If you get a check engine light, we always recommend contacting us immediately so that we can diagnose whether you have a serious problem or not with your new or used Honda.

Charging System Indicator

Low Oil Pressure Indicator



If it comes on and stays on, the engine has low oil pressure. This can cause severe damage; turn the engine off as soon as safely possible, and refer to the owner's manual for more information. If the indicator flashes, there is a momentary loss in oil pressure, which indicates engine oil level may be low. Turn the engine off as soon as safely possible, and check the oil level. Refer to the owner's manual for more information.
