Pay Attention to Your Vehicle Warning Indicator System!

dashboard lightsYour vehicle is equipped with a Vehicle Warning Indicator system. This is a technical term for all those little icons that light up in your dash. A few common indicators you should know are:

Check Engine

This could mean a routine maintenance task is needed. It may also mean that a sudden engine issue has arisen. When you see this light, get your vehicle in for an inspection immediately!

Coolant Temp

See a thermometer icon light up? You will probably notice your temperature gauge is rising as well. Your vehicle is overheating, a condition that could permanently damage your engine. Possible issues could be a faulty thermostat or a busted hose. Either way, get it checked out!

Battery

If your battery indicator lights up, there is possibly an issue with the battery, your alternator, or both. Most car parts stores will check the battery for free. Do it soon before you’re left stranded somewhere!

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

This one is simple. At least one tire is low. Hopefully you’ve got a tire gauge in your glove box (if you don’t, get one!). Pull over somewhere safe and check your tires.

Unfortunately, a lot of people ignore their Vehicle Warning Indicators. If you do, you are losing out on a fantastic diagnostic/warning system that is designed for the sole purpose of protecting your vehicle and keeping it in top-notch shape.




See REO Speedwagon at Live at the Gardens

concertSome musicians have it and lose it, while others start rock-n-rolling but never stop. Count REO Speedwagon among the latter. They hit the scene 40 years ago and started churning out hit after hit, including “Keep on Lovin’ You” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling.” After all was said and done, they would have thirteen Top 40 hits. They have sold over 40 million records to date.

Luckily for us, they haven’t thrown in the towel yet. In fact, you can catch REO Speedwagon at Live at the Garden on August 25th. Show starts at 8:00pm.

The Live at the Garden concert series has been inviting top-notch musical acts to Memphis since 2001. Everyone from Al Green to Diana Ross to Duran Duran to Sheryl Crow has graced the stage. Nowhere else can you find such great music in such a beautiful venue as the Memphis Botanical Gardens.

Can’t fight this Feeling? You don’t have to. Go and see REO Speedwagon at Live at the Gardens!
