Lexus RX 350L Dashboard Symbols
The roads of White Plains, Yonkers and Scarsdale are fun to drive, even more fun when behind the wheel of a 2018 Lexus RX 350L. When driving, you may see a light come on in the dashboard of your RX 350L, and wonder, “What does that dashboard light mean?”
Our service professionals are well-versed in those Lexus dashboard symbols. If you’re looking for a convenient explanation of what some of those lights on the dashboard are trying to say, continue reading this dashboard symbols guide from the service team at Lexus of White Plains.
Tire Pressure Warning Light
This light, when it comes on, looks like an exclamation point surrounded by parentheses. If this light has turned on, check the tires for low pressure.
The tire pressure should be adjusted to the level recommended in the owner’s manual. This information can also be found inside the driver’s side door jamb. If the light is blinking for 30-60 seconds, bring your vehicle to our service center, because this may indicate an issue with the tire pressure monitoring system.
Check Engine Light
The check engine light in your Lexus RX 350L could mean just about anything, but it’s meant to be taken seriously. If the light is flashing, it could signify there’s a serious engine concern, which could be causing damage. If the light is solid, it might mean anything from an electrical issue to a loose gas cap. (Yes, it could be that simple.)
Should the light remain on in subsequent drives, it’s best to have the issue looked at as soon as possible.
Brake System Light
This light, in all capital letters, says “BRAKE.” Easy enough. But if this light comes on, it could mean brake fluid is low, which could cause the car to skid or slide in certain weather conditions. Or, the brake system may be malfunctioning.
If the light turns on and is accompanied by a buzzing sound, pull over in a safe spot as soon as you can, and turn the vehicle off. Contact our service center for more information after doing so.
ABS Warning Light
If the letters “ABS” turn on in the dashboard, this brake assist system may have been deactivated. This can make it tougher to stop the car if braking from higher speeds. You can continue driving, but use caution and brake earlier than usual.
If the light is still on the next time the car is turned on, bring your vehicle to our maintenance experts for a look. We’ll ensure the brakes are working as they should.
