There’s nothing more unnerving than having a dashboard light appear in your 2017 Dodge Charger’s instrument cluster while driving through Ontario, Sodus, or Wayne County.

The next time you have a question about one of the 2017 Dodge Charger’s dashboard lights, check out our dashboard light guide from Peake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat below.
Brake Warning Light
The 2017 Dodge Charger’s brake warning light monitors several functions, including brake fluid levels and parking brake engagement. If it’s on while driving, check to ensure the 2017 Dodge Charger’s parking brake is disengaged. If the parking brake is off, the brake fluid level is low, or there’s a problem with the anti-lock brake system reservoir, have the 2017 Dodge Charger’s braking system inspected at a certified Dodge dealership immediately.
Battery Charge Warning Light
The 2017 Dodge Charger’s battery charge warning light will appear on its dashboard if there’s an issue with its battery, charging system, or electrical system. If it appears while driving, turn off all nonessential electrical components and take the 2017 Dodge Charger to an authorized Dodge dealership to have its electrical system inspected or replaced as needed.
Transmission Temperature Warning Light
The transmission temperature warning light on the 2017 Dodge Charger indicates that the transmission fluid is getting hot. This can occur when driving under extreme conditions. When it appears, pull over to a safe location and stop the vehicle. Place the transmission in neutral. Run the engine at idle speed until the transmission temperature light turns off.
Engine Check/Malfunction Indicator Light
The 2017 Dodge Charger’s engine check/malfunction indicator light could appear on its dashboard for a variety of reasons, including a loose or missing gas cap, poor gasoline quality, or catalytic converter damage. Have a certified Dodge technician inspect your 2017 Dodge Charger’s engine to prevent any serious damage from occurring.
Anti-Lock Brake Indicator Light
The 2017 Dodge Charger’s anti-lock brake indicator light turns on when you first start the ignition. If it remains on while driving, the Charger’s anti-lock braking system isn’t working properly and requires maintenance. The conventional brakes will continue operating in the meantime, but you should still get the Charger’s anti-lock brakes looked at sooner rather than later.
Speed Limit Warning Light
Whenever the 2017 Dodge Charger’s speed reaches 120 km/hour, a speed warning light will appear in its instrument cluster display to alert you to slow down. A warning message will pop up and a chime will sound along with it.
