How to Use Kia Dashboard Symbols Guides

Kia vehicles come with many safety features, but one of the most important features is the variety of dashboard symbols. Many of these lights and symbols are there to let you know that a specific system or feature is active or inactive, such as your high-beam indicator or traction control system, but there are also several lights that are designed to warn you of a potential malfunction in a vital system, like your oil pressure warning light or ABS light.

By using our Kia dashboard symbols guides, you can learn the most important and most common symbols and lights you'll find on your Kia vehicle's dashboard, so you can determine the appropriate action to take when one comes on.

Schedule Your Repair or Service

If you notice a dashboard light or symbol that indicates a malfunction in a system or component, it's important to get to a service center as soon as possible. Ignoring this warning can result in costly repairs and severe damage to your vehicle. For example, if you see the check engine light come on, it could mean there's a misfire or your catalytic converter is faulty, which can affect your vehicle's ability to function properly.
