One way we do this is by providing you with descriptions of certain dashboard lights you’ll find inside your Genesis G80. Keep reading to find out what they look like as well as what to do when you see them.  

Charging System Warning Light

Charging System Warning Light

When you see a symbol that resembles a typical car battery, you’re being alerted that there’s a malfunction with either the alternator or the electrical charging system.

As soon as you notice it, pull over safely and shut off your vehicle. Take a look at the alternator drive belt to check if it’s too loose or if it’s broken. In either instance, have it repaired by an automotive technician. If the belt looks fine, have the technician check the electrical charging system to find out if that’s the cause.  

Air Bag Warning Light

The Air Bag Warning Light uses the illustration of a seated passenger juxtaposed with a fully inflated air bag. It’s normal for this light to come on for six seconds or so when you activate the Engine Start/Stop function. If it remains on longer, you’ll want to have it checked out right away to see if there’s a malfunction with the Safety Restraint System.

Oil Pressure Warning Light

Oil Pressure Warning Light

When the engine is running low on motor oil, the Oil Pressure Warning Light will appear. Pull over as soon as possible, turn off the engine, and check the oil level. If it’s low, go ahead and fill it. If the light remains on after you’ve pulled back onto the road, have it checked by a mechanic as soon as you can. You’ll be able to recognize this light since it looks like an oil can with a drop spilling from the spout.

Malfunction Indicator Lamp

Malfunction Indicator Lamp

The Malfunction Indicator Lamp looks like an engine. Aside from the three seconds it will illuminate after activating the Engine Start/Stop function, it will turn on if there’s a problem either with the engine, the vehicle powertrain, or the emission control system. No matter what the cause, you’ll want to have your vehicle checked by a service center mechanic immediately.
