Why is Your Honda Check Engine Light On?find out what the best honda vehicles for families are

The most popular light that loves to flash in vehicles is that pesky Check Engine light. This one could mean one of several things, including:

-A misfire in the engine’s cylinders
-Emissions control system problem
-Loose Fuel Cap

If your check engine light does come on, the best thing to do would be to stop your vehicle and check if it is something as simple as a loose fuel cap. If it is not, then additional maintenance may be required.

    The Check Engine Light is on in my brand new 2017 Honda CRV at only 100 miles. The dealer can’t find a reason for it and says it is safe to drive. I’m very disappointed because I thought this was a reliable and well inspected car. What should I do?

    My wife’s 2016 Fit started displaying multiple dash lights at the same time. The ones that are displayed are the tire pressure light, the engine light, vehicle stability assist (vsa) light and the power steering light. If someone can help me out, I would be very grateful.

    • Cheri Lewis says:

      Did you ever get this problem diagnosed? I have a friend with the same exact lights on in her 2018 Honda Fit. Thanks for any help

  8. Alan says:

    I get a warning icon on my CRV dash just below the speedo which comprises a rectangle with thee circles in it (like bubbles?) with a run down battery below it. The battery is like a torch battery shape with one triangle at the end similar to what you get on a LED display. It does not appear in the manual or on any website which I have tried. What does it mean?

  14. Erwin White says:

    My Honda accord has a white indicator called “ key” and underneath the key is a flashing indicator. Can you tell me what this means? Looks like it might be a battery.

  15. Debbie says:

    My Honda CRV 2010 dashboard has a orange triangle w a exclamation mark in side the triangle while driving up a steep dirt hill. It went off when I got to the top of hill although I hardly had any power driving up the hill. Can anyone help identify what went wrong?

  16. Tiffany says:

    Does anyone know what the orange/yellow triangle light with TMPS in it, means? I have searched and searched but I can only find the TMPS warning light, which is a horseshoe shape with an exclamation mark in the middle… this is totally different, the shape is triangle and there is no exclamation mark. Thanks!

  17. Elizabeth Davis says:

    TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) The purpose of the TPMS is to alert you when tire pressure.

  18. Lauren says:

    All of my warning lights stay on and it keeps saying FCW failed. They thought it was my VCH module that needed replacing. That was $1760 and it didn’t fix the issue. Then they said some wire were loose so they tightened them. Still didn’t fix the issue. I also had to get my battery replaced for the 7th time, it was replaced in March. They say they can’t figure out what is going on…

  19. LaToya says:

    I was driving approximately 60mph when my dashboard flashed then everything shut off. I was able to pull off the next exit and turn the car off. After while I drove the city streets home slowly and parked in my driveway. Removed the keys but the Oil pressure light park light and check engine lights all stayed on and the hood will not open? I have no clue what’s going on.

    A symbol appears on my dashboard over the P , the symbol is a closed circle with the lowercase i inside the circle. I called the service dept. the person who I spoke to said that the symbol I have was not for me to worry about. But it has been a week and that symbol is still showing !! I am very concerned

  22. Tonia says:

    Why does ORANGE flashing light appear on the driver side dashboard when car is locked. This is separate from the anti-theft devices

  23. Matt says:

    2014 Odyssey. Yellow TPMS light (not the warning light that is shaped like a tire) on the lower left portion of the dash panel is on. What does it mean? it isn’t even listed on this or other websites. ( My guess is it is something along the lines that the car isn’t finding the sensors (had a new sensor put in yesterday). Any ideas?

  24. Clara says:

    I have a 2014 Honda Accord. Recently had a flat tire. Had tired fixed and the tire pressure indicator reset but there is a small icon of a car with shading on the right side of the car displayed on my audio info screen. What does this mean and how do I get rid of it.

  25. Linda says:

    I have a 2003 honda accord and no is flashing where my milage is…….Does any one know why?

  26. Leanne says:

    I have a symbol on my dashboard that has started appearing on my 2017 CRV dashboard which my owner’s manual and even my Honda service center cannot explain. It is a profile of three human heads, drawn in white appearing side by side horizontally. One has nothing in front of its mouth, the second head has what look like stylized sound waves coming from its mouth and the third head has a check mark in a little box on the lower left hand side of the head. All 3 heads appear on the dash at the simultaneously each time I start my vehicle and remain there the entire trip until the car is turned off. What do these mean?!! Help!!
    PS. I can’t believe that my owners manual and local Honda service center can’t tell me what they mean and if I should be concerned or not! I mean sheesh!!!
