The brake light is an exclamation point, inside of a circle, inside of parentheses. If you see this pop up on the dashboard of your Lexus RX 450H, it means your brakes are malfunctioning. While they may still work for a period of time, it’s important to have your brakes inspected by a professional in this scenario.
Temperature Warning Light
This light is referred to as either the coolant light, or the temperature warning light. It looks like a floating signpost with three notches pointing to the right.
If this pops up, it means your engine is close to overheating. Once this scenario occurs, safely pull off to the side of the road, and let your engine cool off for a brief period.
Oil Pressure Engine Light
The oil pressure engine light looks like a leaking oil can, and it is designed to warn you that your engine oil is running low. If you see this light pop up, you’ll need to get an oil change.
The charging system indicator, or battery light, will appear if your car’s battery is malfunctioning or beginning to wear down.
In this scenario, you’ll want to have a professional take a look at your battery, as it may need to be replaced. The picture for this symbol looks like a small battery with a plus sign in one corner, and a minus sign in the other corner.
Transmission Oil Temperature
There’s oil in your engine, and there’s also oil in your transmission. If you see the transmission oil temperature light come on, you’ll want to get your transmission checked. This symbol is simply the words “AT OIL TEMP”
Power steering allows you to effortlessly turn the wheel in either direction. If your power steering light turns on, which looks like a steering wheel next to an exclamation point, it means your power steering is malfunctioning.
It’s important to get this checked shortly after the light pops up.
The check engine light looks like a small engine with the words “check engine” on it. If you see this symbol appear, it could mean many different things. Either way, you should have a mechanic look at your Lexus RX 450h.
