When driving through the roads around Macon, Warner Robins, or Milledgeville, GA, in your Toyota Tacoma, a light may appear on the dashboard. You'll want to know if it means your vehicle needs immediate attention or is just a reminder.

Our team at Butler Toyota of Macon has put together this dashboard warning light guide for your convenience. Those little symbols can sometimes be tricky to decipher, which is why we've explained them for you right here in one place.

Toyota Tacoma Dashboard Lights

To give you a better idea of what your dashboard light symbols mean, we've broken it down into two categories: warning lights and indicator lights. Let's get started!

Toyota Tacoma Warning Lights

When these lights appear, they indicate that there's a malfunction with a system in the vehicle, and it needs attention as soon as possible. Some warning lights include:

  • Brake System Warning Light. This light appears as the word BRAKE and lets you know there's a malfunction with the brake system.
  • Check Engine. This light appears as a miniature engine, and indicates a general engine malfunction in your Tacoma.
  • Low Engine Oil Level Warning Light. This appears as an oil can with a wavy line underneath it, and indicates that your engine oil needs to be filled or replaced.
  • Low Fuel Level Warning Light. This illuminates as a fuel pump, and lets you know that your fuel is low.
  • Tire Pressure Warning Light. Appearing as an exclamation point inside a tire with treads, this lets you know that one or more of your tires is low on pressure.
  • ABS Warning Light. Appearing as ABS, this light lets you know that there may be a malfunction with the anti-lock braking system.

Toyota Tacoma Indicator Lights

These lights are here to let you know that one or more of your Tacoma model's systems have been activated, and can include:

  • Headlight indicator. This appears as an upside-down light bulb with beaming light rays.
  • Multi-terrain Select indicator. When this system is activated, you'll see a miniature pickup truck on top of what looks like tough terrain.
  • Low outside temperature indicator. This light appears as a snowflake on a road, and indicates that the outside temperature is below freezing.
  • Parking Brake Indicator. This light appears as the word PARK and informs you that your emergency brake is still on.
  • Cruise Control SET indicator. This light appears as the word SET and lets you know that your cruise control speed has been set.
  • Automatic high beam indicator. This light appears as a high beam with the word AUTO in front of it, letting you know that this system has been activated.
