Warning Lights

These lights let you know that there’s a major problem with one of the integral systems in your Honda CR-V. A few of the most commonly seen warning lights include the following:

Brake System: This light illuminates to let you know that there’s a problem with the braking system. Check to see if the vehicle’s brake fluid is at the correct level. If it is, seek professional help immediately.

Charging System: If this light illuminates, the vehicle’s battery isn’t charging. Turn off all of the auxiliary electrical items and go directly to your local Honda service center for a battery replacement.

Low Oil Pressure: This light illuminates to let you know that the vehicle’s engine oil pressure is low. Stop the vehicle as soon as it’s safe to do so, open the vehicle’s hood, and check the oil level. If the oil level looks normal, seek professional help immediately.
