Hyundai Dashboard Lights Dublin OH | What Are Dashboard Lights?

On every vehicle, there is a series of dashboard lights—warning lights and indicators. These symbols act as your car’s communication system to alert you to different aspects of the car that may need your attention. If one pops up on your dash, consult your Hyundai vehicle’s owner’s manual or our Hyundai service center to learn more about the corresponding issues.

Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)

Often called the “Check Engine Light,” this symbol is one of the most important. This light will activate whenever there is a malfunction with the emission control system, the engine, or the vehicle’s powertrain.

This symbol looks like an engine. If this dashboard light pops up, have your Hyundai vehicle inspected as soon as possible. Driving with the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) on may cause damage to the emission control system, which may affect drivability or fuel economy.

Hyundai Dashboard Lights Dublin OH Electric Power Steering (EPS) Warning Light

Have you noticed a light that looks like a steering wheel with an exclamation point next to it on your dash? That’s your Electric Power Steering (EPS) Warning Light. This means that your power steering system is malfunctioning and can cause changes in your handling. Visit your Hyundai dealership’s service center for a checkup.

Low Fuel Level Warning Light

Ever been on a road trip and the gas pump symbol illuminates? This is your Low Fuel Level Warning Light. It activates when your Hyundai’s fuel tank is nearly empty. Once you add fuel, this light will disappear.

Driving with the fuel level below “E” may cause the engine to misfire and damage the catalytic converter.

Hyundai Dashboard Lights Dublin OH Low Tire Pressure Warning Light

This symbol looks like an exclamation point inside a horseshoe. It illuminates when one or more of your tires are significantly underinflated. To resolve this problem, visit your local gas station to put air in your tires. However, if the light pops up again or you’re stopping frequently for air, consult a service center.

High Beam Indicator Light

This indicator resembles a headlight and illuminates when your high beams are toggled. This symbol will also appear when the turn signal level is pulled towards you into the Flash-to-Pass position.

Hyundai Dashboard Lights Dublin OH Turn Signal Indicator Light

A left or right arrow will pop up on your dash when you use your turn signal. If any of the following occur, there may be an issue with the turn signal system:

  • The indicator illuminates but does not blink.
  • The indicator light blinks rapidly.
  • The indicator does not illuminate at all.

Have our dealership inspect your Hyundai vehicle if any of these conditions transpire.
