Our cars can't really talk to us (not yet, anyway), so the best way for them to communicate that something is wrong is through a series of warning lights. While your vehicle might not be sophisticated enough for speech, it is sophisticated enough to trigger warning lights to alert you to myriad issues, so it's important to know what they mean so that you know what your car is trying to say. Here's a quick warning light overview to help.

What Do My Kia Vehicle's Warning Lights Mean?

Broadly, the warning lights in your car warn you of some form of malfunction. These span a wide range when it comes to severity. Some simply tell you that you're low on a type of fluid or that you have a door ajar. Others indicate that you have a bigger problem that needs immediate attention.

Your owner's manual can give you a more in-depth look at what these warning lights mean if something pops up and you're not sure what to do about it. Of course, you can also count on our Kia service center serving Leesburg to help.

Common Warning Lights

  • ABS Light: This indicates a problem with your anti-lock brake system, which should be evaluated as soon as possible.
  • Check Engine Light: This can point to a variety of malfunctions, so it's important not to ignore it. If your check engine light comes on, don't drive your vehicle and give us a call so that we can help.
  • Engine Oil Pressure Light: This light means that your oil pressure is low. Topping up your oil usually fixes the problem, but if it doesn't, don't drive. Give our service center serving Sterling and Chantilly a call.
