Dashboard lights are displayed in a variety of different colors, depending on the system, severity, and status in a specific Toyota vehicle.

Yellow icons aren’t necessarily of immediate importance but indicate an area that needs to be addressed (low fuel).

Red icons indicate an issue that needs to be addressed immediately (open door or low engine oil pressure).
