SEAT warning lights can be split into three main categories - Red warning lights, which require urgent attention, orange warning lights that require action, and green warning lights that indicate when a system is active.
If you see a red or orange car warning light symbol, you must bring your car in for a service as soon as possible.
You can get in touch by calling on 01270 864425 or enquiring with the form below.
The red warning light triangle will illuminate if there is an information message on your SEAT console that needs to be read urgently. Read the message and then take the appropriate action.
The parking brake warning light will come on to indicate that your handbrake is on. If the light remains on when your handbrake is released, then this could mean a fault within your handbrake system, and you should have your vehicle serviced, immediately, in case it fails.
The brake system warning light will illuminate if your brake fluid level is low or there is a fault in your braking system. Stop your vehicle immediately to check your brake fluid levels. If your levels are low, then they will need to be topped up before continuing your journey. If your levels are normal, but the light is illuminated, then you need to book your car in for a service as there could be a fault in your braking system.
A red steering fault light indicates that there is a severe fault with your steering. If you see this light appear while you are driving, then you should pull over immediately and seek assistance.
A red foot brake warning light will illuminate on your SEAT dashboard if your Adaptive Cruise Control has detected that there is an insufficient braking distance between you and the vehicle in front. You should apply your footbrake to increase your braking distance.
A red AdBlue warning light will appear if your AdBlue level is too low for your engine to restart. If this light appears while you are driving, then you may be unable to re-start your car, so drive yourself to full the AdBlue tank immediately. If the red AdBlue light also appears with a spanner, then this indicates that there is a fault in your AdBlue system and you should take your vehicle in for a service as you may not be able to restart it.
If a red gearbox warning light appears on your SEAT dashboard, then this is an indication that there is a severe fault with your clutch or gearbox. This warning light is usually accompanied by a message which will provide you with more information about the error.
A red engine cooling light signifies that the engine of your car is overheating. If the light remains on steadily, then this usually means that your engine coolant levels are low. If the light is flashing, then this means that there is a fault in the engine cooling system. Do not drive your vehicle if this light is on as it can permanently damage your engine.
The oil pressure warning light will illuminate if our engine oil levels are low or there is a fault with your engine oil system. Pullover, as soon as it is safe to do so and check your engine oil levels. If they are reasonable, then it is likely that there is a fault with your system and so you will need to call for roadside assistance.
The red battery warning light will flash up momentarily when you first start your engine, but should then go off. If this red warning light remains on when you are driving, then it indicates that your alternator is not charging your battery. Without charge, you may be unable to restart your car, so you must drive to a garage immediately and have your battery serviced.
