Below are some of the dashboard indicator lights with descriptions you might see over the course of ownership of your Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The details below are informational and applicable to U.S. Mercedes-Benz models. Please contact our Service Department for questions or assistance at 205-848-7000.
There is a malfunction in the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System). This may cause an airbag not to deploy in the event of an accident and is recommended you bring the vehicle to a Mercedes-Benz repair facility as soon as possible.
If the red coolant light is on you may have a faulty temperature gauge or the coolant level is too low. If the coolant temperature exceeds 248 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees Celsius), DO NOT DRIVE the vehicle. The engine could otherwise be damaged.
A light bulb has failed. This light may be accompanied with a message on the dashboard stating which specific light is out.
The seat belt warning lamp reminds the driver and front passenger to fasten their seat belts. In addition, if you are driving faster than 15 mph, an audible warning alert will sound.
The oil level is low. DO NOT DRIVE the vehicle. The engine could otherwise be damaged.
You are driving with the Parking Brake engaged.
The battery is not being charged. Possible causes are a faulty alternator, a torn poly-V-belt, or a malfunction in the vehicle electronics.
ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System) is deactivated due to a malfunction. ESP (Electronic Stability Program), BAS (Brake Assist), EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution) and hill start are also deactivated. The brake system continues to function normally, but without the functions listed above.
The brake pads and/or rotors have reached their wear limit and need to be replaced.
The pressure in one or more of your tires is insufficient or has dropped significantly. Pull over to a safe spot and check all tires.
The ESC (or ESP) system has been deactivated. Esc will not stabilize the vehicle if it starts to skid or if a wheel starts to spin. Some vehicles are equipped with an ESP on/off button. Try to reactivate the system or bring to a dealership.
Electronic Stability Control (previously known as ESP, Electronic Stability Program) is deactivated. ESC will not stabilize the vehicle if it starts to skid or if a wheel starts to spin. Most vehicles have an ESC on/off button. If this icon should appear inside a yellow triangle, then ESC or traction control has intervened because there is a risk of skidding or at least one wheel has started to spin. Cruise control, if engaged, will be deactivated.
There may be a malfunction in the engine management system, the fuel injection system, the exhaust system, the ignition system, or the fuel system. The emission values may have been exceeded and the engine may be breaking into emergency mode.
The power steering assistance is faulty. You will need to use more force to steer the vehicle. A warning tone will also sound.
Your fuel level could be low or the fuel system pressure is too low. The fuel filler cap is not closed correctly or the fuel system is leaking.
The Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is low. The fluid creates a catalytic reaction that removes particles from the exhaust.
Diesel engines require heat in the cylinders to operate, which is supplied by glow plugs when the engine is cold. This light will be illuminated when the ignition is turned on until the plugs are heated sufficiently to start the engine. The image will look like a coil or loops in amber or yellow.
