Not sure what a symbol in your car means?
Every day we get into our vehicles and every day we see lights on our dashboard. These symbols are designed to inform you about possible issues with your vehicle. Auto dashboard symbols are warning lights. The lights are in different colors to emphasize the seriousness of any existing problem.
Red-light Symbols – These symbols let you know a serious problem is going on and could be a safety issue. When you see these red symbols, in most instances it means your car needs to be looked at by a professional as soon as possible.
Yellow and Orange Light Symbols – These symbols serve as a warning that a part or system in your vehicle needs servicing or repair. Pay close attention to what system or part the symbol is referencing.
Here are a few examples to help you understand your car’s symbols:
This means your engine may be overheating. Driving with an engine overheating can damage your engine permanently. Have your vehicle looked at by a professional.
This indicates a possible emissions problem with your vehicle and it may not be operating properly and needs service or repair as soon as possible.
In most cases, means you are losing oil pressure and your engine is not lubricating all of its moving parts. The vehicle should not be driven until oil pressure is restored.
This indicates a problem with a low tire or sensor. Driving a tire on low pressure can cause tire overheating and tire failure.
This indicates a malfunction with the Anti-Lock Braking System and should be diagnosed and repaired asap.
In most instances this is telling you that there may be a problem with your electrical system or battery.
