Warning Lights in Your Acura Vehicle
Have you ever wondered what the warning lights that pop up on your Acura vehicle’s instrument panel mean? If so, then you have come to the right place! The staff at Acura of Maui is here to help you, our customers, better understand what the warning lights in your Acura vehicle mean. The warning lights in your Acura are broken down into three categories—Malfunction Indicators, Condition Indicators, and On/Off Indicators. Let’s explore what these categories and their corresponding warning lights mean together!
Acura Malfunction Indicator Warning Lights
Malfunction Indicator warning lights in your Acura vehicle are the most critical warning lights that your Acura vehicle has. Whenever these lights turn on and remain lit while driving or while the car is running, that means there is an issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Some of these lights highlight an issue that you can address yourself, but the majority must be taken care of by a service technician. In these cases, make an appointment with our service department as soon as you can! The Malfunction Indicators are shown below.
Acura Condition Indicator Warning Lights
Condition Indicator warning lights may or may not require your immediate attention. The Parking Brake, Seat Belt Reminder, and System Message warning lights do not indicate an issue with the vehicle, while the Low Fuel, Low Tire Pressure, and Immobilizer warning lights indicate there is an issue with the vehicle that should be addressed as soon as possible. The Condition Indicators are shown below.
Acura On/Off Indicator Warning Lights
On/Off Indicator warning lights require no action from the driver. These warning lights simply indicate if a certain feature is active on your Acura vehicle. Obviously, if the High Beams ON or Turn Signals/Hazards ON lights are displayed on the instrument panel and you do not need these features, you should turn them off to avoid confusing or impairing other drivers on the road. The On/Off Indicators are shown below.
If you have any questions about specific warning lights, then you should consult your Acura vehicle’s Owner’s Manual or contact our staff here at Acura of Maui in Kahului, HI today!
