it's probably your check engine light. those are usually yellow. and the smallest thing from not tightening the cas gap could set that off

There is a Maintenance Required light that comes on when you first start tje car and it will blink for about 15 seconds after start up then go out. Eventually it will stay on. That light indicates you are due for a scheduled maintenance service.I don't know how many miles you have on the car so I can't tell you what its due for.it depends on the mileage on the car. The maintenance light comes on every 5000 miles or so to notify you of the need for an oil change. Every 10000 miles you should be rotating your tires and cleaning and adjusting the brakes. Every 30,000 miles you change the change your air filter also change your cabin air filter every 2 years.every 45,000 change the brake fluidevery 90,000 change the transmission fluidevery 105,000 change the timing belt, water pump and coolant.Every 110,000 change y our spark plugs and adjust your valvesso you can figure out from that matrix what your car is due for based on your mileage.You can shut the light off by following this procedureyou use the button that resets your trip odometer to reset the maintenance light.with the key in the ignition but not turned on, hold the trip reset button in with one hand. then, while holding the button in, turn the ignition key to the ON position so that the lights on the dash come on. continue to hold the reset button in and watch the maintenance light. it will take about 15 seconds for the light to go outwhen the light goes out, turn the ignition key OFF and then release the trip reset button.your light will be reset and come on in about another 5000 miles to remind you of the next serviceIf the light doesn't go out and it says "check engine' then its indicating a problem with the emissions control system that will require diagnosis. You can get an idea of what that problem might be by taking the car to an Autozone parts store and they'll check it for free.my guess is that you're asking about the maintenance lighthope that helps

If you see an icon of a small engine associated with the yellow signal, then it's your Check Engine light. If so, your car has detected a problem that can affect your engine's performance and operation.First check your gas cap to make sure it was securely closed and see if the engine light goes away.Otherwise, visit your local auto parts store and borrow/buy an On Board Diagnostic (OBD) scanner and plug it into the interface port under your dashboard. Then repost your question with the error code to find out if anyone has any ideas.Good luck!
