The Holden Commodore sedan has been in the making since 1978 and is presently on the 5th generation. Here we see the Holden Commodore dashboard warning lights. Each symbol is displayed with the symbol meaning and what action should be taken.
These warning lights cover different generations of Holden Commodores, and a fixed warning light may not apply to your vehicle if the function is not available. Dashboard displays and symbol locations changes depending on the Commodore's model.
Holden Commodore warning lights or symbols such as engine check light, ABS light, and airbag light, we have guide, that will help you to understand the meaning of warning light. We've created this Holden Commodore Dashboard Meaning Guide, and we'll show you how to handle an engine light, airbag warning light, ABS light, and all the other car warning signs on your dash.
The airbag warning light brightens on the Holden Commodore dash, indicating a failure in the airbag and seat belt pretensioners. The front passenger airbag can be manually turned off by installing a forward-facing child seat.
For Holden Commodore versions with the manual parking brake, this light comes on informing that it applies. If the parking brake is fully released or your vehicle does not have a manual parking brake, this light tells you that the brake and clutch fluid is too low. Be sure to use the correct brake and clutch fluid for your Commodore version and refill if necessary. If you are unsure how to do it, have the vehicle repaired at a Holden workshop.
The ABS warning light illuminates on the dash of the Holden Commodore when a fault is detected with the ABS. Defective ABS does not affect conventional brakes, but be careful when braking, as there is an increased chance of wheels locking. The usual failure is ABS sensors or connections located on the wheels.
ESC or 'electronic stability control, is part of the Holden Commodore vehicle stability system, which is activated by default. The system helps maintain stability when turning and accelerating. ESC can be manually turned off ESC OFF, and if your Commodore model has this option, you can also Traction Control OFF. ESC warning light Lights up: When a fault has been detected, this is often a fault with the ABS sensors since ESC uses the same system or it flashes when ESC is working to actively stabilize the vehicle.
The tire pressure warning light will come on or blink.
Stable: This occurs when significant pressure loss is detected in one or more tires. Stop when possible, avoid sudden braking or steering. Replace the wheel if necessary.
Flashing - The tire pressure warning light will blink for about 60 seconds and then stay on to indicate a system failure. It is often due to a sensor failure or a wheel that has not been equipped with a sensor.
If the power steering warning light comes on after the left-to-right lock steer, the power steering module has overheated and temporarily shut down. When the module has cooled, it will be operational again. If the fault light stays on, there is a fault in the system. Although this is not a serious failure, you may notice that more physical effort is required to drive.
The Holden Commodore Engine Check Light will illuminate steadily or blink:
Stable: Often caused by an oxygen sensor where a fault occurs in the emission control system.
Flashing: If the engine check light is flashing, this is often more urgent as it can cause a misfire of the engine. It can potentially damage the catalytic converter. Reduce speed and avoid over-exerting the engine.
