Know Your VW Warning Lights: When to Schedule Service

If one of your Volkswagen Tiguan or Volkswagen Jetta warning lights comes on, it’s important to know how to solve the problem! In some cases, the issue may just be the result of an error or a loose gas cap, but in other cases, you’ll need to visit a service center immediately. If you’re still trying to get a handle on all of your VW warning lights, here’s what you should know starting off:

  • Green VW dash lights are used to indicate that your daytime running lights or your shift lock is engaged. There’s actually no issue that needs attending to.
  • Yellow VW warning lights let you know that a possible issue has been detected. In most cases, you can keep driving without fear of an immediate breakdown, but you really shouldn’t push the envelope until you’ve had the chance to see the experts.
  • Red VW warning lights are used to indicate serious or even dangerous problems. In some cases, you’ll want to stop the car and pull over immediately. In other cases, it’s advisable to keep driving until you reach the Lithia service department.

So, when should you keep driving, and when should you stop immediately? For starters, note that if your AdBlue No Restart light (a half-full container pouring fluid) comes on, you’ll want to drive to the Lithia service center right away! If you turn the car off, it won’t restart, and you’ll need to call a tow.

If your oil pressure, coolant temperature, or transmission temperature is acting up, you’ll need to make a judgment call. Driving too long with any of these issues will cause lasting, often irreversible damage to your powertrain! However, if you’re within a mile or two of the Lithia service center, heading straight there can help you avoid the cost of a tow truck.

Remember, you can always contact us at (866) 963-2153 for instant expert guidance on your  Volkswagen dash light meanings.
