What Do My Dashboard Warning Lights Mean?

Dashboard Warning Lights - Suski Chevrolet BuickAs in-car technology gets more and more advanced, it will be easier to tell what your car needs or when there is a problem. For now, we have dashboard warning lights to let us know what is wrong. However, these lights can sometimes be confusing. Here is a rundown on some of the most common warning lights and what they mean.

  • Check Engine. This is perhaps the most dreaded light. When this turns on, it could be something as simple as a missing gas cap to something much more catastrophic. After checking your gas cap, it is best to have the issue diagnosed by a professional.
  • Oil Pressure Warning. This light turns on to indicate a loss of oil pressure. Check your oil level immediately.
  • Traction Control. When this light turns on, it means your car is using its built-in traction control system and usually means the roads are slippery. It should turn off when your car gets its traction back.
  • Airbag. This light should turn on every time you start your car. However, if it stays on, there may be a fault in your airbag system.
