Warning Lights, Gages, and
This part describes the warning lights and gages
that may be on your vehicle. The pictures will
help you locate them.
Warning lights and gages can signal that
something is wrong before it becomes serious
enough to cause an expensive repair or
replacement. Paying attention to your warning
lights and gages could also save you or others
from injury.
Warning lights come on when there may be or
is a problem with one of your vehicle?s functions.
As you will see in the details on the next few
pages, some warning lights come on brie?y when
you start the engine just to let you know they
are working. If you are familiar with this section,
you should not be alarmed when this happens.
Gages can indicate when there may be or is a
problem with one of your vehicle?s functions.
Often gages and warning lights work together to
let you know when there is a problem with
your vehicle.
When one of the warning lights comes on and
stays on when you are driving, or when one of
the gages shows there may be a problem, check
the section that tells you what to do about it.
Please follow this manual?s advice. Waiting to
do repairs can be costly ? and even dangerous.
So please get to know your warning lights and
gages. They are a big help.
Your vehicle has a DIC that works along with the
warning lights and gages. See Driver Information
Center (DIC) on page 194 for more information.
