    Default QUIZ: Dashboard warning lights... what do they mean?

    The dashboard is the easiest way for a car to tell the driver about a problem, but when that dashboard light starts blinking do you know what it means?

    Oh dear only three out of five! but then one of them doesn't appear on my list of warning lights anyway!

    I wonder how many other people who actually check brake fluid, oil levels etc weekly actually believe the ECUs? Yes, I'd stop and check if a warning light came on - we can all suffer fluid cable breakages. But ECUs are not infallible. Mine repeatedly insists that there's a failur of the hill descent/ traction control and the airbag - bot checked repeatedly and functioning normally!

    Probably because there wasn't one...it was the symbol for the engine malfunction.

    I got 2 out of 5! I know at least two of those symbols do not exist on my dashboard though. And even if I don't know what precise problem it's referring to, I would know from the symbol that it is some kind of issue with the battery/oil/engine/handbrake etc., I don't know the specifics but I am rubbish with mechanics and I would seek help from a professional if required.
