Is this usually associated with serious problems or minor ones? And in that image is that the only place that triangle would show up?

Hi again,

 

Please do not forget to press ACCEPT so that I get credit for my answer - thanks!

 

Usually minor ones like low washer fluid, etc.

 

You can get a larger triangle higher up in the panel which indicates that service is due.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.


If I have answered your question, I would kindly ask that you please press the green "ACCEPT" button so that I receive credit for doing so.
