Red Jaguar F-TYPE Dashboard Lights
The red Jaguar F-TYPE dashboard lights are primary warnings. They indicate that a vital system may have malfunctioned and requires immediate attention.
Critical Warning Message: This looks like an exclamation point inside a triangle. If you see this light, check your instrument panel for relevant messages and take the appropriate action.
Brake: If you see a red light that spells the word “BRAKE,” there may be a braking system fault. Pull over as soon as it’s safe and contact your nearest Jaguar service center. Continuing to drive with this light lit could lead to brake failure.
Low Oil Pressure: The Low Oil Pressure Light looks like the image of an oil can and indicates that your oil pressure is low. Pull over as soon as it’s safe and contact your Jaguar dealership to check your oil. Do not continue driving or you might experience engine overheating or irreparable seal and gasket damage.
Battery Charge: This light looks like a battery and indicates a potential battery charging system fault. Park the car as soon as it’s safe and contact a certified Jaguar technician.
Engine Temperature: The Engine Temperature Light indicates that your engine’s temperature is too high. This light looks like a thermometer or dipstick being dipped in liquid and may be accompanied by a message in the instrument panel that reads “ENGINE OVERHEATING.” Pull over when safe, turn off the engine, and allow it to cool.
Amber and Yellow Jaguar F-TYPE Dashboard Lights
Amber and yellow dashboard lights are secondary warnings. They may signal a system malfunction or may simply inform the driver that a system is working properly. We’ll focus on two of the most urgent amber and yellow lights here.
Check Engine: The Check Engine Light is amber in color and looks like an engine. If you see this light, there may be an emissions system fault. If this light is solid, your car may enter “limp-home mode” and reduce vehicle performance to prevent potential damage. If the light is flashing, reduce your speed and pull over as soon as it’s safe to do so. Contact your Jaguar dealership for assistance.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): This dashboard light is yellow and looks like an exclamation mark inside a tire. If it’s solid, one or more of your tires may be significantly under-inflated. Fill your tires to the recommended PSI as soon as possible and avoid any difficult driving maneuvers.
If the light is flashing, there may be a fault with your TPMS. Take your car to the nearest Jaguar service center as soon as possible.
