Dashboard Warning Light Guide near Fredericksburg, VA

Dashboard Warning Light Guide near Fredericksburg, VA

Although they’re directly in front of the steering wheel, the meaning behind many dashboard warning lights remains elusive for the majority of people. To help keep you informed of what to look out for, we at Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights have put together this overview. That way, the next time a light turns on in the dash, you’ll know what to do!

Things to Look Out For

When you get your car started in the morning, you’ll want to do a quick scan of the dashboard to make sure everything is good to go. The first thing to look out for is the Seat Belt Reminder light, which looks like a person strapped into their seat. If you see this lit up, check to make sure your seat belt is properly secured. From there, if you see an image of a vehicle with its door open, check to make sure all the entrances are tightly closed. One light that many individuals fail to notice has to do with the Parking Brake. When this is on, you’ll want to release the brake before hitting the road.

Safety

These days, Honda vehicles are equipped with several advanced safety systems, some of which have a corresponding dashboard light. We’ll start with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This feature constantly checks to make sure your tires are at the right inflation levels. If it notices a discrepancy, you’ll see a yellow light in the shape of a wheel with an exclamation mark in the center. From there, if you see a gas pump, that’s your Honda letting you know you’re almost out of fuel. Other than that, the other safety system lights will tell you when something is amiss. You can check your owner’s manual or contact our team if you have any questions.

Maintenance Light

Of course, many of the dashboard warning lights are there to tell you when it’s time to consider going to a Service Department. As an example, you might see a yellow wrench or an engine if the mechanics of your ride need a bit of attention. You may also see a windshield, which indicates that you’re low on washer fluid. From there, if you notice an oil can with a drop of fluid in front of the steering wheel, it means you have low oil pressure. One thing you certainly don’t want to mess around with is a red battery light, as this is your vehicle telling you that there’s not enough charge left. You’ll want to have our team in the Service Department take a look right away, or you’ll risk being stranded when you least expect.

Hopefully, this dashboard warning light guide near Fredericksburg, VA, has made you more confident. If you have any specific inquiries, feel free to get a hold of us here at Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights by dialing 301-899-7800.

I came in one afternoon and it was semi-busy. Service Advisor, Don Curtis stated he can help with whatever service I needed and that is what he did. I needed a routine service and of course he came back stating I needed extra service, which would increase the price. He explained fully and was patient answering all my questions. By the end of our conversation I had no issues spending the extra money to get the complete service my vehicle needed. Don was professional, personable, and knowledgeable. But most importantly, he was efficient. I was in & out within an hour with a car wash. I was happy at the end of the day and will only bring my vehicle to this location hence forth. Great establishment, clean, and nice waiting area. I recommend giving this place an opportunity to service your vehicle.

This was hands down the best car buying experience I’ve had in my life. Jasmine was fantastic as our sales person. Sam was the manager we worked with and he was amazing. I forget the name of the lady in the business office, but she was so kind and helpful! Literally the best deal we could have ever gotten and we were in the dealership less than 2 hours from start to finish. We love our new Odyssey! Absolutely recommend buying your next car from them! We had visited several other dealerships and found a lot of pressure and typical sales tactics at those places. We didn’t experience any of that here! They were honest and helpful every step of the way!

Marc was our sales rep and everything went smooth. He wasn't a fast talker he was upfront and I made sure to leave some meat on the bone for him to feed his family.

My car had a significant issue that needed repair. Chris Kovach in the Service Department did a fantastic job taking care of me, ensuring that the problem was identified and corrected, even had me talk with the technician so I understood the problem and the corrective action needed. I'd like to commend Chris for his customer service attitude and tenacity in getting my car's issues fixed!

Great customer service as usual. I purchased my car at Pohanka Honda, Capital Heights, MD and it is my only service/maintenance location. My Advisor on January 5, 2020 was George Williams (804). Mr. Williams was very professional and courteous.

My wife and I recently purchased our second new Odyssey from Pohanka (2020 and 2015 models). All of the people that we encountered were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were quite pleased with Pohanka service on our 2015 Odyssey, and intend to continue with our 2020 EXL.

Brian and Noah did a great job getting my fiancé and I the car that we wanted. For buying a car on a busy Saturday, it was a relatively quick and painless process. We drove off the lot with plates and a full tank of gas :) Very friendly and knowledgeable guys.

Wow!!!!! I've been to many car dealerships but POHANKA put them all to shame. The team we worked with never made us feel intimidated or pressured for one minute. The level of hospitality was awesome. We were offered freshly brewed coffee and water. The Rep we had was so young he looked like he just got out of high school. We were his first customer/encounter. I will be buying my next car from Pohanka!!!!
