Low Tire Pressure Warning Light

When you turn on your Subaru, expect to see a low tire pressure warning light illuminate for two seconds to ensure that the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is functioning properly. If everything is working fine, the light will turn off. If the light stays on, you'll want to confirm that your Subaru tires are properly inflated to your model's specifications. If you notice a more serious issue with your TPMS, schedule Subaru service as soon as you can.

Check Engine Light

If you notice a check engine symbol illuminated on your dashboard, we recommend taking in your Subaru in for a diagnosis immediately, as driving could lead to further damage. Is the light blinking while you drive? If that's the case, an engine misfire condition has been detected and you should have your vehicle looked at immediately.

Temperature Indicator Light

If you see this indicator, it may mean that your Subaru engine is either in the process of warming up (solid blue light), close to overheating (blinking red light) or already in an overheating condition (solid red light). If your Subaru temperature light is red in any way, turn off the engine as soon as you can safely do so. Reach out to our Orlando Subaru service center for assistance.

Vehicle Dynamics Control System

There's a button on the dash near your left knee to turn this system on or off. When turned on, Vehicle Dynamics Control is designed to provide you enhanced traction on the road. Florida Subaru drivers stuck in mud or other tough terrain may turn this system off to use wheel spin at low speeds.
