Fortwo: What does the engine warning light actually mean

Customer Question

What does the engine warning light actually mean

Hi there,
The engine warning light is yellow, just like traffic lights means caution.
For example the oil pressure lamp is red, and red means stop, mechanical issue.
Now the engine light is illuminated whenever there is an electronic issue with the engine.
Could be a sensor, wiring fault, or the ECM itself.
If the light has come on during a driving cycle, you should get the vehicle inspected.
Hope this answers your question.
