​DASHBOARD WARNING LIGHTSType your paragraph here.

What is that dashboard light telling you?


​You may have noticed the illuminated symbols on your dashboard when you start your car. While these lights usually go off right away and are soon forgotten sometimes one of the lights will stay on. Warning lights on the dashboard are simply that, WARNINGS. You could potentially have a problem and should have your car inspected for needed repairs. 


While dashboard warning lights vary by vehicle, the following are examples of common warning lights. 

                         

                    Check Engine Light


The check engine light usually indicates that a vehicle system, (ignition, fuel injection, emission control), is not operating properly, even if the vehicle appears to be running normally.  A glowing light doesn't mean you have to immediately pull the car to the side of the road, but have it inspected as soon as possible. A flashing check engine light requires immediate attention.


Battery Light 



The battery/charging alert indicates that battery voltage level is below normal and the charging system is not functioning properly. Check battery terminals, alternator belt and battery condition. Type your paragraph here.

                    ​Anti-lock Brake System



An illuminated brake system light could mean the parking brake is on, the brake fluid is low, or there is an issue with the anti-lock braking system (ABS). Check to make sure the parking brake is off and have a professional technician check the brake fluid level and diagnose if there is an ABS issue. Type your paragraph here.

                 TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)


The TPMS light indicates that a tire has low air pressure or the could be an issue with the sensor. Tire pressure should be checked immediately. Some vehicles will allow manual reset of the TPMS warning light while others require you to bring the car to a professional service technician to reset it.
