    It sounds like a possible standby and is stuck or error, have you tried pulling the power cord for a while letting it sit then resetting it?

The YLOD is getting more common it happens because of similar reasons to the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360, you can send it in and they will fix it for you or you can actually fix it yourself

    Under the Sale of Goods act, you can have the console replaced by the retailer.


    The Yellow Light problem is a manufacture one. The onus is on the retailer to make sure goods are not faulty at time of sale.


    All you need is proof of purchase, receipt or credit card statement and an independent fault report.


    If you don't have a receipt, you could get it repaired using Infra Red:

My headlights won't turn on, the yellow driving lights turn on but the headlamps won't. Also the lever that controls bright lights doesn't work but the turn signal and cruise control does.


First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.

Game got stuck in ps3 and then i got the game out and now it wont turn on and a yellow light comes on


Yellow Light of Death. Contact Sony immediately. 800-345-SONY. My local repair shop won't touch Yellow Light of Death. If your system is out of warranty, Sony will offer to exchange it for a recertified unit for $99.

My Rascal 318 has two constantly flashing yellow light and will not work. Help


Hi wrosser2

Two constant yellow flashing lights indicates three things
1. Low voltage. Load test your batteries even if they are new. You may need to take them out and charge them on a car charger. Your charger won't work without at least 20 - 22 volts. Your inhibitor on the charger won't close to make continuity to turn the charger on.
2. With an olms meter check your front to rear harness for continuity. If you have a bad wire, replace the front to rear harness.
3. Third and most costly is a bad controller. No way to check that without replacing it. Check 1 & 2 first.

Good Luck
