We’ve all been in the situation where a dashboard light flickers on. But sometimes, we don’t know what it means. Here are some of the most common dashboard lights and what they mean.
Check Engine Light – This is a common light that flashes on (it looks like a mini engine). If this light is on, it means that there might be a variety of problems with your engine, small or serious. Take it to an auto mechanic to get it checked out.
Engine Temperature Light – Do you see a light that looks like a thermometer floating in the sea? This is your engine temperature light. If it’s on, it means that your engine is at risk of overheating.
Fuel Indicator Symbol – You should know what this light means. It’s a tiny gas pump that tells you that you’re running low on gas and should hit up a gas station soon.
Tire Pressure Warning Light – This light looks like a half-open tire with an exclamation point in the middle. What it means is that the pressure in one or more of your tires is low.
Oil Pressure Warning – This little genie-lamp means that you are running low on engine oil.
