What Do All These Lights Mean?

Dash Lights Banner

Trying to understand your warning, safety and other lights can be difficult and sometimes stressful, but we've got your back here at Oak-land Ford Lincon.

These lights aren't always a warning to indicate a failure, but you can often tell by the characteristics of the light. If the light is bright red or yellow, and is either flashing or staying solid it means the issue needs addressing ASAP. However, the dash also has many green and blue lights that indicate normal features that are operating.

Get to know what all of these lights mean so you can take action in the most effective and efficient way.
