Idiot Lights- What do they mean?
What do those lights on your dashboard mean and what should you do?
For many years, these yellow, orange, green or red lights have been called "Idiot Lights" by mechanics, everyday people and pretty much everybody else.
However, each of these lights has a specific purpose. What you should do when they come on depends upon which light comes on and when it comes on. Consult your owner's manual or call Vatland Honda at 1-877-712-7388 for more information and what to do when one of your indicator lights comes on.
Many years ago, auto makers moved away from the many analog gauges that were on dashboards. They replaced the analog gauges with lights that would come on to provide visual alerts. Some of the alerts are for simple reminders like your cruise control or fog lamps being on. Others indicate that you may have a potential problem.
Above, we have listed the most common lights. Please keep in mind that this is not a complete list and these lights may vary by manufacturer. We sincerely hope that this helps you navigate your dashboard and prevents a potential problem in the future.
If any of your lights on the dash are on the contact our Service Center today.
