Honda Civic Dashboard Light GuideHonda vehicles offer some of the most advanced technology on the market, and it’s no surprise if you know even a little bit about Honda as a company. As one of the front runners in the technology game, Honda is always looking for new ways to make life a little easier with the use of technology. This push for progress can also be seen in their vehicles, specifically in the dashboard light system their vehicles are equipped with.

The Honda Civic dashboard light system has two kinds of lights: warning lights and indicator lights. Warning lights let you know that there’s a problem that needs immediate attention. Indicator lights let you know a particular situation needs your attention.

For your convenience, we’ve listed a few of the most popular lights of each type.

Warning Lights

  • Charging System Indicator Light: This light illuminates to let you know there’s a problem with the vehicle charging system. This could include the alternator, starter engine, or vehicle battery. Turn off all electronic accessories (such as heat, radio, etc.) and take the vehicle directly to your local service center.
  • Engine Overheating Warning Light: This light illuminates to let you know that the vehicle’s engine is or is in danger of overheating. As soon as it’s safe to do so, pull over and contact your local Honda service department. Driving with this light illuminated could cause irreparable engine damage.
  • Low Oil Pressure: This light illuminates to let you know that the vehicle’s engine oil pressure has dropped. This could indicate the need for an oil change, an oil leak, or a problem with the pressure sensor. As soon as it’s safe to do so, pull over contact your local Honda service department for further instructions.

Indicator Lights

  • Honda Civic in BlueCheck Engine Light: Probably one of the most worrisome of the indicator lights, this light illuminates to let you know there’s a problem with the vehicle’s emissions control system, such as a loose gas cap or the need for spark plug replacement or an oil change.
  • Low Fuel: This light indicates that the Honda Civic’s fuel is at a critical level. It usually illuminates when the level reaches around 1 gallon and will turn off when you refill the tank.
  • Low Tire Pressure: The tire pressure monitoring system will let you know when one or more of your vehicle’s tires is underinflated. To get the light to turn off, ensure that all of the tires are properly inflated.
