What do your Nissan’s warning lights mean?

While you’re driving, you may notice that one of the lights on your dashboard has become illuminated. Your first thought may be to panic, but there’s no need to: Not every light is an immediate concern. Some lights are meant to warn you prior to any danger, while others are simple reminders. Keep reading to find out more.

Here are some general tips for interpreting Nissan’s warning lights:

  • Green lights: Usually indicate a system is working normally or currently in use.
  • Yellow lights: May represent a minor issue that requires attention but doesn’t necessarily mean you need to stop driving immediately.
  • Red lights: Indicate a serious issue that could potentially damage your car or put you at risk. Pull over safely as soon as possible and consult your owner’s manual or a mechanic.
  • Master warning light: Nissan has a master warning light that can be triggered by various issues, both minor and major. It’s often accompanied by a message on the dashboard that explains the problem.
