Common Dashboard Warning Lights

Some symbols on your car’s dashboard are more obvious than others. However, it’s important to know exactly what they mean in case any of these turn on

Low Fuel Indicator – This is a common symbol that most drivers are familiar with. If this light goes on, it means you’re running low on gas.

Oil Pressure Light - If this light is on, it can be an indication that your car is low or has no oil pressure.

Check Engine Light - This light indicates a possible problem with your car's emissions control system.

Tire Pressure Warning Light (or the TPMS symbol) – This light informs you that the pressure in one or more of your tires is too low or too high. Driving on low- or high-pressure tires can cause additional damage to your vehicle. Tire pressure should be between 30 and 35 psi (pounds per square inch).

Engine Temperature Warning - This light means that your engine is overheated. This most likely has to do with your coolant (also called antifreeze), but it can happen for a variety of reasons.

Red Brake Warning Light - This light indicates a problem with hydraulic system. Some vehicles might have this light turn on when the parking brake is on so be sure to check your parking brakes first.

ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) Warning Light - ABS checks the speed of each wheel in your vehicle and prevents your wheels from locking up. If this light is on, your ABS is not working properly, or you may be low on brake fluid.

Windshield Washer Coolant Level Indicator – This light indicates that you are low on windshield washer fluid.
