2019 Audi Q8 Dashboard Symbols

If you're traveling the streets of Devon or Malvern and notice a dashboard symbol illuminate on your 2019 Audi Q8 dashboard, you may be wondering what to do next. Though these symbols are designed to keep your vehicle safe and reliable, not all of them are a cause for alarm, so it's important to know the difference.

Drivers in Devon and Malvern can learn more about the 2019 Audi Q8 dashboard symbols and lights with this helpful guide.

Red Warning Lights

While not all of the dashboard lights indicate a malfunction in your vehicle, the red warning lights relate to vital systems that should be inspected as soon as possible.

Here are a few of the common red warning lights:

  • Brake warning light: This symbol is BRAKE and relates to your braking system and components. If this light is on, it could simply mean that your parking brake is engaged or your brake fluid is low, both of which are quick fixes, but it could also mean that there's a malfunction in your braking system that should be inspected.
  • Coolant light: Your engine coolant is used to keep your engine functioning at a healthy temperature. The coolant light monitors the level of your coolant and alerts you if it gets dangerously low, so if the light comes on, it's best to check your coolant level immediately to avoid overheating.
  • Engine oil light: The engine oil light looks like an oil can and monitors the oil level within your engine. If this light is on, it could mean your oil is low and your engine is vulnerable to damage. In this case, it's best to pull over and check your engine oil, refilling if necessary. If the light stays on, have your vehicle checked by a technician.

Yellow Indicator Lights

Yellow indicator lights don't require immediate attention like red warning lights, but they do indicate that there may be an issue with a system.

Here are some yellow indicator lights:

  • Tire pressure light: Your tire pressure light looks like an exclamation point with parentheses around it, and it monitors the tire pressure. If this light is on, it could mean that one or more of your tires are low and need to be refilled. A tire with low pressure is vulnerable to a blowout, so be sure to pull over and check your tire pressure, refilling as necessary.
  • Check engine light: The check engine light can mean many different things, ranging from an emissions issue to a major malfunction within your engine. Because of this, it's important to have your engine inspected by a technician to be sure that it's safe.
