Dashboard Warning Lights and What it could Mean


Dashboard warning lights convey important information to drivers and alert them of potential dangers. If you notice any of these lights illuminating, make sure to schedule an appointment with us, so we can inspect the vehicle for you. If the light starts to blink, pull the vehicle over as soon as it is safe to do so, and call us. On some occasions, it is better off to be towed then risk damaging the engine further.

The engine coolant light means your engine is too hot. If you notice this, park and turn off the engine off for 30 minutes to allow the car to cool down, check the coolant level and top up if needed. If it doesn’t need any more coolant, bring it in so we can check it over as soon as possible as it could be a bigger problem.

The engine light can come on for a number of reasons – it can be due to a faulty electrical sensor, a misfire, or something else that will change how your engine normally works. Since it could be caused by a variety of reasons, it is recommended to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you.

Ignoring the oil warning light can cause extensive damage to your car. If the light is illuminated it’s because the oil temperature is too high or the oil level or pressure is too low. Make sure to stop driving as soon as the light comes on to avoid engine damage and get a garage to check the problem as soon as possible.

The battery light should come on when you turn on your car but if it doesn’t go out after a few seconds then there may be a fault with the electrical system – this could cause you to come to a halt if the battery isn’t working properly. It’s best to get it checked out as soon as possible, as it could be a faulty battery or it could be due to the alternator drive belt braking. By bringing the vehicle in for an inspection, you can help prevent further damage and breakdowns in the long run.
