Whether you've been driving your Jeep Cherokee around Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton, MA, for years or have just gotten behind the wheel, it is important to keep up with vehicle maintenance. Staying on top of its service helps it run smoothly for years to follow.

Our team at Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 24 (CJDR) has put together this Jeep Cherokee dashboard light guide, so you can remain informed regarding your SUV and any service it may need!


Battery Warning

The battery plays an important role in your vehicle's ability to start and run. After a while, the battery will become old and need to be replaced. When this time comes, the battery warning light will come on. This light looks like a Lego, with a plus (+) symbol in the top right corner and a minus (-) symbol in the top left corner.

This light can also come on if the battery is drained and needs a jump. Usually, this will occur if you leave the car's lights on while the engine is off.

Brake Warning

Your brakes play a critical role in your safety on the roads. As time goes on, they will wear and need service. At this time, your brake light will come on. This warning light appears with the word "BRAKE" in all caps and red color.


Check Engine Light

Your Jeep's engine is a complex piece of machinery and the most important part of your vehicle. If something misfires here, your check engine light will come on, indicating you need to seek out service sooner rather than later. This warning light appears as a yellow-colored engine block.


Electric Power Steering Warning

Your Cherokee's power steering is partly responsible for a smooth driving experience, where you can easily control the wheel and direction you're headed. If there is a fault here, you may feel it in the steering wheel, but the power steering light is also a great indicator that this area needs attention.

This light appears as a steering wheel with an exclamation point (!) to its right and will flash in a red hue.

Anti-Lock Braking System Warning

Your Cherokee's ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) also plays an important role in your ability to stop and preventing skidding. If this system malfunctions, a warning light will come on in a yellow hue. The light itself appears as the letters "ABS" inside of a circle, which is then inside of a set of parentheses.

Tire Pressure Warning

Your car's tires and tire pressure weigh heavily in the traction you have on the roadways and the fuel economy you can earn. If your tire pressure falls below optimal levels, this system warns you with a light appearing as an exclamation point inside an unclosed circle that will flash in yellow.
