Usually, the "half full" engine light is when the engine is in reduced power mode. The number one casue of this is a failure of the high pressure fuel pump. This engines fuel system is direct injection and operates at 50 bar (or 725psi). When it fails you only get 5 bar out of the electric low pressure fuel pump. Another symptom that goes along with issue is a longer than normal crank time in the moring. this issuse is not a huge problem the have repaired at the dealer and is covered under the facory warranty

Hi, Sounds like the service or check engine light. It could mean a lot of things from oil change to a major problem. You should take it in so an mechanic can put a scan tool on, and that will tell you what is going on.

Cheers,

Hi there,

An orange warning light which is a picture of an engine = Engine Check Light. Most commonly known as the Malfunction Warning Light (MIL).

If this light illuminates while driving, it means your engine computer has detected a malfunction somewhere within the vehicle's electronics. The computer monitors hundreds of components & circuits. Some of these are critical in nature.

For this reason, it's important you make arrangements to have an authorised Toyota service agent (or Auto Electrician) scan your vehicle's computer for diagnostic codes. This process takes only 15mins or so. If you have an Autozone nearby, they sometimes do this for free, otherwise find a service agent who can do this check for you, at little cost.


Cheers,

We have 2008 Honda accord. There is yellowish


It means it's time for service---- to change engine oil -- check air filter and various maintence stuff--- if you have the owners manual it will show you what service to perfoam and to log it in the service book.
Also has intructions in the owners manual as to how to reset the service warning light-- kind of tricky but once you get it it's pretty simple.

Only critical if you have a running issue. It may be just an emissions problem. I would get it checked out as soon as poss. just in case. Hope this helps.

this is your check engine light
