Car Dashboard Warning Lights

When a warning light pops up on your dashboard there is no need to go into panic mode. On Tuesday my Check Engine or Malfunction Indicator Light came on. The following list of warning lights are the most common lights used by auto manufacturers. Not all warning lights are universal. Always refer to your owner's manual when you're not 100% sure what the light indicates.

Many warning lights indicate that a fault has occurred inside the vehicle's system, but it doesn't pinpoint the item or system that has failed. In these cases, a code reader or scan tool can help determine the part that needs to be replaced. If an indicator light comes on your dash, you can visit your local AutoZone store to get a quick diagnosis test and get to the root of the issue.

After the diagnosis test the associate printed what part I needed. It was my ignition wires and spark plugs. It's that simple to get to the root of the problem. Since my Uncle is a mechanic he replaced out the parts and now my car is running smooth!

* If you don't have a family mechanic. You can take your vehicle to the Dealership, Goodyear etc. to get the issue repaired as well!

  3. Hello! Thanks for the post. People get very much tensed when they found any warning sign on dashboard, of course me too but it is not that much important to get worried. After reading it, I understand actually why we should not but it is human nature to get tensed with tiny issues and we cannot handle it. AutoZone store can easily find out what actually the problems can be and then after we can take possible steps to fix it. European auto specialist Appleton, WI.
