Depending on your model of Hyundai, a dedicated warning light may illuminate instead of the master warning light. On occasions, a dedicated warning light may illuminate along with the master warning light. Certain Hyundai models may not be equipped with certain equipment.
Depending on your version of Hyundai, a message on the LCD dashboard display should inform you of further details. Warning messages will only apply to models of Hyundai that have the specified equipment.
