A recent study found that millions of motorists are driving around with dashboard warning lights on and have no idea what they mean.

The poll of drivers by Fixter.co.uk found that one in ten drivers currently has a warning light of some sort on their car but hasn’t done anything about getting it fixed.

It also discovered that drivers leave it an average of 16 days before having the fault looked at and that only a quarter of them understood what the light meant.

To see if you’re smarter than the drivers questioned in the study we’ve come up with a list of dashboard lights – some warnings, others relating to various system operations. You just need to identify what each of the following relates to.
