All About Car Service Indicator Lights - main image

Service indicator lights exist to let the driver know when the vehicle needs general maintenance. The service indicator lights can inform the driver when the oil needs to be changed, when basic components such as air filters and exhaust systems need to be inspected, and when parts such as the brakes should be replaced.

Every automaker has a different service indicator system. Different manufacturers provide different information to the driver, and base their maintenance schedule on varying factors. To learn more about the service indicator light in your vehicle, check out our guide below.

Car service indicator lights for different manufacturers

You should always pay attention to your service indicator light and maintenance schedule, and have your car inspected when the lights come on. To keep the service indicator light from being a hassle, you can schedule an inspection at home or at your office with one of the trustworthy technicians from YourMechanic.
