Is your car’s dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree? Well, stop driving and call your mechanic ASAP! Here’s a quiz to test your knowledge about car warning lights

If you are new to driving a vehicle, you might have wondered what the lights on your dashboard mean at some point. Almost all modern cars have dashboards with a set of symbols that light up in red, orange, or green. These are called warning lights and they are your car’s way of communicating with you. While most of these symbols are self-explanatory, some of them are confusing and even downright funny!

Ignoring these warning lights can often lead to trouble. If you have a flashing light on your dashboard, it means that one or several essential components in your car are either activated, deactivated, malfunctioning, or need replacing. And if your dashboard lights up like a Christmas tree, the chances are you will end up being stranded on the side of a busy road.

Whether you are a beginner or a pro at driving, it is essential to know what these warning lights mean. Here’s a simple quiz to test your knowledge about the various warning lights in your car.
