Dashboard Warning Lights

Dashboard Warning Lights The dashboard lights are a way for your Acura RDX to communicate with you. When you see a warning light appear on the dashboard, it is the RDX alerting you of an issue with a specific system or part within your vehicle.

That way, you can get your vehicle fixed immediately so it returns to performing the way it should. Some of these warning lights include:

Malfunction Indicator Lamp: This is known as the check engine light, and it comes on when there is a problem with the emissions control system.

Charging System Indicator: If the battery isn’t charging properly, a picture of a car battery will appear on the dashboard.

Low Tire Pressure Indicator: When any of the tires become underinflated, this light, which looks like a tire with an exclamation point inside, comes on.

Electric Power Steering System Indicator: When a steering wheel next to an exclamation point appears on the dashboard, there is a problem with this system.

Brake System Indicator: The word BRAKE is shown on the dashboard any time the brake fluid level is too low or there is an issue within the braking system.


Additional Dashboard Lights in Your RDX

Additional Dashboard Lights in Your RDX Beyond warning indicators, there are also other lights you may see on the dashboard of your Acura RDX while driving around. This includes the gear position indicator, turn signal indicator, and high beam indicator. When these come on, it is your RDX letting you know exactly what systems are engaged.

This way, you’ll never forget if you left something on or you are in the wrong gear. Along with these indicators, there are also other safety indicators to let you know when certain systems are in use or not. You will also be able to tell if the Vehicle Stability Assist® is on or off and what other safety systems are currently engaged.

Any time you see a tool wrench, this is your RDX letting you know it is time to schedule your next maintenance appointment.
