Once the computer has set the error codes, the engine has to be started about fifty times before it will learn that the correction has been made. You can also shut these off after the conditions have been corrected, by using certain scan tools that have that capability. Or you can disconnect the neg battery cable for a minute, but this procedure, can cause some loss of learned information, that has to also be relearned by the powertrain control module. The theft deterant capability of the radio if equipped will render the radio inoperative until you get the code to reset that feature from a dealer. So it is actually better to be patient and wait out the fifty or so starts and stops. You could just sit there and start and shut off the engine, but that's not that good to do either. The scan tool reset method is probably the best, because you can see more readily if the system needs some work to correct it. It is quite probable that the gas was allowed to go low enough, and the engine hot enough to have initially set the error codes, and then these conditions have been since corrected, but because it takes several restarts to automatically shut the lights off, one has to be patient. Having said all that I have to correct myself because the gas light normally resets as soon as you fuel up. Never the less the gas and temp indications are probably unrelated, although they could point to control module problems or act engine problems. The Gas indication could be a problem in the gauge sender unit inside the gas tank, but that is all something that has to be checked and reasoned out. If the gas gauge is accurate, then it's probably safe to ignore it as much as possible, but it could be an indication of troble to come. There are other more expensive possibilities, like the body control module, or the Power train Control Module.
If it comes on it means the temperature of your engine is too hot. Your engine is overheating.
It is possible for the check engine light to come on in a Pontiac Transport when using ethanol gasoline because it burns hotter than other gasoline. The check engine light might also come on if the oxygen sensor is bad.
A faulty temperature sensor can cause the ECm to think your engine is overheating, this turning the heat light on constantly. You should make sure that your engine isn't in fact overheating though.
possibly overheating or faulty sensors in cap lid!
It means the engine may be overheating.
You are OVERHEATING. You most likely have an intake or Head gasket problem.
In most vehicles there are different temperature readings, especially in newer vehicles. The TEMP light usually means the Coolant temperature in the radiator. If a warning light comes on it usually means your vehicle is overheating and should be checked out by a mechanic asap.
Make sure vehicle is not overheating Replace temperature sending unit
Bring to a shop that has and ABS Scanner to detemine problem
The engine is overheating. The check engine light is not on because you have no problem with the emissions system which this light monitors.
Yes, Means your engine is cool. If red at anytime you are overheating.
If it's red it's overheating, blue it's not hot enough.
that tells you that the engine is overheating you should have it checked at your local dealer
You have two different temperature sensors in your engine. One is connected to the gage on your dash. The other is connected to your car's computer. The one connected to your car's computer either malfunctioned or a wire leading to it broke. When that happened, it told your car's computer that the engine had overheated.
The light is not a coolant light, it is a temperature light which comes on when the temperature of the coolant is above the limits. In other words you engine is overheating. Can be defective thermostat, bad water pump, clogged radiator, or blown head gasket.
What you see is NOT a flag it is a thermometer over water. This is the engine temperature light. If it is on the engine is overheating.
The gauge on the far right side of the gauge cluster is your engine temperature gauge. The normal operating temperature is at the half-way mark. If the needle raises above the 3/4 mark then the car is overheating. A light will come on also if it begins to overheat.
it could be a range of things. it could be overheating, gas gauge is low, or your rpms are running too high.
you could have abad temp sensor
Refill the reservoir with coolant and the light should go out unless the switch is broken. Where is the temperature sensor for motor? one for computer
It is a Pontiac Aztek. Light a match and get some marshmallows.
That happens because the engine is overheating. Normal causes are low coolant, bad thermostat, or inoperative fan.
The check gages light on the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am means to check temperature, low oil possibly, water. These are to be kept maintained for the car to run properly.
