What do VW dashboard warning lights mean?

Your gauge cluster is your lifeline when it comes to figuring out speed, making sure your vehicle isn’t having overheating issues and keeping track of your vehicles condition. You probably understand that a quickly blinking indicator light in your 2015 VW Jetta means you need to change a bulb, but when a light comes on in your dash that you’ve never seen before it can be intimidating. What do dashboard warning lights mean and how do you know when it’s a simple issue or something more serious?

First, you should know the warning lights on your dash follow a color system similar to stop lights: green is okay, yellow is a warning, and red is an emergency. Most green lights are used to indicate that some function is engaged, such as cruise control or lane assist. Yellow lights typically indicate that a monitoring system isn’t working properly or a fluid needs to be filled. Red lights are reserved for failures which could make continuing to drive your vehicle extremely dangerous. Many newer Volkswagen models often give audible warnings for the most important warnings, but any time a red light appears on your dashboard you should stop your vehicle as soon as possible.

Here is a gallery of the most common dashboard warning lights for Volkswagen models:

It’s our duty to recommend you bring in a vehicle any time a yellow warning light is indicating a monitoring system isn’t working, especially if it’s as important as the engine or your oil. Driving a vehicle which has a yellow light on can be dangerous, but in many cases you still have time to bring your vehicle in. When a red light is on or flashing you should stop your vehicle as soon as possible and consider it unsafe to drive.
