Dashboard Warning Lights

  • Check Engine Light

Your check engine light could indicate any number of troubles, but it usually appears if there is an emission leak or electrical issue. These problems could be minor and may not lead to any serious problems while driving. However, there could be major mechanical issues like overheating or corrosion build up at work. The mechanics at Freehold Dodge can tell the difference.

  • Oil Light

Your Dodge's oil light, which looks like an oil can, pops up when the engine's oil pressure is low. An oil change can take care of the problem unless there's a more serious problem going on beneath your hood. In that case, your car could be too dangerous to operate without getting the right repairs. If you're driving when this light appears, pull over and call roadside assistance immediately. You shouldn't drive until this problem is corrected.

  • Charging Light

When a battery symbol appears on your dashboard, your charging system could be experiencing a problem and battery repair may be needed. Driving with this symbol on your dashboard could drain your battery, so turn off all nonessential car components.

  • Airbag Light

The airbag dashboard light looks like a passenger strapped into their seat with a circle in their lap, and it appears if there is a problem with your airbag system. Make a servicing appointment at Freehold Dodge if this light appears; otherwise, your airbags may not deploy properly if you are involved in a car accident.

  • Brake Light

Your brake light could appear for several reasons. First, your parking brake may be engaged while you're on the road. It could also indicate low brake fluid levels or a problem with the hydraulic system. Since brakes are an essential safety feature on any vehicle, you should take your car in for brake services as soon as you can.
