Warning Lights on Your Car’s Dashboard

Car warning light symbols and indicators momentarily appear in different colours i.e., red, amber, green and blue on your instrument cluster display in motorbikes, cars, buses, and trucks. The following test will help you understand meaning of various car warning light symbols and indicators that can be found on your dashboard for most makes and models of cars, trucks, buses and motorbikes.

You will learn whether it is a critical warning that requires immediate attention, or whether you have time to visit a local mechanic.

The purpose of dashboard warning lights is to inform you that the systems they relate to are working correctly or not. If one or more lights stay on when the engine is running, they’re indicating there’s a problem which could be serious. Therefore, you are advised to visit your car mechanic.

Dashboard warning lights are displayed in red, amber, green and blue colours on a spectrum of seriousness. While blue and green warning lights are less urgent, we advise you to take the same precautions as you would for the more serious warnings to prevent damage to your car. It’s best to quickly stop where safe to do so and consult your car’s handbook for further advice before continuing your journey.
