Sounds like you are low on oil...check your oil level at the dipstick...under no circumstances are you to start that engine until you check the oil level. I will bet you have an oil leak somewhere...trailer the bike to the Honda shop nearest you!

It sounds like the oil pressure light, it may be a bad oil pressure sender. I am not real familiar with this bike but you need to locate the sender and take it out. Put in a line and gage to test if oil pressure is good then replace sender and light should go out.

Give yourself extra time to get to work. Then start your car and allow it to sit for 5 minutes to make sure that the engine is ready to work. This means that it is warmed up, everything has been lubricated.

What light is it? You didn't say, and every light is labeled, so can you enlighten, (pun intended), me?

You might be able to look it up on YouTube, never know.

Good luck.

Normal maintenance on 2001 bmw z3 2.5 l


Servicing is normally reminded by the service indicator lights on the dashboard, normally 5 or 6 green lights when originally set after a service, these go out one at a time dependant on your driving style, distances travelled, time scale etc, when all green lights extinguish the next light is usually orange, then eventually red, but during the period of the orange to red it will also say "Oil service or Inspection " these can be defined by the vehicle service manual

I have a light that keeps showing up on my dashboard its a red square with liquid on the bottom and an arrow pointing down...what does this mean? i checked all the fluid sand nothing seems low...


I don't own a Chevy, but the description sounds like low brake fluid. Dashboard lights normally reserve red for brakes- I believe that it is a standard of some kind.

Have a Reddy Heater RCP275 propane gas heater. If able to light - the heater will burn for 1-5 min. but then goes out. Sometimes burner will not light at all when the red pilot button is released. At times...


Sounds like the igniter needs to be replaced. It is normal for a heater to run five or so minutes that means the thermostat is working. then restart when the temp calls for heat but if the igniter does not work it will not light up again.
