5 Most Important Warning Lights on Your Dashboard

5 Most Important Warning Lights on Your Dashboard

Motorists should not ignore the following five warning lights once triggered, as doing so could have dire consequences. Engine temperature light The engine temperature light is triggered when the temperature climbs above a safe level. The engine may be overheating, the cooling mechanisms have failed or the car's computer has misinterpreted a fault in the engine temperature sensor.
