As a hybrid electric vehicle owner, it's important to know what to do when the dashboard warning light comes on. These warning lights can indicate a variety of issues, ranging from minor problems to potentially serious ones. In this blog post, we'll discuss what you should do when you see a warning light on your dashboard.
The dreaded "Check Hybrid System" dash warning on a hybrid electric vehicle
What to do when the dash warning light comes on
1. Don't panic
The first thing to remember is not to panic. While the warning light may seem alarming, it's usually an indicator that something needs attention, but not necessarily an emergency. Keep calm and continue driving to a safe location or pull over to assess the situation.
2. Pull over if necessary
If the warning light is red or flashing, pull over to a safe location immediately. Continuing to drive with a red or flashing warning light can cause further damage to your vehicle or even result in an accident. It's always better to err on the side of caution.
3. Take action
Ignoring the light won't make it go away. If you're clever with cars, you may be able to make the warning light disappear for a while. But hiding the problem doesn't solve it.
