Today’s cars may seem similar to the cars of the days gone by-4 wheels, an engine and doors. Underneath its skin is another story. Along with the vastly improved fuel economy, safety ratings, and multi-media systems that modern cars are expected to come with, comes the obligatory need for more sensors and electronic gizmos to keep it all working together in a user-friendly package.

Along with all these extra sensors, comes the need for more warning lights on your dashboard or gauge cluster. Some of these warning lights have been around for a very, very long time and are pretty straight-forward; whilst others are fairly new to the market and not exactly self-explanatory.

According to a recent survey done by Schrader International, 43 per cent of the people that took the survey could not recognize the symbol for low tire pressure. Needless to say, a low tire pressure warning is serious business and is a large safety hazard at worst and largely reduced gas mileage at best.

Between the different manufactures, there can be slight differences but for all the major lights, they’re the same. As the long weekend approaches and summer road trips being, take some time to check out the gallery above to find out what some of these essential lights mean.
