The first time a yellow or red flashing light illuminates the dashboard it can be puzzling, but it doesn't have to be. We at Arrowhead Honda want you to have all the knowledge necessary to understand your Honda Odyssey dashboard lights and warnings.
Whether it's the seatbelt warning indicator or the check engine warning light, it's necessary to know the difference.
Our comprehensive guide below was designed for the drivers in and around the Glendale, Peoria, Phoenix, Sun City, Surprise, and West Valley areas to feel confident when an unknown dashboard light or symbol appears. Schedule a service appointment for further assistance.
The seatbelt reminder indicator will illuminate your dashboard to inform you that the driver or front passenger is not wearing their seatbelt. It will continue to blink while driving until both the driver and front passenger have secured their seatbelts.
This red dashboard light will appear to tell you that the vehicle battery isn't charging properly or at all. If this indicator illuminates while driving, safely pull over to the side of the road and contact your authorized dealer immediately. Since the battery system could lose power, it's best to be stopped safely when you call for service.
The check engine light in the Honda Odyssey will come on when there may be a problem with the emissions control system, and blinks when a misfire in the engine's cylinder is detected. If this light appears or blinks while driving, it's recommended to have your vehicle inspected at your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
This dashboard light will let you know if the tire pressure in one or more of your tires has become significantly low. When it's safe to do so, pull over your vehicle and inspect your tires, and inflate the tires if necessary. If the warning does not go away through regular driving, contact your authorized dealer and schedule a service appointment.
If this "ABS" light appears, it means that your anti-lock brake system isn't operating properly. Your traditional brakes will still function normally, assuming that the "BRAKE" light isn't also on, but there will be no anti-lock brake capability.
This "BRAKE" light will illuminate on your dashboard to tell you that the parking brake on the Odyssey is still engaged, or that your brake system isn't functioning properly. It can also mean that the brake fluid is running low. If this light remains on after the parking brake is disengaged, safely stop the car and check the brake fluid. If the brake pedal feels soft or mushy, contact your authorized dealer immediately and have your vehicle serviced.
A low fuel indicator light will turn on when your Honda Odyssey model's fuel tank has approximately 3.6 gallons left. It'll remain on until you replenish your vehicle's fuel supply.
An oil can appearing to drip oil will illuminate on your dashboard if your oil pressure drops below its operational level. If this comes on while driving, pull safely off the road and check the oil level promptly, and refill if needed. Contact your authorized dealer and have the vehicle repaired as soon as possible if the light does not go away.
We at Arrowhead Honda hope that this thorough guide leaves you feeling better with your new or continued wealth of knowledge on your Honda Odyssey dashboard lights and warnings. However, we know that not all your questions can be answered by simply reading one guide. If you have any questions or some of these lights start to appear, we suggest that you stop by or contact our service center to schedule an appointment today!
We're glad to serve the drivers of Glendale, Peoria, Phoenix, Sun City, Surprise, and West Valley with all their car service questions and needs.
