The lights are generally colour coded, red, yellow or green
Ranging from minor to major, a host of things can trigger the engine light to come on in your vehicle, including:
- Loose Fuel Cap
- Brake fluid level is low or may be leaking
- Your coolant level is too low
- A fault with the coolant temperature sensor

- The battery/charging light will indicate a problem with the battery, where the Battery voltage level is below normal
- Spark Plug fault
- Emission control system malfunction
