Do you drive a Nissan Sentra? Do you try to be as prepared as possible for anything that might occur while you’re making your way through North Grafton, Westborough, or Northborough, Massachusetts? Route 9 Nissan wants to help!
Our team of experts has put together this brief guide to the Nissan Sentra’s dashboard lights. We want to make sure that you’re aware of what the various symbols you have in front of you mean. As a result, you will have a better idea of what needs to be done when they turn on.
The Malfunction Indicator Light is there to make you aware of a few different things. First, it could be that there’s an issue with the emission control. It could also be that the fuel-filler cap is not on tight enough or that it is missing entirely. You will also see this light when the engine has run out of fuel.
The Malfunction Indicator Light is easy to spot, due to the fact that it resembles a car engine. If the light stays on after checking the fuel-filler cap and ensuring that there are at least three gallons of fuel in the tank, take your Sentra to a service center right away.
The engine oil pressure warning light looks like an oil can with a drop trickling out of the tip of the spout. Try to find a safe spot to pull over and call for help as soon as you notice that it’s on or is flashing.
When you see a symbol that is similar to a common car battery, you’ll know that this is the charge warning light trying to get your attention. Pull your Nissan Sentra over as soon as it’s safe to do so, turn the engine off, and check the generator belt to make sure that it’s not loose, broken, or missing altogether. If the belt looks fine, it could be that the charging system is malfunctioning.
The Nissan Sentra is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. With its help, you’re able to keep track of the amount of air inside each of your car's tires. This system uses the symbol of a partially deflated tire along with an exclamation point to alert you that one of the tires is running low. As a result, you can ensure that you’re getting a safe performance from each one.
