Lexus NX 300h Dashboard Symbols
The 2018 Lexus NX 300h is a hybrid SUV with comfortable seating, strong performance, and outstanding fuel economy numbers. It’s truly a great vehicle.
While driving, you may notice dashboard lights that turn on. These lights are typically trying to let you know of something important that may require action. In this guide, we’ll discuss some of the important dashboard symbols that might turn on while driving through White Plains, Yonkers, and Scarsdale.
Tire Pressure Warning Light
If a yellow light with an exclamation point surrounded by parentheses has turned on, it’s the tire pressure warning light. As long as the light is solid, it means pressure in at least one tire is low. Adjust the pressure as needed. The owner’s manual will let you know what the proper pressure should be.
If you’ve added air and the light remains on, it might be time to bring the 2018 NX 300h to your local Lexus dealership. There may be a leak or debris stuck in the tire, causing it to lose air.
Brake Warning Light
This is a red light, which can signify an issue with the brake system. It could be low brake fluid, or the brake system itself could be malfunctioning. If the light turns on suddenly and is accompanied by a chime or buzzing sound, pull over as soon as possible and contact Lexus roadside assistance.
Before any trip begins, make sure the parking brake is deactivated, as this light can turn on if you attempt to drive with the parking brake on.
Master Warning Light
This light is designed to grab your attention and ensure you’re paying attention. The purpose of this light is to draw your attention to the dashboard area. The master warning light can flash, remain solid, and/or be joined by a buzzing sound. Check the message being shown and the recommended next steps.
Check Engine Light
This is one of the most common lights inside the 2018 Lexus NX 300h, or any vehicle for that matter. It’s also known in the owner’s manual as the malfunction indicator lamp. If the light is flashing, the engine might be misfiring, which can end up causing damage over time.
If the light is solid, it’s essentially a word of caution, and could be an issue with something in the electronic system or even a loose gas cap. Should the light turn on and remain on in subsequent trips, it’ll be time to visit a Lexus service center.
Oil Pressure Warning Light
Shaped like an oil can, this light will indicate when oil pressure in the engine is low. Follow the message’s instructions, which may tell you to pull over and call a Lexus dealership before driving any further.
