Dashboard Warning Lights Are More Than Just Annoying

November 26th, 2017 by

All drivers have to deal with dashboard warning lights. While we may find them annoying, they are an essential tool for keeping our cars running smoothly and safely. While not all dashboard warning lights indicate major problems with our car, it is important to address them. Here are the meanings of some dashboard lights:
• Door Ajar- This light indicates that one of your cars doors or trunk is not closed properly. It is important to make sure all doors are closed if not you could have an interior light on and it will drain your car’s battery.
• Tire Pressure- This light indicates that one or more of your tires is losing air pressure. It is important to check and make sure your tires are properly inflated, or you run the risk of a tire blowing out.
• Washer Fluid- This light indicates that you are low on washer fluid. It is important to maintain proper washer fluid level to ensure that you can see the road properly.

We at Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines want to make sure all drivers properly maintain their cars and if you have a dashboard light concern come see us anytime.
