Japanese automaker Toyota has been making the Yaris since 1999. It is powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The engine is tuned to generate 108 hp of maximum power and 140 Nm of maximum torque. You even get shift paddles with the CVT.
The Toyota Yaris dashboard warning lights listed below cover the past two generations and display a symbol, meaning the warning symbol, and in some cases, what to do according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
If a warning light comes on on the dash of your Toyota Yaris, always check how important it is. It is particularly important if the light is red. Red warning lights are the most urgent and, if ignored, can cause vehicle damage or risk to vehicle occupants.
The Toyota Yaris dash warning lights help you to understand failure in your vehicle. They can prevent a car from a breakdown or total failure, which can save you from an expensive repair bill. If these lights are working correctly, no warning light is illuminating; it means you stay safer on the road.
The red seat belt warning light on Toyota Yaris illuminates along with an audible alarm notifying the driver, and front passenger must fasten their seat belts.
If the Toyota Yaris airbag warning light stays on always, it indicates a malfunction in:
• The SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) airbag system;
• The front passenger occupant classification system; or
• The seat belt pre-tensioner system.
In this case, the system may fail to activate during an impact. Part of the system is located under the front seats, and occasionally the cables can be disconnected.
The Toyota Yaris ABS dashboard symbol means 'anti-lock brake system' and should come when the ignition key is switched to ON/RUN for four seconds. ABS helps prevent wheels from locking under heavy braking. If this symbol arrives while driving or fails to come at all with ignition, then ABS is at fault and is not functioning. If the brake sign light is not on, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally. Drive the vehicle to the service center to restore ABS.
Under normal operating conditions, the slip indicator warning light blinks, indicating that the system is currently working and trying to stabilize the vehicle. If the warning light illuminates continuously, it means a malfunction in VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) system, TRAC system (traction control), or Hill Start Assist Control System. The system detailed above uses the ABS wheel speed sensor. A fault may be related.
When the tire pressure warning light illuminates, it indicates a loss of pressure in one or more tires. This is due to natural causes or a puncture. If the warning light blinks for a minute and then stays on, it indicates a failure in the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
This warning light illuminates possibly along with an audible alarm indicating a malfunction with the electric power steering. It could be a permanent or temporary failure. Temporary failure is due to overheating of the power steering motor and temporary deactivation due to protective measures. It may be due to leaving the steering in the full lock position or the continuous lock direction from left to right repeatedly. If the light stays on after some time, have the system repaired at your local Toyota workshop.
This symbol represents the rear fog lights of Toyota Yaris being switched on.
Lane Departure Alert (LDA) warns the driver if the vehicle has left a lane. The system identifies white and yellow lanes. The LDA warning light may brighten due to failure or because the radar/camera is darkened
Toyota Yaris's dipped headlight symbol indicates that dipped light is on. It is basically used at nights. Pull the lever towards you for a temporary high beam, "Flash to pass" scenario.
The turn indicator symbols represent the indicator is switched on of Toyota Yaris.
This Toyota Yaris dashboard warning light informs the driver that the exterior lights/sidelights/parking lights/headlights are switched on.
This symbol represents the front fog lights of Toyota Yaris being switched on.
The triangular warning light that contains an exclamation point is the master warning light. An audible warning sounds and the warning light comes on or blinks to indicate that the master warning system has detected a malfunction. The warning light also illuminates, meaning that there is a message to read on the information display. The main warning light can illuminate along with other warning lights.
Toyota Yaris's high beam headlight symbol indicates that high beam headlights are on. Keep the multifunction control lever away from you to switch the headlights to a higher beam.
