Did a dashboard symbol light up in your vehicle? Dash warning lights are not always easy to understand. The symbols used can be confusing and offer the driver little knowledge of what to do.
When something runs wrong with your car or if a feature you should know is activated, a signal is routed through the electrical system and into the dashboard. It illuminates a hieroglyph and covers a wide range of problems, some of which can be serious. These are the meanings of the car dashboard, and we classify them according to the brand. Your board may be different, and the symbols may have altered designs or indicate slightly different things. Some of these lights could presage a serious malfunction. Don’t ignore them. If in doubt, have a professional review it.
The basic rules for warning lights are the same for traffic lights: if it is yellow, be alert and watch it as soon as possible. If it is red, pull off the vehicle from the road safely — then turn off the engine and call for help. Learn more about these symbols on the car’s dashboard and what to do when they light up.
