Learn about the Various Warning and Indicator Lights in Your Mazda

Seeing a warning light pop up on your dashboard can often create a sudden moment of fear; our staff members at Mazda of Milford are experienced in that regard. When that happens, how often are you able to fully understand what is trying to be communicated? With so many different symbols and indicator lights, sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with meanings. Fortunately we're able to boil this down to three different categories, based on color, and take a closer look at what each of these warning signs are actually hinting at.

While each Mazda model at our Milford showroom offers a slightly different range of warning lights, these are the most consistent across our inventory. The red light indicators are particularly focused on urgent issues that could be impacting you and your vehicle, such as an open door or truck, low oil, brake issues, and air bag malfunctions. The more frequent yellow warnings draw your attention to potential service issues, such as the check engine, low fuel, and antilock brake system malfunctions. Lastly, green lights refer to systems that are engaged, such as cruise control or a exterior light indicator.

Now that you know what each light generally means in your Mazda vehicle, you'll find it easier to understand exactly what it means when it's trying to communicate with you. If yours is suffering from a yellow or red warning light, be sure to make your way to our dealership to follow up with our service team. No matter if you're from New Haven, Hamden, Bridgeport or Fairfield, we're prepared to be the reliable solution that sends you home satisfied!
