Your vehicle’s dashboard indicator lights were made to let you know when problems (both big and small) arise. This guide highlights some of the more common dashboard lights so you can understand what your vehicle is trying to tell you.

It’s likely you’ve seen the Check Engine light before. This indicator is a common one, since it comes on whenever there are issues in the emission control system. These issues can range from something small like a loose gas cap to something much more major like an engine leak. When you see the Check Engine light, you will want to bring your car in to see your mechanic as soon as possible.
