Some things in life go together without question. Peanut butter and jelly. The state of Texas and football. Your Toyota 4Runner and its dashboard lights. The intricacies of your off-road-ready SUV may sometimes feel like a foreign language regardless of how long you’ve been driving—which is why the Vic Vaughan Toyota of Boerne team is here to ease your mind when you’re behind the wheel.
The flow of real-time information plays a pivotal role in the performance of your Toyota 4Runner. Pertinent info is displayed through a variety of lights, typically either bright red or yellow. Depending on the sign, these lights could convey anything from pinpointing urgent matters to alerting you to the functionality of one or more systems.
The two types of dashboard lights you’ll see each time you drive include warning lights and indicators:
With that being said, below are five warning lights and indicators to always keep an eye out for.
When your Automatic High Beam lamps are activated, this indicator switch will light up. The symbol is designated to alert the driver to its features running in real time. This system uses camera sensors placed in the windshield to adjust the lighting dependent on vehicles in front of the 4Runner.
The Eco Driving Indicator light will switch on when the driver has selected the Eco Driving Mode. When
driving with this mode, decreased acceleration will allow for better fuel efficiency when traveling long distances.
The Low Engine Oil warning light will illuminate once the 4Runner has detected oil levels that fall below its recommended threshold. When this warning light comes on, we suggest bringing your vehicle to our service center as soon as you can.
Similar to the Low Engine Oil warning light, the Low Fuel Level light will show on the 4Runner dashboard once the remaining fuel tank dips below 3.5 gallons. Do not let the SUV run until empty; stop for gas as soon as you can.
Lastly, the Slip Indicator Light is an imperative warning light to watch out for. There could be a variety of reasons leading to this warning, including malfunctions with the Trailer Sway Control System, Downhill Assist Control System, Hill-Start Assist Control System, and more. Ignoring this light could potentially lead to a collision if not properly diagnosed.
By following the Toyota 4Runner dashboard lights guide the team at Vic Vaughan Toyota of Boerne has put together, we hope you’re able to better understand the intricacies of your off-road-ready SUV. We’re always around to answer your questions, so contact us today to learn more.
