Every Car Dashboard Warning Lights Explained | Part – 1

The electronics system in today’s cars relies on sensors attached to warning lights and symbols on the dashboard. There are two main types of dashboard warning lights available red and orange. A red warning light usually indicates a severe problem with your car. If your dashboard warning light is red, you should act quickly.

An orange or yellow dashboard warning light means the Engine Management system – the computer running the engine – has detected a malfunction. You can continue to drive a car with an orange dashboard warning light, but you should visit your local service center as soon as possible for diagnosis and repair.

A Green or Blue dashboard light lets you know the system is on and operating.

    I’ve got a problem. My dad’s passat B6 sometimes does the spring light (the one where the Plug has to get heated) even if its Plug doesn’t have to get heated to start sooner. But it does that light when driving and it says ‘go to nearest workshop’. But this tuesday a new tiguan is gonna arrive and he’s gonna trade the passat for the tiguan

    Regarding service vehicle soon light, when it came on and i went to the dealer. He said that the light does not indicate any problem and it’s a reminder to service the car after it drove 20k km.
    In one case they forgot to reset it and it went on two weeks after scheduled service. I went there they said sorry, we forgot to reset it, reset the light in the computer and sent on my way.
