If you own a Nissan Altima, you may have seen the exclamation point triangle warning light on your dashboard. What is this all about?

Before anything else, all master warning lights should be paid attention to. A master warning light may signify either a loose fuel cap, an open door or trunk, low fuel or windshield wiper fluid, improper tire pressure, no key detected, or the parking brake is engaged. In this case, look for that specific problem that is causing the warning light to light up. 

If the exclamation point triangle light is on, make sure to check the key for any other warning icons present. Check whether your doors and trunk are closed, whether your fuel cap is loose, whether your windshield wiper fluid is low, and so on. However, if this happens frequently, or if the warning light does not turn off even if you have already checked possible culprits, bring your vehicle to Continental Nissan's service center and we'll determine what’s going on. 

You can also bring your car to our service center for your regular maintenance needs. Visit us soon!
