If it is the low coolant light, it may mean your coolant is low. If it is not low, it may be the low coolant light sensor malfunctioning.

It is the radiator warning light. Usually it indicates low radiator fluid level. I have had this come on when I have had some minor radiator leaks leading to radiator coolant level going down.

Any fluid would cause the fluid low light to come on in a Chevy cavalier. Fluids such as brake line fluid, power steering, transmission, and quite possibly oil. Everything but gas, grease and radiator fluid. Get her checked out at any large garage. They should take a glance for free. Do it soon though. The item may burn up and you will have to get a new part.

The yellow radiator light on your Honda Accord is an indicator of low coolant in the radiator. The red radiator warning light is an indication of the engine overheating.

It is normal for a temperature light to come on in the VW Jetta when the car is started. If the light stays on, it is probably an early warning that there is something wrong with the radiator. The car may be overheating right away when started because there is no fluid in the radiator, or there is a fluid leak somewhere in the system.

The radiator fluid is low or you parked the car at am angle.

The Chevrolet Cavalier low gas warning light goes on when there is 1.5 gallons of gas left. The average Cavalier can go approximately 40 miles.

This light indicates that the car is low on wiper fluid. To refill the wiper fluid resovuoir pop the hood and pour washer fluid in the clear tank. Note: not all cars have a wiper fluid warning light since not having any wiper fluid isn't a big deal.

Check the brake fluid level, as on many vehicles the "emergency brake" (in the UK, Hand-brake) warning light also acts as a warning light for low brake-fluid.

This warning light means that you need to add brake fluid to your car. Improper fluid levels can cause brake malfunction resulting in an accident.

Check the fan relay for the 1996 Cavalier. Also, check the coolant sensor, one of these is most likely bad.

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.

You might be out of brake fluid. Our rear wheel cylinder was leaking and ran ours out of fluid and the light came on.

probably low coolant level warning light

It means that your windshield wiper fluid is at low levels. Simply add more fluid and warning indicator will go away.

Symbols for Warning LightsI am not familiar with your vehicle, BUT...That sounds to me like the warning light for an electrically operated RADIATOR cooling FAN defect/error.

No, the red brake warning light will come on.
