Modern cars are filled with electronics and packed with sensors to monitor both how your vehicle is behaving and to make our motoring life easier.

But when something does go wrong, it can be a difficult task trying to work out exactly what that warning light flashing away on your dashboard is trying to tell you.

It’s important to know what the car dashboard warning lights actually mean, though, not least because they can pre-empt a car breakdown or full-on failure, potentially saving you from an expensive repair bill and meaning you stay safer on the road.

Listed below are some of the most active.


 Tyre Pressures need attention "don't ignore"



 Engine management light "this is on for a reason please take to a garage for inspection ASAP"



 Engine running to hot "please stop safely and allow to cool" running an overheating vehicle can cause big damage. 



 Oil Low, it is essential your oil is at the correct level "Please top up ASAP"



 Brake warning light indicates low brake pads "inspection is needed.



The above lights can just be caused by relaxing the way you care for your car or van, the tyre pressure light could just be a simple top up of pressure, and the same can be said for the oil light both are a very simple fix. Brake light generally means you brake pads are nearing the end of their service. Engine management light can again be very simple however this could also be a very urgent matter which needs attending to asap. Please remember the computer system in modern vehicle are there to keep us safe, please pay attention to them.

If ypu have any of the above light showing, or others pleae give us a call 01482 328800 and we can book you in for a diagnostic reading
