Ford dashboard warning lights are nothing new, but car light symbols and the number of messages they indicate have increased.

Not all warning lights mean the same as they tend to vary depending on make and model. Referring to your Ford owner's manual will make it easier to understand and identify warning symbols. Basically, warning lights either tell you something is on, or indicate that a problem has occurred inside your car's system. At Larry H. Miller Lakewood Ford, our Ford automotive specialists use the latest diagnostic technology to determine where and what problem is causing the light to illuminate.

Ford Warning lights may vary in color in order to indicate the seriousness of a mechanical or system problem.
  • A red warning light indicates either a potentially serious problem or safety issue, which should be attended to immediately by a professional. However, a red light might also serve as a reminder to the driver about service maintenance.
  • When a yellow or orange light activates, it's usually a signal that a component needs servicing or repair. If the light flashes, it's important to contact a repair shop or dealership.
  • Green and/or blue dashboard lights only serve to let the driver know that a system is active and operating.
Ford Warning lights of a more serious nature:
  • Brake warning light: Usually in red text, indicates a serious problem with the your brakes (main or emergency brakes).
  • Temperature warning light: If the symbol is red, it indicates your engine has overheated. A blue light means the coolant temperature is too low. Red and blue blinking means there is an electrical wiring malfunction.
  • Oil warning light can indicate low pressure. 
  • Battery charging system warning light: means either a bad battery or a failing alternator.
It can all look a bit confusing and a little alarming but don't worry, they only light up to let you know the systems they relate to are working, before going out. The time to worry is when one of them stays on, or comes on when you're driving, indicating there's a problem.
