It can be stressful and frustrating when a warning light illuminates on your Honda’s dashboard and you don’t know what it means. Our team at Matt Castrucci Honda never wants you to feel overwhelmed, so we’re filling you in on what Honda’s dashboard warning lights look like and what they mean.
Honda dashboard warning light symbols and meanings
Honda has a variety of dashboard warning lights that will illuminate from time to time, but there is somewhat of a trick to understanding them. Red or amber lights are the most critical and indicate that there may be a problem with the vehicle. Blue or green lights are informational for the driver and are designed to let the driver know that a system, such as cruise control, is on or running.

Malfunction indicators are typically red or amber in color and should be taken seriously. If one of these lights comes on and stays on, your vehicle may be in need of some attention. We recommend bringing it into an authorized Honda dealer.
