Guide to Mercedes-BenzDashboard Symbols and Meanings

When your Mercedes-Benz dashboard warning lights go on, it means that your vehicle is trying to tell you something. Although the lights on your new vehicle‘s dashboard can be confusing, they’re important to understand. Read Fletcher Jones Imports’ quick and easy guide to the Mercedes-Benz dashboard symbols and meanings below!

ABS Light

Icon: Circle with “ABS” in the center and one curved line on either side

Meaning: This means that the Anti-Lock Brake System is deactivated, including the ESP®, BAS®, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Hill-Start Assist. The system won’t respond to emergency braking, but you can still slow down and stop your vehicle.

Steering Wheel Light

Icon: Steering wheel with an exclamation point next to it

Meaning: When this light is on, it means the electric power steering is not working.  

Battery Light

Icon: Battery with a plus and minus sign

Meaning: The battery isn’t charging correctly. This problem could be the result of a malfunctioning alternator, poly-v belt, or a problem with the electrical system.

Brake Wear Light

Icon: Circle with a dotted line on either side

Meaning: It’s time to replace the brake pads and/or brake rotors. To avoid vehicle damage and safety hazards, schedule a brake replacement ASAP.


Icon: Steaming cup on a saucer

Meaning: ATTENTION ASSIST® looks for signs of sleepiness by monitoring your driving. When this light comes on, the driver should take a break from driving and wait to resume until they’re feeling more alert.

Check Engine Light

Icon: Engine

Meaning: This light can mean a few things. First, it can mean there’s a problem with the engine. It can also indicate an issue with fuel or the fuel injection systems, exhaust, ignition, or high emissions.

Glow Plug Light

Icon: Yellow coil

Meaning: When this light is on, it means the glow plugs are in the process of heating the vehicle’s cylinders.
