When you’re cruising down the streets of Palm Coast, Flagler County, and Bunnell, the last thing you want to see is one of those dashboard lights come on. Although it’s sometimes something common like a turn signal indicator or high beam light, there’s always a chance it’s indicating a problem. There are quite a few warning lights all across your dash. Do you know what they all mean?
Ford has made their dashboard lights incredibly intuitive and easy to understand, but that doesn’t mean everyone will instantly recognize them. That’s why it’s important you familiarize yourself with your Ford vehicle’s dashboard lights before you have one come on. Find out what the dashboard symbols in your Ford vehicle mean by following the guides available on this page.
Warning lights are the most important lights you need to look out for on your dash. These are the symbols that mean there’s a problem somewhere with your vehicle. They are usually depicted in warm colors like red, orange, or yellow, so keep that in mind if you can’t remember what the symbol itself means.
Although warning lights mean you need to take some kind of action, they do vary quite a bit in severity. Some indicate problems that you can easily take care of yourself, such as the seatbelt light reminding you to buckle up, while others may require the help of a qualified service technician, such as the anti-lock brake warning light.
Not all dashboard lights in your Ford vehicle indicate a problem. Some of them just let you know certain features are engaged. Just about every driver assistance system in your vehicle will have a corresponding indicator light to let you know they’re activated. One example of this would be your cruise control or Adaptive Cruise Control, which are represented by distinct lights.
These lights are typically depicted in cool colors like blue and green. When you see a light that color come on, you probably don’t have anything to worry about. Just make sure the activated feature is one that you actually want turned on at that moment. If not, they’re always easy to deactivate. In short, none of these lights should require you to take your car in for service.
