I have a 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier and there is a light that came on the right side by the abs light. My fiancé has the car and is explaining to me what the light looks like. It might be an engine light. It looks like a square with a nozzle looking thing on the left and on top. On the right side it has a little half circle that almost looks like a pipe. He needs to know what this light means before he comes home from work because if it's something bad he doesn't want to drive the car.

BMW (1996) e36 318i ABS fault. The ABS fault light stays on which means that the ABS system is deactivated. The diagnostic check when the car was serviced was that the front left brake sensor was faulty and so we had this replaced however when the fault is reset on the onboard computer it comes back on after driving a short distance. The workshop (not BMW) says the ECU is at fault. Could this problem not be one of the 2 ABS relays in the fuse box?
