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.
Nissan Rogue Dashboard Light Types: Warning Lights vs Indicators
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 more alarming 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.
