Types of Dashboard Lights

There are two kinds of dashboard lights: warning lights and indicator lights. We will go over both of them in this guide. These are different types of lights with one thing in common: They indicate that your Tucson is trying to communicate with you.


Low Tire Pressure Light

Warning Lights

Warning lights are lights that tell you that your vehicle may need some maintenance or service. Some of these lights are more urgent than others, so getting them checked out is important.

Malfunction Indicator Lamp

The Malfunction Indicator Lamp or “check engine light” can mean a few different things. It looks like a line drawing of an engine. This light could mean that there is a malfunction in the emission control system or that your engine is misfiring.

Low Tire Pressure Warning Light

In your Tucson, there is a system that monitors your tire pressure. When this light comes on, it means that that your tire pressure is low. Fill your tires up and inspect them to see if there is possibly a leak or damage. This light looks like an exclamation point with tire treads underneath it and parentheses on either side.

Low Fuel Level Warning Light

While this warning light does not mean anything is malfunctioning, it does mean that your fuel level is low. This warning light looks like a fuel pump. When this comes on, you’ll need to fuel up as soon as possible. If you don’t, low fuel can lead to engine misfiring.


Indicator Lights

Indicator lights are nothing to worry about. They let you know that a feature of your vehicle is being used at that time. The lights are there to serve as both reminders and as a way to convey information to you.

High Beam Assist Indicator Light

This light tells you that your high beam assist function is on and automatic. It looks like a headlamp with four straight lines coming out of it and the word AUTO underneath it.

SPORT or SMART Mode Indicator Lights

The Sport or Smart mode indicator lights let you know which mode you’re driving in. To let you know which mode you’re using, the lights with the word SPORT or SMART in a box will light up.

IDLE STOP & GO Indicator Light

The Idle Stop and Go Indicator light lets you know that the system is working and active. The indicator light looks like an A with a curved arrow arching over it. When the engine starts, this light turns on to a white color.
