Dashboard (console) - the name of a group of devices combined in one design. The instrument panel, as a means of displaying information, to the greatest extent determines the internal visual information content of the car. There are arrow and LED dashboards. Any auto panel devices should provide good visibility of all scales and sensors installed on it, while remaining fairly simple to use, to give all the necessary information to the driver.

Modern cars have many sensors and sensors, and also have electronic engine control. All information from the sensors flows into the on-board computer of the machine. In the event of any error, breakdown, or the need to inform the driver of important information, automakers have provided a large number of symbols and inscriptions on the dashboard that light up under certain conditions.

Why are the icons on the dashboard a different color?

Car manufacturers have provided several types of inscriptions and symbols on the dashboard, dividing them into different colors. For example, if you see a not red icon on a tidy (for example, green or blue), then your car most likely still works fine and you can continue driving. But, nevertheless, you should not ignore the appearance of any warning on the panel.

If a red symbol appears on the dashboard, the car's electronic system alerts you to a potentially serious problem. If a yellow or orange icon appears on the dashboard, the car warns you that the car may need maintenance, diagnostics or repair.

Please note that if the symbol is flashing, then you should not delay with a trip to the technical center.
