About the Prado
The Toyota Prado is a popular SUV in Australia as well as other territories around the world.
There are many features that make it desirable, but one of the most important ones is the warning lights system.
These will tell you when your engine needs attention before serious damage occurs.
Toyota first unveiled the Prado in 1988 and was eventually released in 1990, built upon a shortened version of the Land Cruiser chassis.
It is a mid-sized SUV that has been available since then with minor updates and changes throughout the years.
The list of primary features includes all-wheel-drive, raised ground clearance, locking rear differential, and high clearance.
Common Warning Lights
There are a variety of warning lights that could come on in a Prado. It is important that you familiarize yourself with what they mean so you don’t get stranded when it’s dark outside.
Below is a list of the most common warning lights you’ll see.
Check Engine Light
When illuminated this means that your car’s computer has detected an issue with one of its systems and it’s not safe to drive until the problem is resolved.
It could be something as simple as needing new spark plugs or as complicated as a serious engine fault.
This will come on in your Prado if your oil pressure is low or there’s an issue with the oil circulation system in your car.
Although if it does happen to be something simple, you can usually correct it by topping up your oil manually and restarting the engine so that the level resets.
If it’s more serious, however, you’ll need to take your car to a mechanic or Toyota dealer as soon as possible so that they can diagnose and fix the problem accordingly.
