Your car’s dashboard can communicate a world of important information about the safety of your car.

Everything from blown bulbs, to low oil levels and faulty batteries can be communicated through the warning lights on your dashboard.

In fact, there’s over 60 warning lights that can highlight any dangers. We’ve listed them below. You might be surprised how many you didn’t already know.
