Over the course of your drive, you probably find your gaze meeting your dashboard quite often. Positioned naturally in view, car makers strategically design the dashboard to get your attention. When this blank canvas lights up like a Christmas tree, the natural reaction is to panic. But, not all dashboard lights mean there’s a problem under the hood.
At Nissan 24, we strive to help our local drivers in Brockton, Randolph and Stoughton stay safe on the road and enjoy their Nissan travels to the fullest. Because we know the undue stress that can take over when an unfamiliar light comes into view, we set out to spread valuable knowledge around the topic.
By reading the dashboard light guide for your Nissan model, you can quickly learn how to recognize which lights require immediate action and which ones are more or less bearers of good news and normal function.
