Understanding Your Mazda Dashboard Lights

As you drive, you'll likely glance down at your dash to check your speed, see your fuel level, or look for blind-spot information. Occasionally though, you'll find a light that indicates your Mazda needs attention.

Maxon Mazda is always here to help with expert Mazda service, so don't ignore that dashboard light; visit us and give your Mazda the service it needs today!

Low Oil Pressure

This light is perhaps the most critical of all the dashboard lights. If you see this light it is time to pull over and have your vehicle brought to our Mazda Service Center in Union, NJ as soon as possible. A low oil pressure light means your engine is not getting the lubrication it needs and could incur serious damage if left unchecked.

Check Engine Light

While this light is less critical, it is still important to schedule your next Mazda service appointment if this light comes on. Since it could be anything from an oxygen sensor to a coolant issue or fuel problem, ignoring this light could spell trouble in the long run.

Low Tire Pressure

Cold temperatures can sometimes trigger your low tire pressure light, and if you have the confidence, you can refill the tires at nearly any gas station. However, if you see this light more than once within a few weeks, that may indicate that you have a tire that needs attention.

Temperature Gauge

When you first get your Mazda, you should keep an eye on the temperature gauge to understand where it typically rests during normal driving, stop & go traffic, and highway driving. While slight deviations are normal, an engine running at higher than normal temperatures can indicate an issue that needs immediate attention, even with no other warning lights present.
