the light stays on. thank you!

The light is the check engine light, it tells you there is a problem with the emission system for the engine, you can take it to Kragen auto and they can test it for trouble codes for free, when you have those codes post them here, and I will try to help you figure out the problem. It's ok to drive it.

Bmw x5 sidelight out but indicator on


Whenever a light doesn't work and the dash indicator light comes on without flashing, first suspect a bad bulb, or a bad ground at the bulb.
The electricity is feeding back through the system to the dash indicator.
Second would be the flasher, but likely not in your case.
Be blessed.

Check the wiring harness. Sounds like it has come in contact with the break assembly and is shorting out. Look for exposed wiring where the cover has worn off coming in contact with the break. Tape all exposed wiring and be glad you haven't had a small fire.
