Have you wondered why lights appear sometimes on the dashboard? If you don't know, here are the 5 most important warning lights you should know about.
1. Low Engine Oil Pressure
It will usually look like an oil can when the light comes on. This means that it may need more oil in the car. But if you are not sure, please bring it into our auto shop, so we can solve this problem!
2. Tire Pressure Warning Light
It looks like a boat when the lights come on. This means that the tire pressure is usually low. So you'll want to check the tire pressure to ensure that it's at an optimal level. If you don't know how to do it, get it checked.
3. Check Engine Light
This is one of the most worrisome lights because you may think your engine is failing. Sometimes that is not the case. It will appear as an engine block on the dashboard if it displays that. To be safe, bring it to an auto shop to check for any problems that your engine may have.
4. Faulty Electrical System
This will appear as a car battery on the dashboard. What this means is there may be a problem with the charging system in the car. If you don't know what is causing the electrical problem in your car, get it checked as soon as possible. It can range from everything from your battery to something else. This is something you would not want to ignore.
5. Coolant Temperature Warning
This will look like a thermometer dipped into liquid on your dashboard. This means that there is something wrong with your coolant system. When this happens, you do not want to be driving. In fact, you'll want to be pulled over on the side of the road to check what's wrong with the coolant system. Opening the hood can help make the engine cool quicker, but you should take it to an auto shop as soon as you can.
