What Does The Light On My Dashboard Mean?

E-Class dashboard

Whether you’re on a short trip to the store or on a long holiday drive outside of Phoenix, few things can put a damper on the experience like a blinking symbol on the dash. Ultimately, it’s rarely something to get worked up about. Your vehicle is simply trying to let you know what’s going on under the hood. Although it can feel like pulling apart the Gordian Knot, we’ve created a short guide to help you cut through the tangles and answer, “What does the light on my dashboard mean?” This guide is particularly catered to the refined Mercedes-Benz system, so if you have more questions about how to keep your luxury vehicle running its smoothest around Gilbert, check out our service tips. Read on with our specialists for an overview of your warning system lights.

Dashboard Warning Lights

Most Tempe drivers are familiar with several classic symbols, including the iconic check engine light and the oil pressure warning. The tire pressure light and the battery change/low battery lights are also relatively common, and no less recognizable.However, as cars have become more sophisticated, so have their diagnostic tools. And thanks to Mercedes-Benz innovation, your vehicle is a better communicator than ever before. Now it’s just a matter of speaking the same language:

  • Brake Issues
    • Traction Control or ESP — If you come across unstable sections of road, this light will indicate that your electronic stability system has engaged to compensate.
    • Brake System — A brake system light can indicate one of several issues: low brake fluid, an ABS issue, or a problem with the brakes themselves.
  • Engine Issues
    • Coolant Temp Warning — Abnormal coolant temperature can be caused by low coolant levels, malfunctioning fan, or a coolant leak.
    • Reduced Power Warning — A malfunctioning part of your engine resulting in low output will trigger this light. Schedule a service to have your engine inspected by certified technicians, and if need be, have the part replaced with genuine OEM parts thanks to your local parts department.
    • Service Vehicle — When a part of your electrical system is malfunctioning, like the battery, starter, or alternator, your Mercedes-Benz Service Vehicle light will come on. While none of those typically need immediate caution on your travels, you should get them diagnosed as soon as possible.
  • Safety Alerts and Routine Reminders
    • Fog Lamp — If you’ve turned on your fog lights and left them lighting your way, this symbol will help remind you to turn them off.
    • Security Alert — This is the “door ajar” light. It also come son if your ignition switch is locked, indicating a tech malfunction.
    • Washer Fluid Reminder — This light simply means that the windshield washer fluid is low and it’s time for a refill.
    • Airbag Fault — A fault in an airbag system is serious. Driving without a functional airbag can be very dangerous in case of an accident. This light is here to alert you as soon as the system becomes nonfunctional.

Remember, no amount of careful attention is a substitute for regular maintenance. Find out what’s included with Mercedes-Benz Service A* and Mercedes-Benz Service B*, so you can prevent major issues on the roads near Mesa and Scottsdale.
