Exclamation Warning light

I don't have an owners manual. I have a 2004 LS 430. A red triangle with exclamation mark in the middle just lit up on my dash. What does that mean?

there should be a message in the display indicating what that triangle is on for... like... brake wear... low tire pressure... maintenance required... etc...

You can download a pdf copy of the owners manual from the Lexus web site. Or, as owner, I think you can get them to mail you a hard copy free.

Check it out.

That red triangle is different than the "check engine" light which is your normal indicator that looks like an engine. The red triangle is warning light for things like low tire pressure, battery low (for key), brakes on, etc. If no one posts yet, I'll post later from the manual what that light covers. There was an extensive list (about 10 items I think) that it covered.

It has red triangle with exclamation mark and to the left it says maint reqd. It doesn't specifically say if there is an actual problem.

I think it is tied to when you are suppose to have a service done. It popped on because I was within miles of needing an oil change.

It would be more accurate if a green "$" popped up.
