One of the most bewildering experiences in modern life is trying to decode the warning symbols on your car’s instrument panel. What do they mean? Who made these? What are we supposed to get out of “squiggle, squiggle, oil can, exclamation point”?
Thankfully, Leith Volkswagen of Raleigh’s service department has made an easy-to-read, colorful guide to decoding your dashboard with all the symbols and what they mean. This way, you can look it up on your phone and know whether you have bees in your trunk or just need to tighten the fuel cap.
Knowing that the service department already figured this out made us wonder what people think when they see these without said knowledge, so we took a stab at our best guesses. But seriously, check the guide above if you see one of these lights and feel free to stop by Leith VW of Raleigh for a quick consult. The text is kind of tiny, so if you click on it you can get a larger view. Enjoy!
