Your vehicle has many ways of telling you that that something is wrong. One convenient way is through its dashboard lights. Here is what some of the most common dashboard lights on your vehicle mean:
- Check Engine Light: The little yellow submarine (not the one the Beatles live in) means there is potentially an issue with your engine. Some issues could be minor, while others could be major. Ignoring the light, however, will only lead to more expensive repairs, so it’s best to bring your vehicle to our service center right away.
- Antilock Brake Warning: When you see ABS in a circle and parentheses, it means there is a problem with your antilock brake system that needs to be addressed.
- Oil Pressure Warning: This light, which looks like a dripping teapot or genie’s lamp, indicates that you are possibly low on oil (or else there is a problem with the system). Get this checked out by a professional.
- Tire Pressure Warning Light: This yellow exclamation point in a strange U shape means that one of your tires has low pressure. If you fill the low tire and the light comes back on, your tire likely has a leak that needs to be patched.
If there are other illuminated lights on your vehicle’s dashboard and you’re not quite sure what to do, just bring your vehicle in to our Service Department here at Hardin County Honda and we’ll take care of it for you.
