A lot of things...specifically that something is wrong..take it into autozone and they'll plug into it and see what the trouble code is and tell you what's wrong.

if you are talking about the orange light that looks like (sorta) a house, it would be a low coolant warning light. apparently, that is supposed to be a radiator.

A flashing check engine light is an indication of a misfire. See related questions

NO. That means the engine is running too hot. Check cooling system.

Depending on the year of the truck, some of the new models the engine light will turn on if you did not close your gaz tank cap tight( three clicks)... Either way engine light will not turn off until you "reset" the warning lights usually with a computer from your garage or dealer. They will be able to read the warning code and tell you exactly what went wrong. if that doesn't work another thing that would defiantly be worth checking into would be your catalytic converter could be partially plugged

depends on what the light is for? engine light? amber means its not serious but i would get it seen to straight away. the stop light means its serious

If it is easy, your gas cap is not on correctly.

The engine coolant temp sensor can do that. If you have a check engine light on, have the codes read.

The light could come on for a number of reasons. The vehivle would have to be hooked up to a scanner to determine the engine code or codes. After you determine the codes you can isolate and fix the probelem. If the check engine light is on there will be a computer code that will appear on the scanner.

I disconnected the battery and left doors open. I was thinking it would drain the capacitors. I left it for about 30 minutes. The check engine light was off and the warning on the dash disappeared.

You need to connect a OBD-II Scanner to find out.....

If the check engine light is illuminated, start with scanning for codes.

You can buy the check engine computer and the book comes with it. I know, I bought one. When your check engine light comes on, you plug it in and check the engine and it will give you the code and you look in the book for that code and it gives you the answer.

The check engine light would come on and the code stored would refer to a bad cat.

No... A corolla engine is made by Toyota for a Toyota Corolla vehicle... The Chevy Prism is made by Chevy... Chevy and Toyota are different companies...
