The amber light for the engine on my 2003 alphard comes on and off and i dont know what it means   ....can anyone help


Hi Charlotte,


Welcome to the Forum.


When does it come on ?

Is it on before you start the engine?

Is it on immediately after you start the engine ?

When does the light do off ?


What engine do you have 3.0L (V6) or 2.4L ?

How long have you had the van ?

How many miles/km has it covered ?

I have 2.4 engine. The light comes on before I  start ...then goes off and comes back on intermittently.  The light stays on all the time now......is it safe to drive it.

The light is amber colour and looks like an engine


You may want to talk with Roma Homes; Northstar Conversions, Cowes.

They convert Alphards and may know someone capable with an OBD2 machine that can help you diagnose the issue

Thankyou for replies but I still dont know what the light is telling me.


The diagnostic programs in your engine management computer are not 'happy' about one, or more, parameters your engine is experiencing.


You really need to have someone diagnose this engine light.

It could be serious, but might not be.


You could be risking a breakdown, serious or otherwise. Don't ignore it.
