Whether you rely on your 2019 RAM 1500 for work or your 2019 Chrysler Pacifica to get you and your family around the Baxley, GA area, there are few worse things than seeing a dashboard warning light come on, especially if you don’t know what it means. Here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we want you to feel confident and knowledgeable when it comes to your car. To help, we’re offering some tips for identifying the various dashboard warning lights.

While we always recommend that you both stick to a regular maintenance schedule and that you consult your owner’s manual whenever you see a light you don’t recognize, we want to provide you with some information on how to identify and address unexpected issues.

Your car has many dashboard warning lights, and while some of the symbols are confusing, you can identify how serious an issue is by color. White, blue, and green lights are informational and don’t often require action.

Meanwhile, yellow dashboard lights show up when there’s an issue with any number of your vehicle’s parts and components. Most of us have seen the yellow check engine light before, but there are many you may not have seen but should be aware of. We recommend familiarizing yourself with the tire pressure light (a deflated looking tire), the electronics light (a battery), and the various braking lights (a ring inside parentheses). While a yellow light doesn’t always mean there’s an emergency, we recommend you address the issue as soon as possible.

Red dashboard lights, on the other hand, do require action. These warning lights indicate that an area of your vehicle is failing and in many cases, it’s not safe to continue driving. If you encounter a red light, take the appropriate measures to ensure your safety.
