Toyota Dashboard Lights and What They Mean

Most Coppell drivers know what the battery and Toyota check engine lights mean, but here is a look at other common Toyota dashboard lights and their meanings.

Most Common Symbols 

  • Cruise Control: Cruise control or adaptive cruise control is engaged. 
  • Door Ajar: Your door, trunk, or hatchback has not been closed properly.
  • Service Vehicle: The Toyota service checks light often indicates a variety of non-engine system issues. It can also kick on when any of the individual icons stop working.
  • High Beam Light Indicator: Your brights are on.
  • Washer Fluid Reminder: Your washer fluid is low, and you need to refill it.

Safety Symbols

  • Airbag Fault: The airbag system has defaulted and needs servicing.
  • Coolant Temp Warning: Your coolant levels are too low, your fan isn’t functioning properly, or there is a coolant leak.
  • Reduced Power Warning: This typically means that one of the engine’s components is malfunctioning.
  • Traction Control Light: Your TCS is activated for safer driving in Carrollton or any time that you encounter hazardous road conditions.
  • Transmission Temperature: This is above normal, and you should check for coolant levels, fan operation, the radiator cap, and leaks. 


  • ABS: The anti-lock braking system prevents wheels from locking while you’re braking.
  • Brake Fluid: Your levels are low.
  • Brake Lights Warning: The exterior brake light bulbs are not working properly. Get this checked at our service center near Grapevine immediately, because this is a safety concern for you and other drivers on the road.
