Common Land Rover Dashboard Warning Lights
- Auto High-Beam Assist: A small green light on your dashboard will indicate that your lights are set to automatic! This means that your high beams will come on automatically when it’s dark out and there aren’t other drivers in your field of view, and shut off automatically when those conditions are no longer true.
Battery: If a red battery warning light stays on after your car has been started, it may be a sign that your vehicle’s battery is not charging correctly. Alternately, if you see the “Smart Key Battery Low” warning, it’s time to change the battery in your key fob.
Brakes: The red brake fluid symbol—which reads “BRAKE” in all capital letters—lets you know if brake fluid is low. If it stays on after more fluid is added, there may be more complex brake issues in store. If you see a yellow brake warning light, it’s probably trying to tell you that your brake pads are worn down.
Critical Warning Message: If you a triangle with an exclamation mark, your Land Rover has an important update that you should read as soon as possible. Red warnings are especially urgent, while amber warnings should simply be dealt with in the near future. The content of these warning messages will vary; the message that you receive will detail the specific nature of the problem.
Engine/Transmission: Various lights indicate issues with your engine. The basic engine/transmission light will light up when you start the vehicle, and it should shut off shortly thereafter. If it stays on, you probably have a problem with your emissions.
Engine Temperature: The red engine temperature warning light lets you know if the powertrain is overheating. Pull over at the earliest opportunity, and give the engine ample time to cool (at least 20 to 30 minutes) before you open the hood.
Tires: If your tire pressure is low, your tire pressure monitoring system will activate. At this point, pull over to inflate your tires or change them as soon as possible. If it’s red, instead of the usual yellow, one or more of your tires may have rapidly deflated. A flat tire is generally indicated by an exclamation point in the middle of semi-circle, with treads visible at the bottom.
Oil Pressure: The red low oil pressure warning shows that it may be necessary to check engine oil levels and top up if necessary. While this isn’t an oil change symbol per se, drivers who see this warning light may wish to have their oil levels inspected at our service center.
