Tesla Model S: Indicator Lights

Indicator lights display along the top of the instrument panel to show status and alert you of specific vehicle conditions.

A brake system fault is detected or the brake fluid level is low. Contact Tesla immediately.

A brake booster fault has been detected.

An ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) fault is detected. Contact Tesla immediately.

A parking brake fault is detected. Contact Tesla.

The parking brake is manually applied.

Tire pressure warning. The pressure of a tire is out of range. If a fault with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is detected, the indicator flashes. For a TPMS fault, contact Tesla.

A seat belt for an occupied seat is not fastened.

Airbag safety. If this red indicator does not flash on briefly when Model S prepares to drive, or if it remains on, contact Tesla immediately.

Front fog lights are on, if equipped.

Parking lights (side marker lights, tail lights, and license plate lights) are on.

Low beam headlights are on.

High beam headlights are on. Illuminates when high beams are on but the Auto High Beam setting is turned off or if the Auto High Beam setting is turned on but is temporarily unavailable.

High beam headlights are currently turned on, and Auto High Beam is ready to turn off the high beams if light is detected in front of Model S.

High beam headlights are temporarily turned off because Auto High Beam is on and is detecting light in front of Model S. When light is no longer detected, the high beams automatically turn back on.

This indicator flashes amber when the electronic stability control systems are actively minimizing wheel spin by controlling brake pressure and motor power. If this indicator remains on, a fault is detected and you should immediately contact Tesla.

If a fault is detected that reduces the performance of the air suspension system, this amber indicator light displays. If the problem persists, contact Tesla.

If a fault is detected that disables the air suspension system, this red indicator light displays. Contact Tesla.

Vehicle Hold is actively applying the brakes.

Electronic stability control systems are no longer minimizing wheel spin.

Model S is in Transport mode and can roll freely. It does not automatically shift into Park when you exit.

A blue snowflake appears when some of the energy stored in the Battery may not be available due to cold weather conditions. During these cold weather conditions, charging rates may also be limited. If Model S is plugged in, you can heat your Battery by turning on climate control with the mobile app. The snowflake disappears when the Battery is sufficiently warm.

Vehicle power is currently being limited because the energy remaining in the Battery is low, the vehicle's systems are being heated or cooled, or an error is detected by the drive inverter.
