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 didn't realize that the opening time had changed from 6am. I waited until 7:45, otherwise, the day went along just fine. The oil change was quick and efficient. I have never had any problems with oil leaks after my numerous oil changes at Pohanka. Continue the good work and thanks for the great service

My overall experience was good.. my service person Marcus was very helpful and his trainee.. the only negative was a customer in the facility that did not have a mask on. He chose to keep walking around. I didn’t hear anyone address him. I was very uncomfortable..

My wife and I walked in today not to buy,but just test drive the later minivan. Lamin asked us a few questions regarding why we were there today. Due to exceptional service and attention to detail, long story short we traded in both of our BMWs for 2 Hondas! Steve is the manager and he was phenomenal. Needless to say we were well taken care of. Our rates were rock bottom, and we traded out of our older BMWs before maintenance issues arise and drove off with 2 brand new vehicles! Overall 10/10 experience!

After looking online and becoming discouraged briefly by a shady experience with a big dealership in VA, I was incredibly fortunate to have stopped by this dealership which is tucked away off of the Ritchie-Marlboro Exit 13 off of 495. I had the most excellent salesperson that I've ever encountered--Rose. She was knowledgeable, respectful, patient, and beyond encouraging. No pressure, no hassle, no tricks (no...seriously). Even in a pandemic, the selection was decent and the process was smooth from my tour of the lot all the way to checkout. I found an even better car than I was originally looking for and for the perfect price. If you're tired of sifting through so-called "hot deals" online like I was and you're past ready to bring home a new chariot for your royal family, you owe it to yourself to stop by this dealership. #realtalk

Best buying experience I have had. Purchased a used late model RAM. everything was negotiated up front (including trade) and there were zero surprises. Everything as promised. Best part came when I realized that the truck had no running boards. I had missed that in the pictures. When I mentioned that my wife has a bad back and that the running boards would be an issue, they called a local dodge dealer and agreed to pay for installation. Even called the dodge dealer to let them know I was coming. JT, Perlita, Jerod, and Judaea were all great. Could not be happier.

I had a good experience since the virus. I was treated well by Don, my service advisor, I was out pretty close to the estimated time. I was treated like a valuable customer. I have not driven my vehicle since I left the dealer but I try to keep up with my maintenance. I've been with Pohanka since 1990 and would definitely recommend Pohanka Honda. The car wash was broken and this was a little disappointing when I saw my vehicle but service and advisor were great. Thank you.
