What do the warning lights on my dashboard mean?


Even the most responsible car owner can experience a dashboard warning light.

Research shows that most drivers don’t know what the most common dashboard warning lights mean, but the warning system is an an effective tool that alerts you to one or more problems with your vehicle.

What happens when one of those lights appears, and what does it mean?

It can be a sign that you need to get your vehicle inspected and possibly repaired, and Moore Tires Inc. can help!

The Check Engine Warning Light can be a sign that there is something wrong with one of your vehicle’s systems such as the emission, fuel injection or ignition system. When this light comes on, you should get your vehicle inspected as soon as possible.

When the Tire Pressure Monitoring System light is illuminated, it means at least one of your tires has low air pressure. Moore Tires recommends having all of your tires checked as soon as possible, as well as the sensor itself to ensure it is properly functioning.

The Brake System Warning Light indicator can mean your parking brake is engaged, your break fluid is low or something has malfunctioned with your anti-lock braking system.

The Oil Pressure Warning Light will indicate a loss of oil pressure and requires an immediate inspection.

Your Battery Alert Warning Light is an indicator that the voltage of your vehicle’s battery is below normal and alert you that there could be a problem with the charging system, requiring an inspection.

Moore Tires recommends scheduling complete and Engine Diagnostics check every 15, 30, 60, and 90,000 miles.

Most cars have a Check Engine light that turns on, but even this light does not indicate exactly what the problem is. The only way to find out is to have your mechanic run an engine diagnostics test on your vehicle.

Make sure you have a qualified, certified mechanic that you know and trust. He will be the one, who will help keep your car running smoothly for a long time.
