When you are driving and you see a warning light turn on, you should see what it is and then make a decision. If your car is in trouble, you should pull over or take a route to your mechanic for some help. We will show you the differences and meanings of these lights and tell you what to do when you see them.
ABS – ABS stands for Anti-Locking Brake System. When the ABS light comes on, your vehicle may have a problem with its brakes. You should check the brakes and see if they work properly and try to find a mechanic who can help you.
Low Fuel – This icon signifies that you are running out of gas. When you see this light, you should pull off onto the next exit and go to the next gas station.
Low Oil Pressure – When this light comes on, you may have a problem with how your vehicle is using its oil. You should seek help when this signal turns on.
Maintenance Required – This icon means that maintenance is required on your vehicle. Something is preventing your vehicle from working as it should, so you should take it in for a checkup as soon as possible.
Low Tire Pressure Light – This low tire pressure light shows you that you need to fill up your tires with air. This can decrease your vehicle’s gas mileage and if not taken care of can lead to a flat. Fill it to the proper amount when you can.
