Tire Pressure Warning
When this dashboard light turns on, it’s time to take a look at the tires. The light itself looks like an exclamation point with tire treads around it. Tire pressure could be low in at least one tire, but it’s always a good idea to check all four.
Look at the owner’s manual to see the recommended tire pressure for the Lexus RX 350. This info can also be found inside the driver’s side door jamb. If the light is blinking, bring your car to our service professionals, as this might be describing an issue with the actual tire pressure monitoring system.
Shaped like an engine, this light can really mean just about anything, but you should always take it seriously. If the light is flashing, there may be a serious engine concern. If the light is solid, it could be an emissions-related concern, or even something as simple as a loose gas cap.
If the dashboard light remains on the next few times you turn the car on, it’s a good idea to visit our service center.
The brake light, when it turns on in all caps and says “BRAKE,” could be telling you that brake fluid is low. Low brake fluid can cause the vehicle to slide and glide on the road in certain weather conditions. It’s also possible the brake system itself might be malfunctioning.
If the dashboard light comes on and is joined by a buzzing sound, pull over as soon as possible and shut the engine off. Call our service center for your next steps after doing so.
If your Lexus RX 350 is low on fuel, this indicator light will turn on to let you know that’s the case. Once you’ve received this reminder to refill your tank, get to the pump as soon as possible. The light indicates you have about two gallons of gas remaining.
