What Do My Dashboard Lights Mean?

Main Banner

Your dashboard indicator lights are one of the most important driving tools within your Ford in Grand Junction. These lights provide crucial information regarding how the different systems of your vehicle are performing, alert you when certain features are being used and give warnings when a feature is experiencing issues. You should always know what these dashboard lights mean and how you can solve the issue. The staff at Western Slope Ford, your home for your new Ford in Grand Junction CO, wants to help you figure out what some of the most important Ford dashboard lights mean, so you can stay aware of the health of your vehicle.

ABS Light

When you see your ABS light, this is a sign that your Anti-lock Brake computer has to be examined. Bring your Ford in Grand Junction to our factory-trained service team at Western Slope Ford to get it checked out.

Battery Light

This light lets you know when your battery’s voltage is too low, meaning that it isn’t charging how it should. Check out the terminals of your battery along with the battery itself and if you can’t find the problem, bring your vehicle into our service department.

Brake System

This will be illuminated if your parking brake is being engaged when your vehicle is running. If you see this when you’re driving, make sure that your parking brake isn’t engaged. If it isn’t, then your brake fluid might be low or your brakes could be experiencing other issues. If that is the case, bring your vehicle in Western Slope Ford’s service department to get your Ford in Grand Junction checked out and repaired.

Coolant Warrning

This will give you the heads up if your Ford in Grand Junction starts to overheat. Overheating causes your vehicle a number of issues and could mean that you’re low on coolant. It could also mean that your fan or radiator is having problems.

Oil Warrning

If your oil is dangerously low or getting close to empty, then this dashboard light will illuminate. This will cause problems with your engine, so make sure you check your oil check and changed in our service department.

Tire Warning

This light will illuminate when the system feels that one or more of your tires is getting low on pressure. You should probably pull over and thoroughly check each one of your tires to see if there are any holes or dents that could lead to issues. Find a nearby gas station where you can refill the deflating tires.

This list is just a small section of the dashboard lights that may illuminate that area in your Ford in Grand Junction. If you notice these lights, then bring your vehicle into your Ford Grand Junction CO home, Western Slope Ford, and allow our service team to take a look at what is causing the issue.
