When our car’s dashboard lights start glowing, they’re trying to tell us something, but many of us aren’t getting the message. I have always called them the ‘idiot lights‘…and I was the idiot who had no clue what they meant! How about you? We are most likely to be ignorant of what tire pressure, brake system and electrical warning lights mean, according to a new survey.

Almost 20 percent of us are even unaware of what the low-fuel and temperature icons signify.

 Percentage of people who could not correctly identify lights:

-Tire pressure warning – 49 percent

-Brake system warning – 46 percent

-Cruise control activated – 42 percent

-Fog beams activated – 40 percent

-Electrical problem warning – 24 percent

-Low fuel warning – 17 percent

-Engine temperature warning – 17 percent

-Child safety lock activated – 11 percent

-Front air bag needs service – 10 percent

-Open door warning – 7 percent

Do you have a ‘warning light‘ currently on your dashboard, and you really have no idea what it means?
