Jeep Wrangler Indicator Lights
The Jeep Wrangler is equipped with a number of indicator lights that simply let you know when a system or feature is on and/or in use. Some of the Wrangler’s indicator lights are:
- 4WD or AWD Light – If your Wrangler is equipped with 4WD or AWD mode, a light saying “4WD!” or “AWD!” will light up when they’re in use.
- High Beams Light – When you have your high beams on, a light shaped like a half circle with vertical lines will light up on the dashboard.
- Hill Descent Control Light – This feature helps maintain speed going downhill and, when engaged, shows up as a light shaped like a car going downhill next to a speed dial.
- Passenger Airbag Light – This light is different in that it lets you know when the passenger airbag is turned off.
- Tow/Haul Light – If your Wrangler is equipped with Tow/Haul mode, a light saying “TOW/HAUL” will light up on the dashboard.
Wrangler Warning Lights
In addition to the Jeep Wrangler’s many helpful indicator lights, there are many warning symbols that light up on your dashboard, indicating your Wrangler needs service. If you see any of the below signals, reach out to a Jeep service professional immediately:
- Antilock Braking System Light – If the antilock braking system is failing, a light saying “ABS” in a circle and parentheses will light up.
- Battery Light – When your battery or anything connected to your battery is experiencing a problem, a battery-shaped light will come up.
- Brake System Light – Your brake system is made up of several parts that can have problems, which will be indicated by circle with an exclamation point in it.
- Door Light – If one of your doors is ajar, a light showing a bird’s-eye view of a car with the doors open will light up.
- Engine Oil Light – Your engine oil is essential, so when there’s a problem with it, an oil can light will come up on the dashboard.
- Engine Light – A light shaped like an engine will pop up if your engine is overheating or experiencing another problem.
- Fuel Light – When you’re running low on gas, a light shaped like a fuel pump will light up, so you’ll have enough time to get yourself to get a gas station.
- Tire Pressure Monitor Light – If your tire pressure monitoring system detects that at least one of your tires is low on air, you’ll be warned via a light shaped like a tire with an exclamation point.
