Hyundai Santa Fe Dashboard Symbols


The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe may be equipped with an array of safety features, but its dashboard lights are still its most helpful amenities. The dashboard lights in the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe are specially designed to help you understand how your vehicle is performing and if it needs professional maintenance and repairs.

These lights can activate any time you're driving throughout Odessa, Middletown, and Dover. Check out this 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe dashboard symbols guide provided by Winner Hyundai to help you understand what each symbol indicates so you can provide the professional care your vehicle needs.

Hyundai Santa Fe Warning Lights

  • Malfunction Indicator Lamp: This dashboard light looks like an engine block. When it's illuminated, it means there's a problem with the engine's emissions system.
  • Charging System Warning Light: If you see a symbol that looks like a car battery in your Santa Fe, there's something wrong with your charging system, battery, or alternator.
  • Engine Oil Pressure Warning Light: The engine oil pressure warning light is shaped like an oil can. When it's on, it means there's not enough motor oil in the engine.
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Warning Light: A symbol that looks like a thermometer bobbing in the water is the engine coolant temperature warning light. It indicates that the coolant in your vehicle is dangerously overheating.
  • Low Tire Pressure Warning Light: When one of your tires is underinflated, a symbol that looks like the side of a tire with an exclamation point will appear on your dashboard.
  • AWD Warning Light: If you see a symbol shaped like your vehicle's drivetrain system on your dashboard, there could be an issue with the all-wheel drive system.
  • Low Fuel Level Warning: When your Santa Fe is running low on gas, you'll see something that looks like a fuel pump on your dashboard.

These symbols are some of the most common dashboard warning lights you'll see when you're behind the wheel of your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. The second you notice any of these lights, you'll want to schedule a service appointment at a certified Hyundai service center. Failure to do so could lead to performance problems, automotive breakdowns, and expensive repairs.
