Your vehicle's dashboard has lots of lights that turn on when there is an issue with your truck. If even one of these lights turns on while you are driving, it can be a cause for alarm. These warning lights are turned on by your vehicle's computer; the various parts of your vehicle send signals to the computer when there is an issue with your vehicle. Part of getting a truck maintenance service is getting your vehicle's computer systems checked and running a system analysis to make sure you do not get a false alarm from your dashboard.
Because modern vehicles contain more technology and features than ever, there can be multiple reasons why a particular dashboard light turns on, making it difficult to troubleshoot without the proper tools. When it comes to computer diagnostics, it is important to have an expert on your side when one or more of your dashboard lights turns on. We at Direct Truck & Auto Repair in San Bernardino are those repair experts. We can perform a computer diagnostic on your vehicle and use diagnostic trouble codes to determine which part of your vehicle needs attention.
What do all the lights on my dashboard mean?
If one or more of your dashboard lights turn on and you are in Riverside County, CA, San Bernardino County, CA, Orange County, CA, Los Angeles County, CA, Imperial County, CA or nearby, you can come to Direct Truck & Auto Repair for Maintenance Diagnostic, Electrical Diagnostic, and more. Whether you drive a Freightliner, Kenworth, Peterbilt, International, or something else, your dashboard lights have universal meanings that span all vehicle makes. Here is a brief explanation of what some of your dashboard lights mean:
This light could mean a number of things, like a loose fuel cap, a problem with your transmission, low oil pressure or overheating, or something else. If the light is steady, it is usually not a cause for immediate alarm (but you should bring your vehicle into an repair shop as soon as you can). If the light flashes, however, this indicates a very serious problem and you should stop driving immediately and give Direct Truck & Auto Repair a call at 909-746-0188 so we can run an engine diagnosis on your vehicle.
This light means there is an issue with your truck's oil pressure system. There is either not enough oil in your vehicle or your oil pump isn't circulating enough fluid to lubricate the surfaces inside your vehicle properly.
This light signals that the pressure in one or more of your tires is either too high or too low. Driving with high-pressure or low-pressure tires can cause further damage to your vehicle, so it is important to get this issue resolved as soon as possible. If you are in the 92410 area or nearby, you can come to Direct Truck & Auto Repair to rebalance your tire pressure.
