What Service Lights Can Pop Up on Your Subaru's Dashboard?

Your Orange County drive can be a bit more stressful when dealing with issues both on the road and on your dashboard. From the easily detected to the difficult to figure out, numerous signs can pop up with varying meanings as to how they will affect your morning commute.

Check Engine Light

One of the most common to deal with is the Check Engine light. Appearing as the words "check engine" highlighted in orange, it can lead to numerous issues that Subaru-certified experts will often need to check to confirm. While simple solutions like closing your gas cap or putting in engine oil can remove the Check Engine Light, the issue can often extend past easy-to-fix problems to more complex ones. Our Subaru service team is happy to determine the cause of your Check Engine light and get you back on the road home to Laguna Niguel in no time!

Low Fuel Light? AT Oil Temp Light? Reference Your Owner's Manual

From Low Fuel Warning Light to Engine Hood Open Warning Light, there are so many lights to know that it's impossible to keep them all in your head. Luckily, you have a handy reference guide in your Subaru known as the Owner's Manual - a book that details all of your Subaru's needs and what they mean. To inspire confidence on your Anaheim drive, we encourage you to refer to the Owner's Manual if you aren't sure what each light means.
