A common dashboard warning light is the check engine light. This light comes on when the computer in your new Acura detects a system error. This can be triggered by something as basic as a failing to screw on the gas cap all the way after filling up or could indicate a more significant issue. When you bring your vehicle in for service, our team will diagnose and reset the check engine warning light.
We all know the importance of regular oil changes. This is because the motor oil in your car's engine serves many important functions. From lubricating moving metal parts to dissipating heat, motor oil is essential but loses effectiveness if oil pressure drops. If there is an oil leak or your car's engine is burning oil in the head gasket, correct oil levels won't be maintained. In these instances, a low oil pressure warning light will illuminate on the dashboard of your vehicle.
If a low oil pressure warning light has come on in your car, we suggest calling our service department immediately for oil service. When your car's engine is cool, and you're parked in a safe location, check the engine's dipstick to see if the oil level is, in fact, low or if it's a defective sensor. If the oil level is correct, then the car is safe to drive. If the oil level is low, you might want to have your vehicle towed to our service department to prevent damage to your vehicle.
