Many people are familiar with the common indicators that will light up on the dashboard of a car when a system is in use, such as turn signals or high-beam headlights. But what about the lesser seen warning lights? These lights are arguably more important because they let you know when your car needs to be taken to the Subaru mechanic near Oneida, Liverpool, and Syracuse. 

Here at Bill Rapp Subaru, we've compiled this list of the Subaru Crosstrek dashboard warning lights, as well as indicator lights, so you can care for your car properly. 

Subaru Crosstrek Warning Lights


When you see any of these warning lights appear on your dash, you should have your car seen by a Subaru specialist immediately as they indicate that one of the main systems of your car has an issue.      

  • Anti-lock brakes: In a yellow light, you'll see the letters ABS enclosed in a circle, indicating that there's something wrong with your anti-lock brake system.       
  • Brake system: Similar to the ABS warning, this light will also feature a circle, except this one is red and with an exclamation point, letting you know there's something wrong with your brake system.     
  • Check engine: The words check engine will appear in yellow light and verify that there's something wrong with your engine.      
  • SRS airbag system:  A seated person positioned behind a red dot lets you know that there's a malfunction with your airbag system.   
  • Oil pressure: Similar to the engine low oil level warning, an oil can will appear in red light, indicating that you should have your oil changed and system checked for any potential leaks.      
  • Charge warning: A red battery-shaped light will inform you that your engine isn't being charged effectively. A replacement of the battery and/or alternator may be needed if you see this light.      
  • Power steering: A red steering wheel next to an exclamation point indicates an issue with your power steering system.  

Indicator Lights in the 2019 Crosstrek

Other lights you may see are just your car's way of letting you know certain systems are currently engaged. If your Crosstrek has the available X-MODE®, you will see an outline of a car riding over an uneven surface to let you know the system is providing you with improved stability.

Also if equipped, your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek can let you know when the road surface is icy with the icon of a snowflake on the road as well as let you know when the available Hill Descent Control system is being used to help you safely travel down a steep decline.
