Indicator and warning lamps

Visual indicators informing the driver that a system is in operation, switched off or has a fault.

When the ignition is switched on

When the ignition is switched on

Certain warning lamps come on for a few seconds in the instrument panel and/or instrument panel screen when the vehicle's ignition is switched on. When the engine is started, these same warning lamps should go off. If they remain on, before moving off, refer to the information on the warning lamp concerned.

Associated warnings

The switching on of certain warning lamps may be accompanied by an audible signal and a message in the instrument panel or multifunction screen. The warning lamps may come on continuously (fixed) or flash.

Certain warning lamps may come on in one of two modes. Only by relating the type of lighting to the operating status of the vehicle can it be ascertained whether the situation is normal or whether a fault has occurred.
