Hyundai Tucson Warning Lights


Airbag Warning Light: If you see a symbol that depicts a seated passenger and a solid circle, it could mean that there's a malfunction with your Tucson's airbags. If this occurs, your airbags may not deploy properly during a collision, so this requires the attention of a certified Hyundai technician.


ABS Warning Light: If the letters ABS inside a circle light up, it could indicate a problem with your vehicle's anti-lock braking system, a safety mechanism that allows you to maintain steering control under heavy braking. 


All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Warning Light: This light looks like the axle of a vehicle with four tires and corresponding connection points. If you see it light up, there may be a problem with your Tucson's AWD system.


Brake Warning Lights: If you see an exclamation point inside a circle (!), P inside a circle (P), or the word BRAKE in all capital letters, first check whether your parking brake is disengaged before driving. If it is, your crossover could be low on brake fluid, so check for leaks and take it to an authorized Hyundai dealer for an inspection and diagnosis.


Charging System Warning Light: If you see a symbol in the shape of a rectangular car battery on your Tucson's dashboard, there's an issue with the electrical charging system (i.e., the alternator or the battery). Begin troubleshooting by unplugging any auxiliary electronics that could be drawing excess power, and be sure to visit a service center to be sure that the problem is corrected.


Engine Oil Pressure Warning Light: An oil can symbol indicates inadequate oil pressure in the engine or a number of other issues with your oil. Pull over and check the oil, replacing lost oil if necessary. If this doesn't correct the problem, visit a service center to be sure that your engine's oil functions as it should.


Low Tire Pressure Warning Light: Your Tucson's tire pressure monitoring system keeps an eye on the air pressure in all four tires. If the pressure drops down below the recommended levels, you may see an exclamation point inside a tire shape (_!_). Always verify the pressure in each tire with a manual gauge prior to refilling.


Malfunction Indicator: The malfunction indicator looks like the rough outline of an engine. When this light comes on, it could indicate anything from a loose fuel cap to a problem with the emissions system, so be sure to have your vehicle inspected by a Hyundai technician.

Special System Dashboard Lights in the Tucson

Downhill Brake Control Indicator: If you see a symbol that depicts a car on a downward slope, it means the downhill brake controller indicator is active.

Electronic Stability Control Indicator: The rear end of a car driving off with wavy tread lines indicates that the Electronic Stability Control system is engaged. When you see the same symbol with the word OFF beneath it, the system has been turned off.

Lane Departure Warning System Indicator: A car positioned at the center of two dotted lines means your Lane Departure Warning system is currently active.
