What Does The Light On My Dashboard Mean?

If you see a light flash on your dashboard while you’re on the highway, it’s easy to worry. While dashboard warning lights do not indicate an emergency, they do mean your car needs attention. Save time and stress by learning how to interpret the symbols and colors of your car’s dashboard alerts. In the guide below, you’ll learn which alerts are minor and which require immediate service:

Dashboard Lights and Their Meanings

If an unfamiliar dash alert makes you think, “What does the light on my dashboard mean?”, study your owner’s manual to find out which dashboard warning lights need to be dealt with immediately. Here, we’ve listed a few key symbols and their meanings:

  • Fog Lamp — When you see this light, turn your brights back off after using them to navigate dark roads outside Fountain Hills.
