The Isuzu D-Max pick-up truck has been produced since 2002 and is now the second generation. The first generation (MK1) was built until 2012, with the second generation (MK2) still in current production.
The Isuzu D-Max dashboard warning lights apply to both generations, including versions for all models. Dashboard layout and warning light may differ from the dashboard location model.
Detailed below are the Isuzu D-Max dashboard warning lights. In general, red warning lights are the most urgent and require immediate attention. The dashboard display layout and warning light location will vary depending on your model version.
Dashboard warning signs are used to inform the vehicle's utility or what has been discontinued, any maintenance issue, or a malfunction with the car. If you are doubtful of what the light means on your Isuzu D-Max , safely get off the road and investigate - mainly if the light is red.
The Isuzu D-Max seat belt warning light with an audible chime will alert vehicle passengers to tie their seat belts, along with the ignition key for ON/ RUN position. If a vehicle driver or passenger fails to tighten their belt, the light will start flashing, and there will be a chime sound. Fasten your seat belt for safety reasons, as it will secure you.
The Isuzu D-Max / SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) airbag warning light should blink seven times when the ignition is "on." There is a fault in the SRS airbag if:
• The warning light does not blink seven times.
• The Supplemental Restraint System airbag warning light does not go out.
• The SRS airbag warning light illuminates while driving.
If any of these conditions occurs, the airbag and seat belt pretensioners may not work in the event of an accident. Have the system serviced by an Isuzu workshop.
The red exclamation point in a circle is the Isuzu D-Max Parking Brake / Brake System Warning Light. This light:
• Illuminate when the parking brake lever has been raised. If the light is on, make sure the parking brake lever is not partially engaged.
• The brake warning light illuminates briefly with the ignition "on." If the light stays on while driving, it is due to a drop in the brake fluid level. Stop in a safe place and check the brake fluid level and check for leaks. If no leaks are found, fill with Isuzu's recommended liquid.
The Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) is responsible for preventing the brakes from locking when under heavy load. This allows the driver to drive, which is not possible when the wheels are locked. The Isuzu D-Max ABS warning light comes on briefly with the ignition 'on' for approximately 3 seconds. If the ABS light stays on or comes on when driving:
• Stop safely and stop the engine.
• Restart the engine, slowly move the vehicle forward, and gradually increase the speed to around nine mph (15 km / h). If the warning light goes off, the ABS works properly.
ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is a computerized technology that uses various security systems to improve vehicle stability. The Isuzu D-Max ESC warning light comes on for about 3 seconds when the ignition is "on". There is an error with the ESC system if:
• The warning light does not come on when the ignition is on.
• The warning light comes on when driving.
This can occur if the battery cables have been disconnected or if the battery voltage is low. ESC failure does not affect normal driving, but certain safety features will be disabled.
The Isuzu D-Max MIL, or Engine Check Light, comes on when the ignition is turned on and should go off when the engine starts. If the warning light comes on when the engine is running, it alerts you if there is a problem with the electronic engine control system or the Diesel Particulate Defuser.

The gear and exclamation point is the trans warning light on the Isuzu D-Max control. The warning light comes on with the ignition for about 3 seconds and should go off. If it stays on, it is an indication of an automatic transmission failure. If the light blinks, there is a failure in the transmission's electronic control system. The vehicle may enter an emergency mode where engine power is reduced, and certain gears may not function.
