What Do My Dashboard Indicator Lights Mean? | Toronto, ON

Your Lexus vehicle’s dashboard is outfitted with a range of indicator icons to help you better understand when there are issues you need to address. To help you decode your dashboard, here’s a look at some of your vehicle’s most important indicator lights.
 

Tire Pressure Warning

Tire Pressure Warning | Toronto, ON

 

Your tire pressure can fluctuate with the weather, lowering as the temperature lowers. Because tire pressure can affect your ability to control your Lexus, it’s important to know when it gets too low. That’s where this indicator comes in. When it turns on, you know you need to check your tire pressure and fill your tires up if required.

Check Engine Light

Considered one of the more common indicator lights, the Check Engine light can allude to a variety of issues. If it’s flashing, this typically means there’s a serious problem that needs to be fixed immediately. If it’s solid, this is a caution and can indicate anything from an issue with your engine’s electric systems to your gas cap being loose.
