"What Does This Light Mean?" Subaru Warnings and Indicator Lights

Nothing ruins your Monday morning commute like seeing an indicator light appear on your dashboard. Some indicators are self-explanatory, like the windshield washer fluid light, but others aren't quite as obvious. Below, you'll find a chart of Subaru indicator lights to help you determine what issue your vehicle may be having. This information is also available in your owner's manual.

If you're uncertain what to do once you know what the light is for, please bring it in to our service center here at Holmgren Subaru. Our highly-trained automotive technicians will determine the nature of the problem and go over your options with you.

And try not to worry. Oftentimes an indicator which seems worrisome ends up being very minor. The best way to tell, however, is to let one of our professional techs take a look. While you're here, relax in our well-appointed waiting area and enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and television.

We're located in North Franklin, CT, just a short drive from the nearby areas of Hartford, Middletown, New London, and Norwich, CT, and would love to serve you soon.
