Dashboard Warning Lights Part 3

This is part three in our three-part series to help teach you about the dashboard indicators that could come on in your car. It's important to be aware of the possible dashboard warning lights that may come on in your car, and more importantly, what they mean.

What Does The ABS Warning Light Mean?

This light will let you know if there are any issues with the anti-lock braking system. This doesn't necessarily mean you need to replace your brakes. It does mean that your ABS or other vehicle safety features are not functioning properly. Take your vehicle to a service station as soon as possible.  

What Does It Mean When The Oil Pressure Warning Light Comes On?

This light will illuminate when the vehicle detects dangerously low oil pressure. If you see this light come on, pull over and check the oil level immediately. View our video on how to check your oil level here.

What Does It Mean When The Temperature Warning Light Comes On?

If your engine is at risk of overheating. Pull to the side of the road and shut off your car right away. If the problem persists, take your vehicle in for service.

The Brake System Alert Is On

The Brake System Alert light comes on, this means your vehicle is at a dangerously low level of brake fluid. This usually happens if you have a leak. You'll need to get your car towed to a service center so you avoid potential brake malfunction.
