Know Your Honda Warning Lights

Depending on model and trim you drive around Somersworth, the warning lights in your Honda may vary but could include the following:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring: This light indicates the vehicle has inadequate tire pressure or improperly inflated tires.
  • All-Wheel Drive: For vehicles equipped with AWD, a blinking indicator light means that the system has overheated or malfunctioned and requires immediate service. A steady light means the system is engaged.
  • Electronic Power Steering: A problem with the EPS system could prevent the vehicle from responding as it should during emergency maneuvers, so it should be checked.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist: This light indicates a problem with VSA or Hill Start Assist system, which could fail during aggressive driving or when trying to start the vehicle on an incline in Somersworth.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: A problem with this system could prevent the vehicle from maintaining proper following distance and might cause a collision if the driver loses focus.
  • Oil Pressure Indicator: Low oil pressure could indicate a leak within the system or that the vehicle is burning excessive oil.
  • Antilock Braking: A problem with the ABS means the brakes will not function as they should and could overheat.
  • Supplemental Restraint System: An issue with the airbags or seatbelt sensors can cause this light to activate.
  • Check Engine Light: This light could indicate a problem with the emissions control system, that the engine is ready for service, or other serious issues.
  • Lane Keeping Assist: The Lane Keeping Assist System light could mean a problem with the autonomous steering function.
