Honda Crosstour Dashboard Light Guide
The various lights on a car’s dashboard can be a mystery to many people. With some of today’s new car models, the dashboard lights become an even bigger mystery. But these lights are important and play a significant role in letting you know when something needs servicing.
If you own a Honda Crosstour (or are interested in buying one) it is important to gain a full understanding of the Crosstour’s features, including the car’s dashboard lights. This guide will help explain the most urgent of these lights.
Honda Crosstour Red Malfunction Lights
It’s very important to notice your Crosstour’s malfunction indicators when they illuminate so that your car has a long life and continues to serve you well. When these red warning lights come on, you should seek a solution as soon as you can. Your user manual explains the lights on the dashboard, and experts at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore in West Covina will also be glad to help further explain the car’s many features to you. But in the meantime, this guide will give you a good guide to the car’s most important red warning lights, including:
Low Oil Pressure Indicator
This is one of the most important warning lights to keep your eye on. The icon on this red indicator is of an oilcan. If it keeps coming on, this means that there is low oil pressure in the engine, which can result in severe damage to your Honda Crosstour. If this light is on, you are advised to stop the car and turn off the engine as soon as possible—you either have a temporary loss of oil pressure or there is not enough oil in the system. It’s critical to address this issue quickly.
Battery Charging System Indicator
This red indicator has the icon of a car battery and tells you whether the car’s battery is being charged or not. If the light is on, you should assume that the battery isn’t being charged and take the vehicle into a dealership as soon as you can to fix the charging system.
Supplemental Restraint System Indicator
This red indicator features the icon of a passenger wearing a seatbelt along with an airbag. When it illuminates it means that the car’s restraint system is malfunctioning. If you see this light, get your car serviced by a Honda Crosstour expert right away.
Other Red Condition Indicator Lights:
These are less critical, but important.
Parking Brake Indicator
This light featuring the word BRAKE indicates when that parking brake is engaged. It is simply letting you know you should release the brake. However, it may also be indicating low brake fluid, so be sure you have that checked by an expert right away.
Seat Belt Reminder
This red indicator features the icon of a person being restrained by seatbelts and is a gentle reminder that you should put your seatbelt on.
This red light is an indicator that one of your doors (or the tailgate) is still ajar. It’s telling you to close it for your own safety.
Other amber-colored lights that indicate less urgent problems include:
- Anti-Lock Brake System: Displayed as the letters ABS in a circle
- Electric Power Steering: Displayed as the letters EPS
- Daytime Running Lights: Displayed as a the letters DRL
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Displayed as TPMS
- Vehicle Stability Assist: Displayed as VSA®
