Learn About the Warning Lights on your Jeep 

We advise you to schedule a service appointment if you see of the indicators or similar listed below on your vehicle.

Tire Pressure Warning

How important is tire pressure? Very! Improperly inflated tires can negatively impact your driving performance and safety. When you see this warning light, it's good practice to check your pressure and ensure you have the proper PSI and that your tires aren't damaged.

Master Warning Light

This warning light implies there are one or more problems detected. Once this light appears, you can be certain another warning light will illuminate, providing context to the possible issues.

Oil Warning

This warning light is probably one of the most well-known. It appears when your oil is running low. This may indicate leakage or damage to your internal engine systems.

Check Engine Light

A bit of a catchall, the check engine warning light signifies there may be a variety of issues needing attention. When this light appears, it will kick out specific codes to provide details about the possible problems. 

Loose Gas Cap Warning

We all do it. When your brain is running a million miles a minute, it's easy to forget something. As they say, "haste makes waste." In this case, the waste is very real. When leaving your gas cap off, you risk causing your gasoline to evaporate or dirt and other debris to gain access to your fuel system. If you see this warning, pull over at your first and safest opportunity and right the mistake.

Battery Warning

Your car needs energy to perform. That is a fact. When your battery warning light comes on, it may indicate the end of your battery's lifespan, an issue with your battery terminals, or more. Schedule an appointment with our team, and we'll evaluate your battery system's health and make the necessary corrections to get your Jeep Compass back on the road.

Low Fuel Warning

This warning is just as it says. While you're checking out the sights in your new Jeep Grand Cherokee, you may forget to resupply your vehicle with the necessary fuel from time to time. It's a helpful warning, letting you know it's almost time to refuel

Brake Warning

The ability to charge ahead is fun, but being able to stop on a dime can save a life. When your brake warning light appears, it means your brake system needs some TLC. It's the perfect time to have our experts examine your Jeep Wrangler to ensure you're ready for anything that comes your way. We can replace your brakes or repair your brake system so that your next adventure is safe and sound

Engine Temperature Indicator

Your engine runs hot. We all know that. Fortunately, a sophisticated collection of mechanisms and fluids help ensure your engine maintains proper working condition. When this fails, and your engine temperature reaches inappropriate levels, your engine cooling system requires service. Don't wait to get your Jeep Cherokee the care it needs.

Engine Temperature Indicator

This warning indicates there's a problem with your transmission. Don't hesitate when you see this warning. Contact our Service Center and schedule an appointment immediately

Air Bag Warning

Your safety is crucial. The airbag warning light indicates there's a problem with this life-saving safety feature. Don't put yourself or your family at risk. Schedule an appointment with our team immediately

Electric Power Steering Error

This warning light indicates there's a problem with your electronic steering system. You may feel it when trying to navigate a curve in your Jeep Renegade, or it could indicate a new problem is on its way. Fortunately, you have a great team at your disposal that can help. Contact us right away.

Immobilizer Fault Indicator

This anti-theft warning lets you know there may be an issue with your immobilizer. Your immobilizer is a system that prevents your vehicle from being driven when the key fob isn't present. Sometimes it can be resolved by starting and then turning off the vehicle. If the issue persists, contact our team

Electric Park Brake Warning

This warning indicates there's a problem with your electric parking brake. When your vehicle is in motion, your parking brake should always be disengaged. When you see this warning symbol appear, it's best to get it serviced right away, so you don't cause damage to your vehicle or brake system.

Low Windshield Washer Fluid Indicator

Keep your vision clear. When this warning symbol comes on, it's past time to top off your washer fluid. If you notice your washer fluid is decreasing at a faster rate, it may indicate a leak in your system. Contact our dealership, and we'll help.

Electric Throttle Control Warning

This warning is one you should never ignore. It indicates there's a problem with the system reading the pressure you place on your accelerator. Because it feeds into many other systems, you should schedule a service appointment with us immediately.
