Understanding 2016 Kia Optima Warning Lights

Part of proper vehicle maintenance and care is knowing what each of the warning lights means for your particular vehicle.

In most cars, all warning lights will come on when the vehicle is first started. This is part of the built-in self-check program. They light up and then will automatically shut off within a few seconds. If they don’t shut off or if they light up while driving, this could be indicating a problem. Let’s take a minute or two and get a better understanding of what 2016 Kia Optima Warning Lights mean.

Warning lights are a very good thing that we all have in our cars, or at least they should be thought of that way. But, if you don’t know what they mean, they can also be kind of confusing at best and annoying at worst. This is especially true when you have no idea what the indicators stand for or how you should proceed when one of them does come on. 

Below we have created a chart of some of the common dash lights you’ll find in your 2016 Kia Optima. Here’s a quick description of the warning lights in your vehicle, we also recommend that you check the owners manual or feel free to give our service desk a call.

One thing to keep in mind is the color of the indicator lights. An orange light means warning – please look into this. A red indicator light means – this is pretty serious, stop your car now and call for service. It may help to check our maintenance menu. Just type in the model and make to get information to get a better understanding of what your car may need.
