Hi. I have a 2006 Toyota Prius. There is a blinking light on the dashboard when the engine is off. The light turns off when the car is started. The light is a car symbol with a vertical line intersecting the roof of the car. The manual indicates this light relates to the electrical system. The manual says to stop the car immedicately if the light comes on during operation of the car, but does not say what to do if the light comes on when the car is turned off. Is this a reminder of a need for re

The engine icon warning light has come on in my 2005 S-type 4.2 jag (50,000 miles). According to the manual, this means that something is likely wrong with the electronic control system for the engine. It happened once before, and the car went into limp home mode, but it has not done that this time. I have my car into a jag dealer, and he says the diagnostic for the engine controls has not revealed the source of the problem, but it does indicate many "faults". His solution is to begin trying

I drive an hour each way to work. My 1989 Buick LeSabre Limited drives beautifully for about 1/2 an hour. Once it heats up, the "service engine" light comes on the "temp" idiot light flashes and the motor rolls and tries to quit. However, the car gives no indication of a temperature problem (no smoking, smell, expanding hoses, leakes, nothing). I recently replaced the plugs & wires and the cooling sensor. This morning, the weather was much cooler and the car ran like a dream. A friend of mine pu

I have a 2001 Cadillac Catera that the oil light and alarm has been coming on when I come to a stop or slow down after driving the car for about an hour. Had the oil change and that solved it for a few weeks but now doing it again. Alos noticed that the Temperature Gauage was a good indication of when the oil light would come on. If the Temp went above the middle, the light was sure to come on. Never overheated just would go slightly above the middle range. Also, the cooling fan comes on a fair

My daughter is driving a 1999 Chevy Malibu which did not come with an owners manual. One of the indicator lights is on, along with the check engine light, and we do not know what it is for.

I've just bought a K13 Nissan Micra and it doesn't sound quite right. The noise I hear also seems to be coming from the back but it sounds like when you chop down a gear in a manual going down a hill and the engine revvs, well this is the noise I get in the automatic speeding up and slowing down, even just cruising at a steady speed. It's a drone that just shouldn't be there. Any ideas people? Is the car supposed to be like this? Apart from this noise I love this car.

Then as I slow down to a stop it wont down shift to 1st until the car is almost at a complete stop whuch also causes the engine to chug as if it is in too high a gear. Any suggestions?

Recently, my car started beeping. The sound comes from the dashboard (somewhere) and there are no indicator lights on anywhere (Check engine, battery, oil, etc). Upon starting the car, a long beep begins and beeps 5 times in a row. Then it will stop and beep again, 5 more times. It does this pattern, five times. (5 sets of 5 beeps) I called the local dealership and they have no idea what it could be. It does stop but eventually begins again about a half hour after driving. Is it electrical?

After driving a short while, engine control system light comes on and stays on. "Service engine soon-refer to owner's manual" is displayed. I don't have a manual. What does the light mean? Car seems to drive fine. No other warning lights come on. Engine data on display shows nothing abnormal. If car hasn't been driven for a while (2 weeks), the battery goes dead. Thanks, Donna

When I drive and get up to 50 miles per hour my engine light comes on and when I slow down to a stop and start up again the engine feels like it's bogging down. Two error codes light up on my dash: Check Traction Control and Check Stability Control. When I slow down and step on the gas again the engine bogs down. When I shut the engine off and restart the engine it drives fine until I get to 50 miles per hour again and then slow down and then the engine bogs down again

You have to reset the check engine oil level light. The light is just a 3 month reminder that lets you know when to change your oil. You have to hold the reset button on your dash for more then 5 to 10 sec. The procedure is in the owners manual that ... 1998 Buick Park Avenue

Hi I have a Renault Laguna 2002 ide sportswagon 84000 miles. Engine was great, but recently the electronic fault indicator has come on along with toxic fume filter warning light. The car has lost power and shakes bad when idle. Acceleration is slow and rough, and sounds like a tank. The problem disappeared for a few days with no lights and ran very smoothly, but has since returned. I really need your advice, and would much appreciate it.

Just had oil change, also needed a timing belt, water pump as well as new brakes all around and new tires this was a week ago, now the engine indicator light went on and stays on. Manual asks to check fuel, tank is full, but when I checked the gas cap, it just keeps turning and turning freely and clicking it was always hard to turn and click after filling with gas.

The check engine light on the dashboard will go on one day and two days later go off. Then a day or so later come back on again. Is this the time frame that is supposed to happen. The manual with the car does not indicate this type of pattern.

The malfunction indicator light comes on and off then the car slows down as if it is going to stop then goes again. It has stopped a couple of times already and if you leave it for a couple minutes before you start then engine it usually goes and then it's as if nothing happened. I find it mostly happens on longer journeys.

The check Maintenance Required light came on my 2006 Corolla about a year and a half ago. I checked the manual; it indicated that the oil should be changed. Even though I was nowhere close to a scheduled oil change, I went ahead, and still the light remained on. Now the check engine light has come on. The car only has 42,000 miles and I'm diligent about regular maintenance, checking fluids, etc. Is this most likely a problem with the warning lights, and what is the best way of fixing them.


The oil light is reset by the tech on each service. It will not go off by itself. As far as the check engine light goes you now have a code stored and you will need to get it before we can begin to diagnose. Only thing you can do is make sure the ga ... 2006 Toyota Corolla

Hi, our 2004 Mazda 6 Lux Sports has done 178,000kms. After a few hours of driving on country roads it pulls back. It loses power and I can't gain speed no matter what I try. Every time I put my foot down it splutters and slows down. I then pull over to the side of the road and the motor stops. If I wait a few minutes the car starts again and I can get up to near normal speed for about 8kms and then it does it again. After some time the yellow engine light comes on, but it goes out again (as soo
