When your car requires attention from our service pros here at Mid County Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT, it might use dashboard warning lights to communicate its needs. Dashboard warning lights can point to a wide range of issues with your car that can be as benign as having a door that's ajar or as serious as engine trouble. So, it's important to understand what your car is trying to tell you when those warning lights come on so that you can act accordingly.

Here's an overview of common warning lights, what they mean, and what to do about them:

Check Engine Light

Your check engine light might illuminate for a variety of reasons, but it's only equipped to let you know that there's a problem, not what the problem is. That's where our team comes in. We have the tools to run diagnostics and find out what the specific issue could be. Your engine could have bad spark plugs, a loose gas cap, or even a bad catalytic converter. Always take your check engine light seriously and be sure to give us a call if it stays illuminated.

Oil Change Reminder

Your car might be equipped with a reminder to change your oil. If this light illuminates, we highly recommend scheduling an oil change with our team as soon as possible to help ensure that your engine has what it needs to keep running smoothly.

Battery Alert

Your battery warning light points to below-normal voltage levels and a malfunctioning charging system. Our team can check your battery terminals, gauge your battery's condition, and run voltage tests to get to the root of the problem.
