Malfunction Indicator Lights
Brake System – When you see this dashboard light, it could mean your brake fluid is low or there is a possible malfunction within your braking system. If your brake pedal feels normal when you press on it, it’s more than likely you just need some fresh brake fluid. However, if it feels spongy or unusual in any way, have your Honda CR-V serviced at an authorized dealership right away.
Low Oil Pressure – This dashboard light indicates that the oil pressure in your vehicle is low. If you see this light, stop when it is safe to do so and check the oil. If this light does not turn off after doing so, contact your local Honda dealer to repair your vehicle immediately, as this could cause dangerous issues down the line.
Battery Charging System – If this light illuminates in your Honda CR-V, your battery might not be charging. When it is safe to do so, pull over and turn off your car. Make sure you turn off all electrical items as well to prevent further battery damage. Then, get in contact with a certified Honda technician to see what to do next.
Condition Indicator Lights
Parking Brake – This dashboard light turns on when your parking brake is in use. Before driving, make sure to disengage it. If you don’t, you’ll hear a beep to let you know it is not fully released.
Low Fuel – As you probably already know, this light indicates that your Honda CR-V is low on gas. Fuel up as soon as possible to prevent possible danger on the road. If this light starts to blink, there could be a problem with your fuel gauge that should be assessed by a professional.
Low Tire Pressure – If the air is low in your tires, this dashboard light will come as you’re driving. If this happens, park in a safe spot and check your tires. If they need air, add it to prevent a blowout or flat tire. If the pressure appears fine, your tire gauge may be faulty and it’s time to schedule an appointment at our service center.
Seat Belt Reminder – This dashboard light will shine when to make sure everyone in your cabin is wearing their safety belt. If the driver our front passenger does not have it on when you start to move, it will blink to remind you to fasten it. If it remains on after all belts are clicked, have your system checked out by a certified professional.
