This is the check engine light (yellow light) and it only comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Yellow/Orange engine light on the dashboard what is the problem?T


Toyota Yaris engine warning light - this light will stay illuminated if there is a malfunction within the engine after start up - we would advise you to use the Toyota i905 iCarsoft kit to diagnose the engine problem, the kit will also clear the codes & reset the dashboard light. You might need to replace your MAF sensor because of this warning light, if so you should visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk for a replacement.

On the dash of my Ford Explorer I have a problem with two orange warning lights,the first one is below the speedometer and comes on as soon as I start the engine and stays on until I stop the engine and is...


The engine light is the "check engine light" and is telling you there is a diagnostic trouble code stored n the computer.The overdrive light is flashing because the code(s) is related to the transmission.This could mean something as simple as a bad sensor or a major failure.If you could go to a parts store and have codes pulled then i can give you some kind of ideal what direction you will need to go.

Orange engine symbol on dash stays lit, what does this suggest. nissan micra


Your car is most likely obd2 compliant (in the US everycar built after 1996 is) this means your check engine light could be on for a whole list of reasons, You will need an obd2 scanner to plug into the diagnostics connector to read the codes. Many times car parts places will let you use theres, hoping to sell you parts when you know what needs to be fixed. If the use of free one is not available you can probably buy one off of ebay for not too much. Use the code scanner, write down the codes and google them and/or buy a haynes manual that will explain how to do all these things.

I have a warning light on my v reg volvo s40 and wondered what it means. its like a orange lightbulb on the left hand side of the dash


It is the orange engine management warning light. It means that there is a problem, fault or parts that requires cleaning somewhere in your engine or parts that are connected to it.

Light on dash will not go out.round with broken orange lines


Replace brake pads that are worn. Check the sensor lead has not been worn away by the disc and replace if required. When finished switch on ignition for about five minutes and light should go out.

Orange check light on my dash flashes while driving.


That orange light means that you must have your braking system check...most probably it's the pads wear indicators that are earthing warning you that the pads are worn.
