asked by on

My car has 22756 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The little orange light that looks like a spring is the Glow Plug Warning Light. But when it comes on, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have a problem with your glow plugs. Like the check engine light, it means that the engine computer has detected a fault and stored a trouble code to represent it. The car needs to be scanned by the appropriate diagnostic equipment, a generic OBDII scanner may not do the trick. By contacting Your Mechanic, you can get a qualified technician with the right equipment to come to your home or office to diagnose your car and tell you what needs to be done.
