Subaru Warning Lights: A Guide to Understanding What Your Subaru is Telling You

When it comes to the Subaru you drive, the worst kind of problem is one you aren't aware of. Thankfully, Subaru warning lights located on your instrument panel are put in place and designed to make you aware of any issue directly when it occurs, so you can have it addressed with the help of the Subaru certified specialists here at Kenny Ross Subaru before any lasting damage is inflicted on your vehicle.

So what can you expect with the instrument panel holding over 50 different icons that may glow when influenced over affected? It's first important to note a clear distinction between the two types of lights you may see pop up, the indicator lights and warning lights. An indicator light is there to remind you of something you influenced in your vehicle, such as having opened your door or turned your headlights on. A warning light is the key signal when it comes to problems in your vehicle, such as signaling a need for an oil change, low gas, malfunctions with the ABS braking system and much more.

These lights are a reminder that your vehicle requires consistent maintenance in order to succeed, and you can prevent having to deal with pop-ups along the way by sticking to a regular service schedule as outlined in your owner's instruction manual here at Kenny Ross Subaru. But to keep yourself fully informed on what is happening in your vehicle and what a signal is trying to tell you, we invite you to review the icons below, where you can click for additional details and what may be transpiring in your Subaru.


This is an invaluable resource when it comes to the warning lights in your Subaru model, and a great place to freshen up on what your vehicle is up against. Please remember that our certified technicians are highly trained to diagnose and solution your vehicle's ailments in our Subaru service center, so when a light does indeed pop on, our team is immediately who you should consult.
