The information below about warning lights is focused on the Volkswagen Jetta. Take a look to find out about a few of the key warning signs that indicate your vehicle might be in need of some attention.   

Tire Pressure Monitoring

During your travels, you might notice a yellow symbol that's made up of a tire and an exclamation point. It's telling you that one or more of your tires is low on air pressure. You'll want to have the issue checked out as soon as possible.


If your airbags are not functioning the way they're supposed to or they've been disabled, you'll see this yellow light. It's an illustration of a person wearing a seat belt juxtaposed with an inflated airbag.  

Steering System

The steering system uses a yellow or red light. You'll be able to recognize it due to its resemblance to a standard steering wheel. If the light comes on and stays on, the power steering is failing. If the light is blinking, there's a steering system malfunction. No matter what the light is doing, the best thing for you to do is pull over and call for help.

Check Engine/Engine Malfunction

Whenever there's an issue with the operation of your engine, this yellow light that uses the image of an engine block will appear on the dashboard. Be sure to visit a certified technician as soon as possible to prevent any serious damage from occurring.


The alternator looks like a typical car battery and is red in color. Its job is to let you know that the voltage output coming from the alternator is low. This will result in electric power failure.

Anti-lock Braking System

This symbol uses the yellow initials, ABS. It will alert you that there's a malfunction with the Anti-lock Braking System.

Low Fuel

When your fuel level is low, a yellow fuel pump will become illuminated. You'll want to find a gas station right away to fill your tank.
