From the instrument cluster to the infotainment system, the dashboard on your Subaru is loaded with features and information. Some of it is a friendly reminder that some features are turned one, while others are alerts that your vehicle needs service.

To help drivers in Ithaca tell the difference, Maguire Subaru compiled a collection of helpful Subaru dashboard light guides.

What's a Dashboard Light Guide?

A dashboard light guide explores some of the most important icons on your dashboard. They'll explain what the lights look like, analyze what they mean, and give you a word of advice on how you should react.

What Our Guides Explore

While there may be similarities between the design and layout, each Subaru vehicle's dashboard is unique. That's why every one of our guides focuses on one specific Subaru vehicle.

Next, many of them break things down by color. For example, they'll explain the difference between a red light and a yellow light. The one constant between all our guides though is that they dive into great detail about what the most significant lights on your dashboard represent.

How Dashboard Light Guides Can Help You

Knowing what your dashboard lights mean can serve you in two ways. First, it can help keep your car in good condition. By knowing which lights are maintenance reminders, you'll know when to schedule an appointment and keep everything running smoothly under the hood.

The second benefit is that it can help you have a safer drive. If there's a problem with something like your brakes, power steering system, or tire pressure, you'll know it right away and what the best course of action is.
