The area in front of your steering wheel is capable of providing you with lots of information on how your car is running. What do all those symbols mean though? To help drivers in Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton decode them, Maguire Kia organized a collection of dashboard light guides.

Why Offer Dashboard Light Guides

We strive to help our customers in every way possible, from finding the right car to financing it and providing you with quality service and maintenance. Offering more information on how your Kia runs is just one more way you try to do that for you.

What Do Dashboard Light Guides Cover

Every dashboard light guide shines the spotlight on a different Kia vehicle. While there are lots of similarities between the way the lights look and what causes them to turn on, we believe that it's best to look at each model individually.

So, if you drive an SUV like the Kia Sportage or a sedan like the Kia Forte, you'll see dashboard lights that are specific to your model.

Once you find the right guide for your car or SUV, you'll be able to see what some of the most important lights look like, what they mean, and what you should do. Many of our guides are broken up into sections based on color. This is to show you how different colored lights often require a different course of action.

How Dashboard Light Guides Can Help

Once you know what these lights mean and what you can do, you'll have a more informed, more dependable, and safer drive. For example, continuing to drive without enough oil or transmission fluid can cause more problems under the hood. Driving with faulty brakes isn't safe. Once you know what symbols represent which problems, you'll know what to do next.

So, the next time a red or yellow light pops up, you'll be able to tell what's going on with your Kia vehicle and know if you should make an appointment with the service center, head straight there, or pull over and call for a tow truck.
