Just planning ahead...just in case.

I know some warning lights are more serious than others...for example the oil pressure light. But what specific warning lights or what colour or what flashing sequence would mean to stop driving the car ASAP?

on recent GM cars....
the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT... if it comes on and FLASHES... this means- STOP- dont drive the vehicle.... as serious damage can occur.

if it comes on and stays solid... its oK to drive--- but get the vehicle looked at...

dont forget--- that many lights are still considered IDIOT lights...
meaning that they light up when something bad is already happening...
This compared to actual gauges where you can look at the level of something...

But even some of todays gauges are also dummied up to sit in a position eventhough conditions are changing quite a bit.
