It's the same as a Check Engine light or Service Engine light. Something has tripped a code and the light goes on. Have the car scanned for the codes, the light doesn't need to be on it's stored in memory. The code will pinpoint you to the issue. Maybe emission sensor, or other issue.

GARAGE SAYS ITS THE GLOW PLUGS I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS THEY BEEN CHANGE 4 TIMES NOW I STILL HAVE PROBLEM I THINK ITS A FAULT IN THE CANBUS SYSTEM
