    Default 2009 Toyota Corolla warning light?

    Hi guys,

    I am on a holiday from UK in Pakistan and as every year I have rented out a Toyota Corolla for my time here... suddenly today a warning light appeared.. it is a Steering wheel with an exclamation mark (!) next to it in Red... what does this sign mean?

    maybe it has always been there and I have just realised?

    Wakas

    EPS fault, usually lights up when the driver spins the steering too quick and too much with the car stationary which causes motor heatup. The steering wheel should not be played around with and used like a steering - with both hands not palm the thing.If its a rental car - take it back and get another one if the light does not go out.

    EPS does not have fluid bottle. when switch is clicked all warning lights comes up when car starts all shall go-off less the parking brake light it will go-off when brake is released.

    as more & more cars are using artificial intelligence (ECU) these lights act as BITE (Built-in Test Equipment) if there something wrong with any of safety or engine issues the ECU will sense and raise an alert Glowing the respective light.

    So if the light goes off after the car is started YES it is normal

    hahaha ... rental car ? owner's must have disabled it. Not to worry. if you are on driver's seat check the latch-insert on your left near console it must be having a plastic inserted or a belt clip from junk yard so there is no belt warning on panel

    @masters - you need to locate the belt insert with a red color push button on left of driver's seat it. the belt buckle when pulled from right across driver and pushed into it that click locks the belt and seat belt sign goes off, activating ecu to deploy airbag in case of accident. If there is NULL inserted light does not come up but highly dangerous for cars with airbags.

    I have seen an air bag break a person's neck in Karachi. It was also one of the "null insert cases" - Some people may find it funny but just try to ship an airbag or seat belt tensioner overseas - the freight charge applied is for "explosives"I have had the misfortune to experience an airbag - the speed and pressure with which it can inflate is faster than anything you will ever experience and its damn hot when your head hits it.
