Airbag warning light
While faulty airbags won’t affect your car’s day-to-day ability to haul you around, you need to take care of it ASAP because accidents are never planned. That kind of their point. To be accidental. So you don’t have to pull over the second this light turns on, but you should be extra careful as you drive to an auto shop to get it checked out.
Shaped like an old oil jug, this light indicates there’s something wrong with the oil level, pressure, or temperature. If the light is red, it means the engine needs you to add more oil. The engine oil helps regulate temperatures and prevent wear. When this light turns on, pull over and turn your car off. If the light is orange, you don’t have to pull over right away but you should definitely drive to the nearest place where you can get your oil checked.
Engine coolant temperature
This light means your car is on the verge of overheating, which can be disastrous for your car. If the red light comes on right after you started the car, your coolant levels are low. If it’s blue, it means you should drive carefully until your engine is warm enough.
Brake warning lights
If the P! warning light turns on, it means there is a problem with your parking brakes. Most likely, the issue is that it’s not fully released. Release it and go on as usual. If the other brake light comes on, the problem is in the brake pad or brake fluid. Carefully pull over when you can and have a mechanic look at your brakes.
Battery warning light
Cars rarely break down immediately over low battery charge. However, the low charge may stop other things from working. If that is the only warning light that’s on, your car can probably go on for a few more miles to have it looked at.
