I don't mean the check engine light.

I mean the master indicator light which is a triangle with an exclamation mark in it.

The manual says that it should come on together with another symbol or message which will show what the problem is. This doesn't happen.

All I get is an illuminated master indicator light.

Okay thank you ,

This signals an unidentified problem with your car; it usually requires the car to be serviced.

You have to be hooked up to a scan tool to check for any possible malfunction .

A symbol in red indicates a potentially serious problem or safety issue.
It is also used to indicate an important reminder.
Yellow/orange mean something needs to be serviced or repaired soon.
If the symbol is flashing, it is truly important that you contact your dealer.
A green or blue symbol is for information only,

Check all system are good, like not low on fuel ,doors open when in D .

Like the icon says master warning ..and yes in most cases you will have another warning light come on ,but in some cases not, like yours has a service just been done with oil change ect.

Master warning light ignition switch is placed in the ON or START position and remains illuminated until the driver’s This light comes on when various vehicle infor- seat belt is fastened

If you need further assistance with this issue then please let me, get back to me with the reply button and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
