Have a Toyota warning light that isn’t on this list?
Toyota and other car brands are always adding new technology and many of those new technologies have their own lights to go along with them. As such, some lights may only be applicable to a few vehicles or even specific trims. In those cases, it’s always best to either consult your owner’s manual or contact your local Toyota service department directly.
Are all dashboard warning lights bad?
As you can perhaps tell, most of the lights on this list aren’t bad. They are purely informational. Some are just telling you something about your driving situation such as having your headlights on. Others are making you aware of minor problems that you can fix yourself such as low fuel or washer fluid. Even tire pressure is something most people are able to fix on their own.
Some major lights like engine oil pressure, power steering, or ABS indicate a major problem that requires your attention. Or more specifically, the attention of a service facility. When it comes time to take care of your service, be sure you are going to a real Toyota dealer. This way your Toyota will get the attention that it deserves.
