Nissan Dashboard Warning Lights Explained For Orlando, Florida

If a warning light has appeared on the dashboard of your new Nissan Altima or you want to know more about how to diagnose a check engine light, we invite you to contact the professionals in the service department at Sutherlin Nissan Of Orlando. Our team of factory-trained auto mechanics is proud to maintain your new Nissan Titan truck and can quickly diagnose any warning light on the dashboard of your Nissan.

It is important to point out that many indicator lights don't represent a malfunction with your Nissan or a cause for concern. Many lights on your dashboard function to indicate that various systems in your vehicle are functioning properly. For example, the headlamps, high beams, and cruise control all illuminate a symbol on your dash to let you know that the lights are on. If you have questions about what any of the dashboard warning lights mean on your new Nissan Rogue crossover, you can get in touch with our service department, consult your owner's manual, or continue reading to match the picture of the warning light with a brief explanation.


Check Engine

Check Engine Light

One of the most common dashboard warning lights, the check engine light appears when the computer in your new Nissan detects any one of a number of abnormalities. Anything from a mass airflow sensor to not tightening your car's gas cap could trigger a trouble code for the check engine light. Bring your vehicle to our service department, and we can diagnose the malfunction and reset the code.

Coolant

Coolant Temperature

This dashboard warning light activates when the temperature in your car's engine begins to rise above the ideal operating range. If this light appears, it's best to pull over and let your car cool down. Remember to never remove the radiator cap when the vehicle is hot. Wait for your car to cool, then add coolant or distilled water as needed then head to the nearest Nissan service station.


Service

Service Soon

If your vehicle is due for its next oil change, tire rotation, or regularly scheduled maintenance, this dashboard warning light could appear. This warning light could also indicate an internal issue is present. We recommend contacting the service department at our Winter Park, Florida, area Nissan dealership to diagnose and clear the trouble code.

Parking Breaks

Parking Brake and Brake Fluid Warning Light

This indicator light will come on when you start your vehicle. The warning light will turn off after a few seconds if the system is operating properly and when you release the parking brake. If this light stays on after you start your car, you could have a low level of brake fluid in your vehicle. You should book a brake inspection immediately at Sutherlin Nissan Of Orlando for a quick brake inspection.


Anti-Lock Breaks

Anti-lock Brakes

Similar to the Brake Fluid Warning Light, this indicator activates when you first start your car and should turn off after a few seconds. If the light remains after you start your car, something may be wrong with the anti-lock brake system on your pre-owned Nissan sedan. We recommend a brake inspection if that is the case.

Cruise COntrol

Cruise Control

This light activates when you turn on the cruise control and turns off when you disengage the cruise control system or turn off your Nissan.


Security

Security

This warning light appears when your Nissan's ignition is locked. When this appears, an alarm code is often required to be entered to unlock it.

Traction COntrol

Traction Control/ESP

This alert might activate if your new Nissan Sentra detects slippery road surfaces or icy conditions. The light indicates the traction control system is engaged.


Overdrive

Overdrive/Sport

If your new Nissan has a Sport mode, this light might come on.

Wipers

Wiper Fluid

If the level of wiper fluid in the reservoir dips below a certain amount, this light will alert you to maintain an adequate level of fluid in the reservoir to ensure you can always clean your windshield for optimal visibility.


Airbag

Airbag Warning

This warning light indicates an error is present in an essential safety system and should be diagnosed and resolved immediately.

Door Ajar

Door Ajar

This signal is often accompanied by an audible alert when one or more of the doors on your Nissan are open while the engine is running.


Headlights

Headlight/Taillight

This warning light will often appear if a bulb is burned out in a headlamp or taillamp.

ESP Fault

ESP Fault

If the electronic stability system or traction control is not functioning properly this warning light will appear on your car's dashboard.


Gas cap

Gas Cap

If the gas cap is not securely tightened, this light will appear. This light should turn off when you pull over and tighten the gas cap.

Tire Pressure

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

If one or more of the tires on your used Nissan truck falls below the tire manufacturer's recommended pressure level, a horseshoe-like indicator will appear on your car's dashboard. Adding air to the low tire will normally turn off the tire pressure warning light. If the light stays on after adding air to the tires, make an appointment with our tire service department.


Engine Oil Pressure

Engine Oil Pressure Warning Light

If the level of motor oil in your cars' engine falls below the required amount, the engine in your car will not maintain the correct oil pressure. If there is not enough oil to lubricate the moving metal parts in your engine, significant damage can occur. You should pull over immediately and turn the car off. When the car is safe to touch, you can check the oil level yourself. If the dipstick reads the required amount, then you have a failing sensor. At this point, either add oil as needed or have your vehicle towed to our Nissan service station.

Battery

Battery

This light will turn off after starting the car. If the light stays on, your battery is likely dead or nearing its expiration. At which point, you should drive to our Nissan service department for battery service.
