What do the green lights mean in the dash?

While your dash contains a number of red and orange lights, it also has several green lights. Green is used to tell you that they’re not critical warnings, but still provide important information.

  • Turn Signals and Hazard Lights: The corresponding turn signal will light up on the dash when turning. If your hazard lights are on, both will flash at the same time.

  • Lights On Indicator: This light simply tells you that the headlights are on.

  • Cruise Control Main Indicator: This light tells you that cruise control is on.

  • Cruise Control Indicator: This light informs you that you have set the cruise control and it is operational.

  • Fog Light Indicator: This light illuminates if your fog lights are on (if your car has them).

  • Immobilizer System Indicator: This light will flash if they key inserted into the ignition is not programmed correctly and the car’s fuel pump will be disabled.
