Q: Indicator light on.

asked by on January 14, 2016

The indicator light, with an exclamation point inside of a large red triangle, is on.

This is a Master Warning Light meaning to check your Multi-Information Display for a warning message. Once the warning message is corrected then the light should turn off. If for whatever reason you are unable to correct the cause of a warning message, you can enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who can help diagnose and correct the cause of the warning message.
