JAGUAR F-PACE DASHBOARD LIGHTS
Imagine you’re making your way through Cleveland in your Jaguar F-PACE, cruising down I-90, when you see a dashboard light turn on. If you’re like many other drivers in the Parma and Garfield Heights areas, you might not know exactly how to respond.

Warning Lamps and Indicators
With Jaguar cars, warning lamps and indicators come in three colors: Red, Amber/Yellow, and Green/Blue.
The red warning lamps are called primary warnings and indicate a malfunction with a vital system. These dashboard lights require prompt and immediate attention.
The amber and yellow lights are secondary warnings. Some signal a system malfunction, while others are indicators that a system is working properly. Green and blue lamps are also indicators and don’t require immediate attention.
We’ll be covering the most common red and amber/yellow lights in this guide.
Red Jaguar F-PACE Dashboard Lights
Critical Warning Message: If you see a dashboard light that looks like an exclamation point in a triangle, check your instrument panel for relevant message displays and take appropriate action.
Battery Charge: The battery charge dashboard light looks like the image of a battery and indicates that there is a detected fault with the battery charging system. Pull over as soon as it’s safe and seek assistance from your local Jaguar technician.
Brake: The Brake light is a red light with the word “BRAKE”. This dashboard light indicates that there’s a potential fault with the braking system. Do not continue driving as your brake fluid level may be low. Driving with low brake fluid can lead to brake failure. Stop the car as soon as it’s safe and contact your Jaguar dealership.
Engine Temperature: If you see a light that looks like a thermometer being dipped in liquid, your engine’s temperature is too high. This will also be accompanied by a message in the instrument panel that reads “ENGINE OVERHEATING”. Pull over when it’s safe and turn off the engine to allow it to cool.
Low Oil Pressure: A red light that looks like an oil can indicates that your oil pressure is low. Stop the vehicle as soon as it’s safe to do so and turn off the engine. Contact a certified Jaguar service center for assistance as you may need an oil change. Do not continue driving as doing so could lead to overheating or irreparable seal and gasket damage.
Amber/Yellow Dashboard Light
Check Engine: The Check Engine light is amber and looks like a picture of an engine. If this turns on while driving, there may be a fault with the emissions system. Your car may enter “limp-home mode,” which reduces vehicle performance to prevent potential damage. If the light is flashing, reduce your speed and pull over as soon as it’s safe. Contact a Jaguar technician.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): The TPMS light is yellow and looks like an exclamation mark in parentheses. This light indicates that one or more tires is significantly under-inflated. Fill your tires to the recommended PSI as soon as possible and avoid any difficult driving maneuvers while this light is lit.
If you properly inflate the tires and the light doesn’t go out after a few regular driving cycles or it’s flashing, head to your nearest Jaguar service center as soon as possible for maintenance.
