Honda Fit Dashboard Lights Irvine, CA
If the lights on your dashboard look more like hieroglyphics than intelligible notifications, then consider this 2016 Honda Fit dashboard light guide your personal translator. Although many of the indicator lights that Anaheim, Laguna Beach, and Lake Forest drivers are used to seeing go unchanged from year to year, we’d like to specify that for this guide, we’ll be referencing the 2018 model.
If you still have questions, contact a Honda service technician at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine.
Honda Fit Dashboard Lights
Malfunction indicators are the most critical symbols. Usually illuminated in red, these lights can alert you when important parts under the hood need to be repaired. A few common malfunction lights include the following:
- ECON indicator (green): If you see a little leafy plant on your dashboard, ECON mode has been activated.
- High-temperature indicator (red): Depicted as a thermometer and waves, if you see this indicator, you should pull over as soon as you can do so safely and shut off the engine to let it cool.
- Immobilizer indicator (green): his little key-shaped light indicates that the immobilizer system can’t recognize the information from your key fob. This issue should be inspected by a certified Honda service center as soon as possible.
- Low-temperature indicator (blue): This helpful light looks just like the high-temperature indicator except it’s blue instead of red. Once the engine has warmed up to operating temperature, the low-temperature indicator will turn off.
- Low tire pressure/TPMS indicator (yellow): What appears to be a horseshoe with an exclamation mark inside of it, this indicator alerts you to the fact that one or more of your tires has low pressure. If the light is blinking, then there may be a problem with the monitoring system itself.
- Malfunction indicator/check engine light (yellow): When you see that notorious yellow engine show up, it means that it’s time to get to a Honda service center because there may be a problem with the engine.
- Smart Entry System (yellow): A sideways key with an exclamation mark over it and what appears to be the symbol for WiFi signifies a problem with either the Smart Entry System or the push-button start system. It’s recommended that you have your Honda inspected as soon as possible.
- Vehicle Stability Assist System indicator (yellow): It looks like a car with swerving lines beneath it and can be solid or blinking. When it’s blinking, it means that the system is engaged, but if it stays lit (is solid), then there could be a problem with the system. However, if you see the word OFF illuminated under the indicator, then it’s just notifying you that the system is turned off.
