The following warning lamps and indicators alert you to a vehicle condition that may become serious. Some lamps illuminate when you start your vehicle to make sure they work. If any lamps remain on after starting your vehicle, refer to the respective system warning lamp for further information.
Some warning indicators appear in the information display and function the same as a warning lamp, but do not display when you start your vehicle.
