What does it mean when a warning light appears on your car’s dashboard? For too many drivers, it means nothing at all. Some of us have had the experience of taking our cars to the shop to find out that the only problem with the vehicle is with the warning light itself rather than any of the safety features. However, those warning lights are there for reason, and they often warn of a problem with your vehicle’s safety systems.
Today’s cars are safer than ever, with modern innovations like rearview cameras and blind spot assistance. However, today’s drivers are not safer than ever. Modern drivers are often distracted, and modern drivers are quite likely to ignore the safety warnings from their own vehicles. On one hand this is understandable because of all of the redundancy systems our vehicles offer now, but on the other hand, the cost of ignoring a warning could be grievously high. Bad things sometimes do happen, and if you receive notice of a potentially dangerous situation but ignore that warning, then your level of responsibility is magnified, both in the eyes of the law and in your own mind.
Too many times, a dashboard warning light came will come on only to be ignored for a while. After a few weeks, or months, a quick look at the owner’s manual reveals the warming light is signaling and issue with the anti-lock braking system or a tire pressure issue. How important is that? You may wonder whether or not the warning light is truly significant. Your first response to the warning may be denial. After that, you may decide to do a little more research. You just are not sure what course of action to take. You can resist the necessity of having your car checked out or you and take the high road and see just what this warning light it is about. If you notice a warning light of any kind, please have your car seen. Chances are it could be a mechanical glitch. On the flipside, there could be a true error with your car that needs to be taken care of immediately.
