Dashboard Lights Provide Warnings You Shouldn't Ignore

The dashboard lights have a purpose in turning on, and though you may be in a hurry, you should know what they mean. Keep in mind that not all warning signals are universal. If you have any concerns about which of the lights have the most importance, contact the service staff at Hendrick Honda Hickory.

Together, you and our staff in Hickory, NC can keep your vehicle in tip-top shape for many years. Here are a few of the most common dashboard lights, along with their meanings:

  • Check Engine Light: When lit, your car may have issues with the oxygen sensor, a loose or missing gas cap, poor spark plugs, or the catalytic converter
  • Coolant Light: This indicator tells you to check the amount of coolant, the fan, or the radiator cap
  • Battery Light: This light indicates that the battery’s voltage is low and that the vehicle’s system is not properly charging

When you don’t know what could be happening with your car, do yourself a favor and let our service staff explore these issues in greater detail.
