Genesis Dashboard Warning Lights Explained

Warning lights can be unsettling, especially when their meaning isn't clear. To help you understand your Genesis vehicle's warning lights, our Alexandria service center has broken some of them down.

What Do These Genesis Warning Lights Mean?

Electronic Power Steering (EPS)

This sign illuminates when there is a malfunction with your Genesis vehicle's EPS system. To identify the precise issue, you should have your vehicle inspected by a certified Genesis technician.

Low Tire Pressure Warning

When one or more of your tires are significantly underinflated, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) illuminates to let you know. The LCD will tell you which tire, or tires, are cause for concern. If the light is blinking, there is an issue with the TPMS, which calls for an inspection from an authorized Genesis technician.

Whether one of your tires needs a simple patch or you need a new set, our Genesis service center in Alexandria has you covered with full tire service. Schedule service with us today.

All Wheel Drive (AWD)

If you're Genesis is equipped with AWD, a malfunction will be indicated by the corresponding warning light. To determine the specific issue, have your vehicle looked at by a trusted Genesis technician.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)

If you turned off your FCA system, there is no reason for concern - the light is on to remind you that it's off. 

However, if this symbol illuminates and the system is turned on, there is a malfunction with your FCA system. The issue could be as simple as an obstruction to the front radar, like dirt or snow. In this case, cleaning the radar with a soft cloth will get the system working again. If the radar is clean and the light persists, have your vehicle checked out by a Genesis service professional. 

For your convenience, you can schedule a complimentary Genesis Service Valet with our Alexandria service center next time your vehicle requires maintenance. We'll pick up your vehicle and offer you a Genesis loaner while your vehicle is serviced.
