How to Diagnose the Issue When a Warning Light Comes On

For the most part, there is just a single color for the dashboard warning lights, but there are a few that do have multiple colors to symbolize the severity of the issue. If the light is orange, it is suggested that you have it looked at. The light lets you know that you should watch out for a potential issue. If the light is red, it means that you should attend to the issue immediately. Depending on the system that gets the light, you should pull over as soon as it is safe, or head straight to the nearest certified Kia service provider.
