Time to Take Action: Warning Lights

Some of the lights you may see on the dashboard of your Mercedes-Benz E-Class let you know that you’ll need to take action to resolve a potential issue. The most common warning light with this message is the fuel reserve warning lamp.

This yellow light is shaped like a gas pump and could mean one of two things, depending on its appearance.

If the fuel reservoir light flashes, there’s a loss of pressure in the fuel system. Typically, this means that the fuel filler cap is loose. Stop your car and check the cap if you see this light.

If this light turns on and is solid, it means that the fuel level has dropped the reserve range. This means it’s time to stop and refuel.

Check Engine Dashboard Light

Schedule a Service Appointment: Indicator Lights

While you can resolve some lights yourself, other lights indicate it’s time to see a mechanic. Take the check engine warning lamp, for example. This yellow light is shaped like the profile of an engine. When you see this, don’t wait to schedule an appointment.

When driving, the only time this light would turn on is if a malfunction has occurred somewhere in the engine, exhaust system, or fuel system. Since there are different meanings for this light, the expertise of a mechanic is needed.

Other Types of Mercedes-Benz E-Class Dashboard Lights

Some Mercedes-Benz E-Class dashboard lights let you know when a feature is enabled. You could also see dashboard lights when a potential hazard is detected, as is the case with the distance warning lamp.

This red light, shaped like a car inside a triangle, will appear when you’re traveling too fast for the distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. When you see this light, be prepared to brake so you can create more distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
