Lexus UX 200 Dashboard Symbols
The all-new 2019 Lexus UX 200 is a uniquely designed compact crossover, the first such offering from the Lexus family. With its powerful performance, well-appointed interior, and sleek appearance, this is a car that catches the eye.
While traveling throughout White Plains, Yonkers, and Scarsdale, you may notice dashboard symbols turn on while driving. The basic ones, like your lights and turn signals, are self-explanatory. However, Lexus of White Plains has put together this guide to discuss some of the important dashboard symbols you may see, and how to react when they turn on.
Tire Pressure Light
When the tires are properly filled, it ensures you’re able to get the best possible fuel economy out of the Lexus UX 200. If pressure in at least one of the tires is low, this light will be on. It’s a good idea to check the pressure in all four tires at least once a month, adding air as needed.
Keep the owner’s manual close by to reference what the proper tire pressure should be. This information can also be found inside the driver’s side door jamb. If the tire pressure light begins to blink, that can signify an issue with the monitoring system.
Check Engine Light
See this symbol shaped like an engine, and that means it’s time to take notice. The check engine light could be describing a possible engine issue, but it could also be something more minor, like an emissions-related concern or loose gas cap.
If the light begins to flash, bring the UX 200 to our service center as soon as you can. If the light is solid and remains on the next time you turn on the car, schedule a service appointment with our technicians.
This has also been described as the temperature warning light. When the engine is running hot, this light will be on. Engine coolant levels should be looked at as soon as possible. The symbol looks like a thermometer, so when you see it turn on, pay close attention to what it’s trying to tell you.
After you’ve turned the car off and let it cool down for a few minutes, check out the coolant levels to see if they are where they should be. Coolant can be added easily if needed. If the light remains on, there may be a leak.
The emergency brake may be activated, so be sure it’s released before starting your drive. If the light is on at any other time, that can mean there’s an issue with the vehicle’s brake system. This is an issue that should be checked out by Lexus service technicians as soon as possible.
