These days, cars come with a lot of warning lights. Some vehicles have up to 150 different dashboard warning lights on them. No wonder you might panic upon seeing an indicator light up on your dashboard! But what are these weird symbols, and what do they mean? Here's a good basic guide to what you need to know:Follow a simple color key. You don't need to worry about your vehicle unless the symbol lighting up is red in color. Red is used to warn you of a serious problem that could pose a threat to your safety. If it's yellow or orange, you might have to have something serviced or repaired soon. Meanwhile, green or blue simply means that some kind of system is turned on or functioning.
The truly harmless ones that are only telling you when something is currently turned on include the High Beam On Signal, Turn Signal Indicators, and the Fog Lamp light, which you may have seen before while using said features.Learn more about your car's indicator lights and set up your next appointment with our helpful service department at INFINITI of TUCSON!
