What Do My Kia Warning Lights Mean?

Dashboard Warning Lights

Kia warning lights symbols have been designed to alert Harvey drivers to maintenance and repair issues before they become larger problems. Find yourself wondering, “What do those Kia dash lights mean?” You’re not alone! The service center at Ray Brandt Kia covers the Kia warning lights symbols and when to take your car in for service below!

Common Kia Warning Lights Symbols

The first thing that drivers should do is find a Harvey and Marrero service center that’ll help with preventative maintenance and other repairs. You’ll want to know where to go should your Kia dash lights require special attention. The Kia dash lights can be divided into three general categories: engine lights, brake lights, and electronic/safety system lights. Here is what each of these Kia dashboard lights is telling you: 

Kia Dashboard Lights Symbols for Brakes:

  • The Brake System Lights are usually caused by low brake fluid and sensor issues with your ABS system. They also could mean your rotors and calipers are acting up. 

Kia Engine Lights

  • Coolant Temperature Warning: This means that your engine temperature isn’t regulating itself properly. Check to make sure you have enough coolant and that your fans are working properly. 
  • Reduced Engine Power: This means that your engine isn’t producing enough power. This is an issue that should be checked right away with the help of a New Orleans-area service center like Ray Brandt Kia. 
  • Service Vehicle: This variety of Kia dash light probably means you’ve got a low battery or another electrical issue. 

Other Kia Dashboard Lights

  • Traction Control Light: This light indicates a problem with your traction and stability control systems on your Kia. 
  • Cruise Control: Some Kia dash lights just mean something is functioning properly! In this case, the cruise control light tells you that cruise control is on. 
  • Washer Fluid Light: This means you need to refill your wiper fluid. 
  • Fog Lamp Light: You’re probably familiar with this light, which indicates that your brights are on. 
  • Airbag Fault: If you see this light, come to a service and Kia parts center to get your airbags checked and replaced if necessary. 
  • Security Alert: When this isn’t telling you that there’s a door open, it’s indicating another tech issue that should be fixed.
