The Nissan Rogue is incredibly intuitive to use, including its straightforward system of dashboard symbols and indicators. Even still, Cherry Hill, Philadelphia, and Mount Laurel drivers may be curious about what a particular light on their dash means. You can read this quick reference Nissan Rogue Dashboard light guide to learn more about your Nissan dashboard symbols and meanings.
The Nissan Rogue generally has two types of lights: warning lights and indicators.
Warning lights are supposed to activate and remain on when there is an issue with one or more of your vehicle’s systems. Most will also briefly light up for a few seconds during your vehicle’s startup and then turn off soon after. If these lights remain on, or they do not activate when you first turn on your Rogue, then you should consult your owner’s manual, as well as your driver information display, and consider bringing in your Rogue for service.
The second type of dashboard lights you will see are indicator lights, and these are often white or blue in hue, as opposed to the yellow, orange, or red warning lights. These indicator lights let you know that a system or feature is active, such as your high beams, or is currently switched off, such as your vehicle’s dynamic control (VDC) system.
When left on, this warning light can indicate an issue with your anti-lock braking system or possible low brake fluid. This light will either look like “ABS” spelled out, or a circle with “ABS” inside and two outer lines on each side.
This warning light can indicate problems with your vehicle’s electric charging system or your battery. It may also mean that your alternator belt is loose, broken, or missing. It illuminates to look like a battery, with + and – symbols inside.
This light activates when your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) detects low tire pressure or an issue with the TPMS itself. Check your driver information display for more specific details. It resembles a horseshoe with an exclamation point inside.
This looks like a triangle with an exclamation point inside. It can indicate problems that are easy to fix, such as a loose fuel cap, but it can also indicate larger problems, such as overheating within your AWD system.
If this light activates during driving, reduce your speed, prepare to pull over, and check your information display for more details. You may need to schedule service immediately.
This warning light can indicate malfunctions in your power steering system or low power steering fluid.
The light looks like a steering wheel with an exclamation point to its right.
This light will activate as a reminder for front occupants to buckle their seatbelts. If ignored, a chime may sound.
This light can indicate issues with your airbags, seatbelt pretensioners, impact sensors, or other airbag problems when it remains on, flashes, or does not come on at all.
The supplemental air bag warning light looks like a passenger buckled into their seat, with a small circle in their lap, meant to resemble the airbags.
This yellow, engine-shaped light will activate and remain on if an issue with the Rogue’s emissions control system is detected, the fuel cap is not completely secured, or there is a malfunction with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It may also blink to indicate engine misfires, which can require immediate inspection and service.
This light indicates that your fog lights are currently turned on.
This light can indicate that your front passenger airbag system is currently inactive based on the weight sensed in the seat. It looks like the supplemental airbag warning light; however, the circle in the lap of the passenger is crossed out.
In equipped vehicles, this light indicates that the automatic high beam system is operational. The light itself has a series of horizontal lines stacked on top of one another, with a small, curved shape with an “A” in it on the right.
This light will activate when your high beams are being used. It’ll go out when the low beam is selected.
This light activates and blinks when your Rogue’s Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system is operating, notifying the driver that the vehicle is close to its traction limitations.
It may also illuminate while the VDC system is on, which means that the system’s fail-safe mode is operating and that the system itself may not be functioning properly.
The symbol of this light is one you’re likely familiar with. It resembles a vehicle with two swaying lines below.
This light indicates that your VDC system is currently switched off. It looks exactly like the Slip Indicator Light, except with the word “OFF” below it.
This light indicates that you have a left or right turn signal active. Both may be active when your hazard lights are switched on. It looks like two arrows facing opposite directions.
