Answer: Anti-lock brake warning

Your car’s anti-lock braking system works to allow your tyres to maintain contact with the road in bad driving conditions such as rain or snow or when you stop your car quickly. It keeps your tyres from locking up, causing your car to skid. If the ABS light illuminates while you’re driving it means that the system isn’t working properly and it might not work when you brake.

Answer: Battery charge warning light

A car’s battery runs everything electrical – the engine’s control computer, the radio, the headlights, the ignition system, etc. To keep it running, all cars have a built-in recharging system. If the battery charge warning light comes on it means that the system isn’t working at that your battery is going to die soon.

If your car’s traction control light comes on it means that the system is active. You should have it on when driving in slick conditions.
