Dashboard warning lights

Sometime you are driving along with no issues and then a light flashes up on your car dashboard. These lights can often be amber, red or green and usually indicate a fault or warning. There are so many different warning lights that it would be impossible to list them all as each manufacture has different symbols for each and warns about different items.

One common one that you may see is oil or coolant warning light. This usually means that your oil or coolant level is running low and you should top it up. It often gives you a fair warning meaning that you do not have to stop immediately, but can wait until you get to a garage or back home.

Never ignore any warning lights on your dash as a warning can soon turn in to a problem if not fixed and if it is oil for example, may end up costing thousands of pounds rather than ten or fifteen for a bottle of oil.
