We here at Arrowhead Honda strive to provide Peoria, Glendale, Sun City, Phoenix, West Valley, and Surprise drivers with the information they need in order to take the best care of their vehicles. Here, we're going to be taking a look at dashboard lights.
If you drive a Honda Insight, review the following information to get the basics about this important aspect of your vehicle's operation. Doing so will help you to become more familiar with what these lights look like and what they mean. Contact us today for more information.
The brake system dashboard light in your Honda Insight will be red and consist of the word BRAKE in all capital letters. If you see this light come on, there are two things it could be indicating. It could be telling you that you're running low on brake fluid or that there's a malfunction in the brake system. Be sure to take your Insight to a certified mechanic to have the situation checked out.
If you see a dashboard light that looks like an oil can with a drop of oil coming out of it, your oil could be running low. If this is the case, go ahead and fill it up as needed. If the light doesn't go away, you're going to want to have it looked at by an automotive technician.
The symbol for the charging system looks like your standard car battery. It will be activated when the battery in the Insight is not charging. This will require immediate attention.
The Supplemental Restraint System dashboard light is there to tell you that there's a problem with one of the airbag systems, or one of the seatbelt tensioners is not working properly. Its symbol is an illustration of a seated individual wearing a seatbelt next to an inflated airbag.
The Malfunction Indication Lamp is also known as the Check Engine Light. It looks like an engine block. The activation of this light can be caused by a number of things. For instance, there could be a problem with the car's emissions control system, the fuel cap could be loose or missing, or the engine's cylinders could be misfiring. If you notice that this light is on or blinking, take your Honda Insight to an automotive technician right away. To get more information on the Honda Insight, read our car review.
