Warning lights

Warning lights and what they mean.

When a warning light appears on your dashboard it can be concerning. To help you quickly identify problems we’ve created a comprehensive guide for them. Scroll down to find the warning light you’re seeing and click for more information.

Warning lights come in four varieties - red, amber, green, and white. Red means you must pull over as soon as it’s safe to and call Roadside Assistance on 0800 777 192. Amber means your car needs to be seen by a professional as quickly as possible. We always recommend getting your Volkswagen checked at an authorised retailer. Find your nearest retailer here. Green lights are information only and don’t require action. Finally, white lights display functions and information only and don’t need any action from you.
