Your Volkswagen Tiguan Dashboard Light Guide
There are typically two types of dashboard symbols/warning lights on the Volkswagen Tiguan.
Red Lights. These are serious alerts. When one comes on, pull over and set up service ASAP…

Yellow Lights. These are not-quite-so-serious warnings. You still want to set up an appointment, but you might not need to do it right away. If you need any further clarification, you can reach out to us today…

Here’s a closer look at some of the red lights that you might notice on your VW Tiguan front dashboard.

• Coolant Warning: Low coolant levels or high coolant temperatures are the name of the game here. This symbol looks like a thermometer in a shallow pool of water, and it’s pretty serious.

• Tire Pressure Monitoring System: All the new-production cars on American roads are strictly required to come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. If yours is triggered (whether that’s by a low-pressure tire or an outright flat), it’s going to show up as an exclamation point within a tire.

• Charging System Failure: Without your VW Tiguan charging system, your vehicle is basically useless. Not only is it responsible for important systems, like the air conditioner and the audio interface, but you won’t even be able to start your engine without it. It looks completely like a battery.

• Hood Open: This VW icon looks like a car with its hood open, and it’s telling you to close yours!

• ABS/Brake System Malfunction: An exclamation point within a circle denotes an ABS or Brake System Malfunction (however, don’t confuse it with the TPMS icon that we mentioned above).

• Oil Pressure Warning: Driving with improper oil pressure is extremely bad for your engine, not to mention dangerous. This dashboard warning icon is a symbol that looks like an oil can with a drop coming out of it. When it comes on, pull over and give us a call immediately…
And, here’s a brief overview of some of the yellow lights that you might notice, as well. Check them out:
 Washer Fluid Low
 Automatic Transmission Malfunction
 Low Fuel Level
 Bulb Failure
 Electric Power Control
 Airbag Warning
 And many more!
