Common Dashboard Warning Lights

Common Dashboard Warning Lights 

Your car is equipped with numerous dashboard warning lights. These lights are there to help you, but they can sometimes be difficult to interpret. Here are some of the most common warning lights and what they mean.

Check Engine

When this light turns on, there are a wide range of issues that can cause it. These issues can range from a loose gasket to something a lot more serious. It's best to have the check engine code read by a professional to see what is causing the problem.

Oil Pressure Warning 

If this light turns on and stays on, it indicates a loss of oil pressure. Check the car's oil level as soon as possible.

Coolant Temperature Warning

If your engine has exceeded normal temperature limits, this light will turn on. Check your coolant level, radiator cap, and fan operation.

Battery Alert

When your battery voltage is below normal or when your charging system is not working correctly, this light will turn on. Inspect your battery and/or have it tested.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

All new cars are equipped with this system. This light turns on when your vehicle senses the pressure is low in one or more of your tires. Check the pressure and refill as needed.

Gas Cap

This image is not a giant screw going into your car. This light means the gas cap may be loose or missing. Check it to make sure it's tight enough.

Airbag Fault

When this light turns on and stays on, there is a problem with the airbag system. Have your car inspected immediately, for your safety.

Lamp Out

This light doesn't mean it's a sunny day; it means there is an exterior light on your car that is not functioning properly.

Washer Fluid Reminder

This light means your washer fluid is running low. Refill the reservoir under the hood. Some vehicles have two reservoirs, one for the front and one for the back.
