BYD Warning Lights

We are all quite familiar with the common car warning lights that illuminate on our dashboard however with the increase of people switching to electric and hybrid vehicles, it will be more often that you will now come across a symbol you may not recognise from a standard diesel/petrol vehicle.

Here you will find all the information about what each warning light means and whether action is required if they illuminate. Our helpful guide will show you all the common car warning light symbols and indicators you will need to know about.These icons may look slightly different in your vehicle, so make sure to check you owners manual.

It’s super important to know what your car dashboard warning lights actually mean, this will not only help you potentially predict the possibility of your car breaking down but may also end up saving you money in the long run and keeping you safe on the road.

EV & hybrid car dashboard warning lights and what they mean:

There are 3 different categories of warning lights; red, amber and green:

  • Red warning lights can signify a serious problem and mean you should stop the car as soon as it's safe.
  • Amber warning lights mean that action is required as soon as possible but you don't need to stop driving immediately.
  • Green/Blue/Black warning lights are for information only and usually don't require action
