Many questions have been floating around about what certain indicators and symbols on the dashboard mean in the 2012 Chrysler 2012, specifically about the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Change Oil Message, and Gas Cap Message.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
One of the things that make the 2012 Chrysler 200 unique is the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. TPMS is an electronic system that is designed to measure the pressure inside the four road tires and alert the driver when the pressure is getting low. But what do you do when the indicator light comes on?
The TPMS light is located in the instrument cluster. It will turn on and a chime will sound if the pressure is low in one or more of the tires. Once the light is illuminated, one or more of your tires is underinflated and should be inflated to meet the recommended standards of the tire manufacturer. This information is located on a placard on the inside edge of the driver’s side door.
Keep in mind that tire pressure changes with outdoor air temperature, so the tire pressure may not be accurate if being checked in a place such as an indoor garage in the winter. Some other things to keep in mind that tire pressure may increase from heat during operation. You should not reduce this normal pressure build up, or your tire pressure will be too low. Finally, do not use the TPMS warning light as a tire pressure gauge as it does not automatically turn off when the tire is back to proper pressure.
When your tire is properly inflated, you may have to drive for a while before the TPMS resets itself and the warning light turns off. It is possible that the warning light may stay on until all 4 tires are sufficiently inflated.
Check Gas Cap Message
If your vehicle diagnostic system detects a problem with the fuel filler cap, or the fuel filler cap is loose, improperly installed, or damaged, the word “Gascap” will appear in the odometer or the words “Check Gas Cap” will appear in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center. If this happens to you, properly tighten the fuel filler cap. However, if the problem continues, the message will appear the next time your 2012 Chrysler 200 is started. You should see your authorized service center as soon as possible.
Check Oil Message
Your vehicle comes equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. The “Change Oil” light will flash in the instrument center odometer for approximately 12 seconds, following a single audible chime. This is to indicate the next scheduled oil change interval. Or, the “Oil Change Required” message will flash in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center display for about 5 seconds, after a single chime has sounded. The engine oil change indicator system is duty cycle based. This means, the oil change interval may vary depending on your personal driving style.
As a side note, unless it is reset, this “Change Oil” or the “Oil Change Required” messages will continue to be illuminated each time you turn the ignition switch to the “on” position. To reset the oil change indicator system after performing the scheduled maintenance, turn the ignition switch to the “on” position, but do not start the engine. Next, fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly three times within ten seconds and turn the switch back to the “lock” position. If either of the messages still appears in your view, the system did not reset and you should repeat the previous action.
(If you have more questions for any of these messages that may appear, please refer to your Owner’s Manual.)
Chrysler Dashboard Warning Lights and Symbols
Check Engine Light / Service Engine Soon
The check engine light, also known as the service engine soon light, comes on when the on-board diagnostic system detects a problem with either the engine, emission system, or transmission.
A fault code gets stored in the Engine Control Unit (ECU) and can be retrieved with an OBD-II scanner to find out what is wrong with the vehicle.
Common causes of the check engine light:
- Loose fuel cap
- P0420 catalytic converter failure
- Emission control system failure
- O2 sensor failure
- Dirty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
Air Bag Warning Light
The airbag light turns on when you first turn on the ignition, but after a quick system check, it turns off if all the airbag components function properly.
If the airbag light stays, it means the airbags have been disabled and may not deploy in case of an accident.
To troubleshoot the airbag light you will need to read the fault codes with an airbag scanner.
Common causes of the air bag warning light:
- Dead battery
- Faulty clock spring
- A damaged passenger weight sensor
Engine Temperature Indicator
This is the warning symbol indicating that the engine has overheated. Pullover immediately and shut off the engine. Wait at least 30 minutes or more for the engine to cool down fully.
Once the engine cools down, check the engine coolant level.
If the engine overheating continues, do not drive. Call an auto mechanic for advice or tow the vehicle to an auto repair shop near you.

- Fault with ABS or brakes
Adaptive Cruise Control
This light means that adaptive cruise control (ACC) is on. While this is active the vehicle will cruise at a set speed and will slow down if approaching a vehicle in front of it.
If the exclamation point is next to the adaptive cruise control light that means there is a fault and it needs to be serviced. Diagnostic trouble codes can be scanned with an ABS scan tool.
Master Warning Light
The master warning light means there is a common fault happening. Check the dash for a message detailing the problem. This message will appear on the information display every time the ignition is turned on. Fix the problem causing the error for the master warning light to go off.
Common causes of the master warning light on a Toyota vehicle:
- No key warning
- Low windshield-washer fluid warning
- Parking brake release warning
- Door/trunk open warning
- Loose fuel cap
- Low tire pressure warning
Auto Start-Stop Indicator
This light means the auto start-stop function has had a fault. Have the vehicle scanned with a professional OBDII scan tool. The vehicle will need to be serviced to turn off this warning indicator. If the light came on after a new battery install, it may be the wrong kind of battery causing the problem.
Hybrid Ready Indicator
This light means the hybrid vehicle's system checks have passed. It is ready to drive and will use the hybrid battery power and EV motor as long as this light is active. If the ready light goes off on a hybrid vehicle it may be out of power or unable to drive.
Hybrid Service Indicator
This light means the hybrid-electric system needs to be serviced. Have the system scanned with a professional OBDII scan tool to pull the stored hybrid system diagnostic trouble codes. Take the vehicle to a trained hybrid technician to be serviced.
Hybrid Power Limitation Indicator
This warning illuminates when vehicle acceleration is limited due to a reduction in electric motor performance. This happens when the vehicle's hybrid battery charge is very low.

1. Temperature Gauge
The temperature gauge shows engine coolant temperature.
Any reading below the red mark of the gauge shows that the engine cooling system is operating properly. The gauge pointer may show a higher than normal temperature when driving in hot weather, up mountain grades, in heavy stop and go traffic, or when towing a trailer.
If the pointer rises to the H (red) mark, the instrument cluster will sound a chime. Pull over and stop the vehicle.
Idle the vehicle with the air conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If the pointer remains on the H (red) mark, turn the engine off immediately and call for service.
There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat condition. If your air conditioning is on, turn it off. The air conditioning system adds heat to the engine cooling system and turning off the A/C removes this heat. You can also turn the Temperature control to maximum heat, the Mode control to Floor and the Fan control to High. This allows the heater core to act as a supplement to the radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling system.
2. Fuel Door Reminder
This is a reminder that the Fuel Filler Door is located on the left side of the vehicle.
3. Fuel Gauge
When the ignition switch is in the ON/RUN position, the pointer will show the level of fuel remaining in the fuel tank.
Indicates the vehicle speed in miles per hour (MPH) and kilometers per hour (km/h).
5. Low Fuel Light
When the fuel level drops to approximately 2.0 gallons (7.6 Liters), the fuel symbol will light and a single chime will sound.
This light will remain on until a minimum of approximately 3.0 gallons of fuel is added.
6. Charging System Light
This light shows the status of the electrical charging system. The light should come on briefly when the ignition is first turned on and remain on briefly as a bulb check. If the light stays on or comes on while driving, turn off some of the vehicle’s electrical devices, such as the Front Fog Lights or Rear Window Defroster.
If the Charging System Light remains on, it means that the vehicle is experiencing a problem with the charging system. Obtain SERVICE IMMEDIATELY. See your local authorized dealer.
If jump starting is required, refer to “Jump Starting Procedures” in “What To Do In Emergencies”.
7. Air Bag Warning Light
This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN. If the light is either not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” for further information.
8. Seat Belt Reminder Light
When the ignition switch is first turned to ON/ RUN, this light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check. During the bulb check, if the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, a chime will sound.
After the bulb check or when driving, if the driver seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Warning Light will flash or remain on continuously. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” for further information.
9. Oil Pressure Warning Light
This light indicates low engine oil pressure. The light will come on and remain on when the ignition switch is turned from the OFF to the ON/RUN position, and the light will turn off after the engine is started. If the bulb does not come on during starting, have the system checked by an authorized dealer.
If the light comes on and remains on while driving, stop the vehicle and shut off the engine. DO NOT OPERATE THE VEHICLE UNTIL THE CAUSE IS CORRECTED. The light does not show the quantity of oil in the engine.
This can be determined using the procedure shown in “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
10. Engine Temperature Warning Light
This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
As engine coolant temperatures rise and the gauge approaches H , this indicator will illuminate and a single chime will sound after reaching a set threshold. Further overheating will cause the temperature gauge to pass H , the indicator will continuously flash and a continuous chime will occur until the engine is allowed to cool.
If the light turns on while driving, safely pull over and stop the vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and idle the vehicle.
If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off immediately and call for service. Refer to “If Your Engine Overheats” in “What To Do In Emergencies” for further information.
11. Brake Warning Light
This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system.
The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure to a portion of the hydraulic system. Failure of either half of the dual brake system is indicated by the Brake Warning Light which will turn on when the brake fluid level in the master cylinder has dropped below a specified level.
The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.
The light may flash momentarily during sharp cornering maneuvers which change fluid level conditions.
The vehicle should have service performed, and the brake fluid level checked.
If brake failure is indicated, immediate repair is necessary.
Driving a vehicle with the brake light on is dangerous.
Part of the brake system may have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a collision. Have the vehicle checked immediately.
Vehicles equipped with Anti-Lock brakes (ABS), are also equipped with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD).
In the event of an EBD failure, the Brake Warning Light will turn on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the ABS system is required.
The operation of the BrakeWarning Light can be checked by turning the ignition switch from the OFF position to the ON/RUN position. The light should illuminate for approximately three seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking brake is applied or a brake fault is detected. If the light does not illuminate, have the light inspected by an authorized dealer.
The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition switch in the ON/RUN position.
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree of brake application.
The silver area of the scale shows the permissible engine revolutions-per-minute (RPM x 1000) for each gear range.
Before reaching the red area, ease up on the accelerator to prevent engine damage.
13. Shift Lever Indicator
The Shift Lever Indicator is self-contained within the instrument cluster. It displays the gear position of the automatic transmission.
You must apply the brakes before shifting from PARK.
14. Odometer Display/Trip Odometer Display
The odometer display shows the total distance the vehicle has been driven. U.S. Federal regulations require that upon transfer of vehicle ownership, the seller certify to the purchaser the correct mileage that the vehicle has been driven. If your odometer needs to be repaired or serviced, the repair technician should leave the odometer reading the same as it was before the repair or service. If s/he cannot do so, then the odometer must be set at zero, and a sticker must be placed in the door jamb stating what the mileage was before the repair or service. It is a good idea for you to make a record of the odometer reading before the repair/service, so that you can be sure that it is properly reset, or that the door jamb sticker is accurate if the odometer must be reset at zero.
The two trip odometers show individual trip mileage. To switch from odometer to trip odometers, press and release the Trip Odometer button. To reset a trip odometer, display the desired trip odometer to be reset then push and hold the button until the display resets (approximately 2 seconds). Refer to “Trip Odometer Button” for additional information.

19. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) OFF Indicator Light — If Equipped
This light indicates the Electronic Stability Control system (ESC) has been turned off by the driver.
20. Turn Signal Indicators
The arrows will flash in unison with the exterior turn signal, when using the turn signal lever. A chime will sound if the vehicle is driven more than 1 mile (1.6 km) with either turn signal on.
If either indicator flashes at a rapid rate, check for a defective outside light bulb.
21. Front Fog Light Indicator — If Equipped
This indicator will illuminate when the front fog lights are on.
22. Vehicle Security Light — If Equipped
This light will flash rapidly for approximately 16 seconds when the alarm system is arming.
The light will begin to flash slowly indicating that the system is armed. The light will stop flashing when the vehicle is disarmed.
23. Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light — If Equipped
This light monitors the ABS. This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to the ON/RUN position and may stay on for approximately three seconds.
If the ABS light remains on or comes on during driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required, however, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally provided that the BRAKE warning light is not on.
If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore the benefit of Anti-Lock Brakes.
The ABS warning light should be checked frequently to assure that it is operating properly. Turn the ignition key to the on position, but do not start the vehicle. The light should come on. If the light does not come on, have the system inspected by an authorized dealer.
24. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/ Malfunction Indicator Light — If Equipped
The “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will come on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position. It should go out with the engine running. If the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” comes on continuously with the engine running, a malfunction has been detected in the ESC system. If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), see your authorized dealer as soon as possible to have the problem diagnosed and corrected.
• The “ESC Off Indicator Light” and the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” come on momentarily each time the ignition switch is turned to ON/RUN.
• Each time the ignition is turned to ON/RUN, the ESC system will be ON, even if it was turned off previously.
• The ESC system will make buzzing or clicking sounds when it is active. This is normal; the sounds will stop when ESC becomes inactive following the maneuver that caused the ESC activation.
25. Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.) As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.
Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists.
When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant from a can or balance beads if your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the sensors may result.
26. Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is part of an onboard diagnostic system called OBD that monitors emissions, engine, and automatic transmission control systems. The light will illuminate when the key is in the ON/RUN position before engine start. If the bulb does not come on when turning the key from LOCK to ON/RUN, have the condition checked promptly.
Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate the light after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on through several of your typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally and will not require towing.
Prolonged driving with the MIL on could cause damage to the engine control system. It also could affect fuel economy and drivability. If the MIL is flashing, severe catalytic converter damage and power loss will soon occur. Immediate service is required.
A malfunctioning catalytic converter, as referenced above, can reach higher temperatures than in normal operating conditions. This can cause a fire if you drive slowly or park over flammable substances such as dry plants, wood, cardboard, etc. This could result in death or serious injury to the driver, occupants or others.
27. Transmission Temperature Warning Light — If Equipped
This light indicates that the transmission fluid temperature is running hot. This may occur with severe usage, such as trailer towing. If this light turns on while driving, safely pull over and stop the vehicle. Then, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and run the engine at idle or faster until the light turns off.
Continuous driving with the Transmission TemperatureWarning Light illuminated will eventually cause severe transmission damage or transmission failure.
If the Transmission Temperature Warning Light is illuminated and you continue operating the vehicle, in some circumstances you could cause the fluid to boil over, come in contact with hot engine or exhaust components and cause a fire.
28. High Beam Indicator
This light indicates that the headlights are on high beam. Pull the turn signal lever toward the steering wheel to switch the headlights to low beam.

And gorgeous snow outside the windows, to questions about my personal life that were aimed at me. Masha, surprisingly, did not have a boyfriend, and I had a pretty serious chance to finally get a girlfriend.

I sat in my office and freaked out from the heat. I didnt want to work, but I also didnt have any thoughts about where to sharpen my skis. The phone rang disgustingly - again some client was itching to do so. I lifted the receiver listlessly and exhaled into it: "Hu?" - "Hello!" - I heard in response after a short silence. "Hello!" - just in case, I professionally repulsed.
