Warning lights and what they mean 

Warning lights and what they mean 

When a warning suddenly flashes up on your dashboard it can be concerning. To help you identify any problems quickly we’ve created a complete guide to all of our warning lights. Scroll down to find the warning you’re seeing and click for more information.

Warning lights come in three varieties – red, amber and green. Red means you need to pull over as soon as it’s safe to do so. Amber is less severe, but still indicates a problem that needs attention by a professional. Green warnings are for information only and don’t require action.

In emergencies, you can call Volkswagen Breakdown Assistance on 1800 202 104. Or to get your Volkswagen checked, it’s always best to find a retailerOpens an external link
