Check Engine Light

If an illuminated engine shows up in the shape of the engine, there is likely an issue with—you guessed it—your engine. These issues can range from your gas cap being loose to your engine needed new spark plugs. It’s always a good idea to bring your vehicle into the mechanics if this light is flashing on your dash.


Battery/Charging Alert

Batteries can get old, which lowers its charge. When this happens, the battery light will come on. This light simply means your battery needs to be check or replaced to keep your car running.

 

Coolant Temperature Warning

When this light goes off, it means the temperature has exceeded its normal limits. To fix this and avoid overheating, check the coolant temperature, fan operation, radiator cap, and for any potential coolant leaks.

 

Oil Change Reminder

Every vehicle needs an oil change ever 3,000 to 5,000 miles. This light reminds you of that. It goes off when the oil life has expired, which means you need new oil to keep your engine running.


Tire Pressure Monitoring

Maintaining proper tire pressure is important. When your tires dip above or below the recommended pressure levels, this indicator light goes on. To solve this, check your tire pressure and either fill your tires up or deflate them slightly to keep them within the right pressure range.


Brake System

There are three possible conditions this light can indicate. Either the parking brake is on, there is an issue with the braking system, or something wrong with your anti-lock brakes. With the exception of the first issue, these should be taken care of at a service center.
