Cars Dashboard Lights

  • Engine Temperature Warning light – this symbol looks like a sailboat in wavy waters. When this warning light turns on it means that your engine is overheating. There is a possibility that the lubrication and oil system is not functioning properly. The lubrication prevents friction and it helps to cool the engine down during use.
  • Tyre Pressure Warning Light – this symbol looks like an exclamation mark inside a bowl with grips. When this light comes on you need to urgently check the tyre pressure before you destroy your tyres and the axle of your car. The pressure might not be so low but you never know when you are dealing with a complete flat on the highway.
  • Oil Pressure Warning Light – this warning light looks like the lamp from Aladdin or if you are old-school, an oil dispenser that was used in the workshops. The car needs oil like a person needs water. Oil assists with lubrication and keeps the engine running smoothly without wearing down different components.
  • Traction Control Light – This light looks like a car that is swerving. When this light comes on it means that one wheel is spinning faster than the other. The car then engages the traction control so that the brakes can pump the wheel up to reduce speed and possible slippage.
  • Engine Warning Light – This warning looks like either a yellow submarine or a faucet. This may come on due to a loose gas cap or a faulty spark plug and it should be checked at a mechanic to resolve the problem.
  • Anti-Lock Brake Warning – This symbol looks indicates the letters “ABS” inside a circle which is then surrounded by an incomplete circle. This means that there is a problem with the anti-locking braking system. If the brakes lock, you could end up in a serious accident.
  • Battery Alert – this warning symbol looks like a block with a plus and minus sign on each side respectively. Your car could be running low on battery power or general power. The purpose of the battery is to power all the electronics of your car such as the spark plug ignition. The lack of spark in the plug would mean that your car won’t ignite or start.
  • Fuel Indicator Symbol – This symbol looks like a petrol dispenser. When this light comes on you need to fill up the fuel tank with the specified fuel that the car uses.
