What Do Your Honda Warning Lights Mean?

Schedule Service Service Specials Parts Specials

It can be stressful when you’re driving along and suddenly one of the Honda Warning lights illuminates on your dashboard. Your immediate reaction might be that something is seriously wrong with your new Honda or used vehicle.

While some Honda warning lights are serious, such as your check engine light or battery light, others are simply a reminder. For example, the washer fluid light and the oil change light remind you to fill up your window washer fluid or schedule your next oil change. We’re going over some of the common warning lights you might see, so you’ll know what they mean, and you’ll be prepared to take action.
