Interior Controls-Instrument Panel

You should be familiar with all controls and safety devices within the interior of the vehicle, and able to explain the function of each component.

Alert Lights and Warning Symbols 

Temperature light or gauge- This light/gauge warns you when the coolant in the engine is too hot or too low. If it comes on, pull off the road when safe and get professional help. Caution: never attempt to remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. The pressure and hot steam may cause severe upper torso and facial burns. 

Oil pressure warning light or gauge- This light/gauge warns you when the oil is not circulating at the proper pressure or there is not enough oil. This light/gauge does not tell you the amount of oil in the engine. It is recommended that you not drive too many miles under this condition.
