Urgent Lights

  • BRAKE—This red light indicates a problem with the brake system, including when the brake fluid level is low. Braking is essential to your safety, so find a safe space to pull over and call a Honda technician for assistance.
  • Parking Sensor System—This icon looks like a “P” and indicates an error with the parking brake. Keep this in mind when you pull over and call for help.
  • The Malfunction Indicator Lamp could refer to varying potential problems with the engine. Whether it’s emissions, cylinders, or something else, an expert Honda tech will be able to diagnose it.
  • The Supplemental Restraint System—This icon looks like a belted passenger with circle. When lit, it indicates an issue with the system itself, side airbag, or seatbelt tensioner. This should be checked out by a technician ASAP.
  • The high and low temperature indicators look like a floating thermometer and are tied to the coolant temperature. When blue, the temperature is below ideal conditions. When red, it is hotter than optimal.
  • Electric Power Steering—This icon looks like a steering wheel with (!) and indicates a problem with the electric power steering system. Drive carefully and contact a Honda technician.
  • The Tire Pressure Monitoring System icon looks like a (!) and lights up when it detects low tire pressure in one of your tires. Contact your nearest tire center for advice on your next move.
