Your Mercedes-Benz is a fine-tuned machine from one of the best auto manufacturers in the world. As such, it takes maintenance and TLC to keep it running smooth and at its optimal performance. So when a dashboard light on your Mercedes vehicles lights up, you want to get the problem taken care of right away. Here are some common dashboard warnings and what they are trying to tell you.
Some MB models have a dashboard light that alerts the driver when something is wrong with the brakes. If your parking brake is not on but the warning light is, the most common problem is low brake fluid.
If you see your oil light come on, it probably means you need to add oil to your Mercedes. Do this as soon as possible or you risk damaging the engine. If the light stays on after you add oil, there could be a leak in the oil pressure. Take it to a mechanic right away if this is the case.
Check Engine Light
The “check engine” light could refer to a number of problems with either your engine or the transmission. Sometimes it is as simple as a loose gas cap, but it’s best to get your Mercedes to a mechanic as soon as possible when this light comes to avoid further possible damage.
