GUIDE TO DASHBOARD WARNING LIGHTS

Seeing an indicator light appear on your dashboard is never a good sign, but it may not be as bad as you think. Not all dashboard lights mean the vehicle is in critical condition. In fact, some lights are simply warnings that the vehicle needs service or a specific area needs attended to. If you aren't sure what each light means, here are a few common dashboard lights to help you determine what's wrong with your car.

 
OIL PRESSURE WARNING
The Oil Pressure Warning light looks similar to a tea kettle with a drop falling from the spout. As it's one of the most serious dashboard indicator lights, it would be a good idea to stop the vehicle immediately and turn off the engine. This light indicates that your engine is either running low on oil or there's a problem with the oil pressure system. Consult our service department for a diagnosis.
ENGINE WARNING
With a design similar to a submarine, the Engine Warning Light can come on for a long list of reasons. While it could be nothing, it wouldn't be a bad idea to take precautions in case there is some kind of major problem. Bring your car in to Crumback Chevy if you see this light!
LOW FUEL INDICATOR
The Low Fuel Indicator light looks similar to a gas pump. While it isn't necessarily a serious problem with your vehicle itself, there's definitely cause for concern. Make sure to stop at the next gas station and fill up the tank!
WASHER FLUID INDICATOR
The Washer Fluid Indicator looks similar to an orchestra conductor and simply indicates that the washer fluid level is low. There's no need to stop (unless you can't see out of the windshield). Just make sure to add washer fluid once you reach your destination.

There are dozens of indicator lights but these are a few of the most common. Take the time to review some of the more serious symbols so you can avoid making any minor problems worse. And if you are experiencing a problem, never fear - just bring your car to Crumback Chevrolet and we'll be happy to get things back to normal!
