Nissan Warning Lights & Indicators
Distinguishing between the types of messages your Nissan is sending is step one in getting to the bottom of a mystery dash light. Nissans help you do this by delineating dashboard lights into two categories: indicators and warnings.
Warning lights, which glow in attention grabbing hues (typically amber or red), indicate time-sensitive issues that require prompt action on the part of the driver. This could be a warning of low tire pressure or a malfunction with ABS.
Indicator lights, on the other hand, are straightforward signals that let you know the operational status of an external or internal system. Typically green, blue or white in color, these dash lights glow to show that your headlights are on or that traction control is working.
Advanced Internal Systems in Nissan Vehicles
Many Nissan vehicles come equipped with advanced driver assistance technologies. From help with lane keeping to forward collision warnings, these protective programs also communicate through the dashboard to help you adjust your driving behavior. Our light guides introduce you to the symbols that correspond to each system so that you can use these aids to the fullest.
When to Seek Help Sooner
Getting acquainted with these various symbols that pop up in your Nissan ahead of time helps you better understand the mechanisms at work and gauge the severity of a problem at first light. Whether that means simply pulling over to tighten your gas cap or stopping by Cherry Hill Nissan’s Service Department for a routine fix or major repair, you’ll be better prepared on every drive.
