Your Guide to the Volkswagen Jetta Warning Lights

Dashboard Warning Lights

Almost all modern vehicles use a series of dashboard lights in order to clearly indicate problems to the driver. However, these aren’t going to be of very much use if you’re unfamiliar with the Volkswagen dash light meanings. Thankfully, anyone can learn how to interpret the Volkswagen Jetta warning lights and get the VW service they need with us!

VW Jetta Warning Lights and Their Meanings

Your Volkswagen Jetta possesses a number of lights which you should already be familiar with, including the Fuel Cap Off, Hood Open, Low Fuel Level, and Check Engine lights. There are also numerous additional lights, and since some are unique to the VW Jetta, we’ve detailed each of them right here:

  • Brake Problems
    • Antilock Braking System Malfunction – Appears as the letters “ABS”
    • Brake Light Bulb Failure – Appears as a circle with a small light inside, ringed by parentheses
    • Brake Pad Wear – Appears as a circle, ringed by two sets of dashes which resemble parentheses
  • Engine and Powertrain Problems
    • Automatic Transmission Malfunction – Appears as a gear with an exclamation mark
    • Coolant Level / Temperature IssuesAppears as a thermometer over a small wave, in red.
    • Diesel Engine Pre-Glow – If there’s a problem, this light will BLINK in yellow. A solid light means that the diesel pre-glow system is working fine.
  • AdBlue® System Issues
    • AdBlue® Level Low – Appears as a half-empty canister pouring fluid.
    • AdBlue® System Malfunction – If the half-empty canister appears alongside the Wrench light, the system is malfunctioning
    • AdBlue® No Restart – If the canister appears in red, the AdBlue® system is not working at all, the engine will not restart
  • Issues with Other Components
    • Battery/Alternator Error – A battery light in red will indicate a problem with your electrical or charging systems
    • Airbag Problem – Appears as a small circle in front of a seated, seat-belted passenger.
