Recently, my friend was going on a long journey in his car. While driving, a warning light suddenly flashed in the dashboard. He did not know what it was nor he had the manual with him. So here, I write this covering all the warning lights (Petrol car), so that you can take the correct decision when it happens to you.
Warning lights in the diesel cars are also welcome.
Nice Writeup Praduymna!!! Thanks for sharing the info for others benefit.
great post ... perhaps all the cars starting from upper level hatchbacks and mid sized sedans have these indicators in place.
requesting others also to contribute ...
Thank you SolitaireKing and ashishjoshi. This post can become even informative by posting the warning lights of diesel car ( as diesel cars have lot of warning lights) and may be some warning lights which come only in high-end cars.
Strangely, my car (santro - 2001 model) does not seem to have a check engine (or malfunction indicator lamp). I have double/triple checked the instrument cluster - it isn't there. It has the following lights: parking brake, oil pressure, low fuel, battery, turn/hazard, high-beam...but nothing that resembles the MIL.
Hi Rohit - I guess all MPFI cars are having this facilities in built. Yours is car / mpfi?
Hi rohit, your car would be a carberated car. Only mpi car has cel facility. cel is used when one of the sensors fail or signal parts failure. Or the bulb is fused.
