If you’re driving around Akron in a Nissan Altima or other Nissan model, you will probably wonder one day, “What do my Nissan dashboard warning lights mean?” Each warning light on your dashboard has a distinct meaning, and it’s crucial to your vehicle’s longevity to know their meaning, so you know what to do next. The auto experts at Fred Martin Nissan explain here what the colors and symbols of your Nissan Altima warning lights mean. Take a closer look at the meaning of the various Nissan Altima warning lights below, and schedule service accordingly.



What Do the Nissan Dashboard Warning Light Colors Mean?

Are your Nissan Altima dashboard lights flashing yellow or red? The warning light colors indicate the severity of your Nissan’s mechanical issues. Whether you’ve got a pre-owned Nissan Altima or a new Nissan Rogue, rest assured that the color codes and meanings are the same across all Nissan models at Fred Martin Nissan near Canton.

If your warning light is yellow, this is a sign of a malfunction, but it may not be urgent. You can likely still drive your vehicle, but scheduling a service appointment as soon as possible is a good idea. If your Nissan dashboard warning lights up red, you need to have service performed immediately. Pull to the side of the Medina road, and don’t drive your vehicle any further if it lights up in red! Instead, have it towed to the Fred Martin Nissan service center for repair.
