Nissan Micra Owners Manual

Anti-lock Braking System
(ABS) warning light

When the ignition switch is placed in the ON position, the ABS warning light illuminates and then turns off. This indicates the ABS is operational.

If the ABS warning light illuminates while the engine is running, or while driving, it may indicate the ABS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked by a NISSAN dealer.

If an ABS malfunction occurs, the anti-lock function is turned off. The brake system then operates normally, but without anti-lock assistance. For additional information, refer to Brake system in the Starting and driving section.

Brake warning light


This light functions for both the parking brake and the foot brake systems.

Parking brake indicator

When the ignition switch is placed in the ON position, the light comes on when the parking brake is applied.

Low brake fluid warning light

When the ignition switch is placed in the ON position, the light warns of a low brake fluid level.

If the light comes on while the engine is running with the parking brake not applied, stop the vehicle and perform the following:

  1. Check the brake fluid level. Add brake fluid as necessary. For additional information, refer to “Brake fluid” in the “Maintenance and do-it-yourself” section of this manual.
  2. If the brake fluid level is correct, have the warning system checked by a NISSAN dealer.

light

CAUTION Running the engine with the engine oil pressure warning light on could cause serious damage to the engine almost immediately.

Such damage is not covered by warranty. Turn off the engine as soon as it is safe to do so.

High temperature warning
light (red)

When the ignition switch is placed in the ON position, the high temperature warning light illuminates and then turns off. This indicates that the high temperature sensor in the engine coolant system is operational.

If the vehicle is overheated, continuing vehicle operation may seriously damage the engine. For additional information, refer to “If your vehicle overheats” in the “In case of emergency” section of this manual.

  • When the power steering warning light illuminates with the engine running, there will be no power assist for the steering. You will still have control of the vehicle but the steering will be harder to operate. Have the power steering system checked by a NISSAN dealer.

When the ignition switch is placed in the ON position, the power steering warning light illuminates.

After starting the engine, the power steering warning light turns off. This indicates the power steering system is operational.

Supplemental air bag warning
light

When the ignition switch is placed in the ON or START position, the supplemental air bag warning light illuminates for about 7 seconds and then turns off if the SRS air bag systems are operational.

  • The supplemental air bag warning light remains on after approximately 7 seconds.
  • The supplemental air bag warning light flashes intermittently.

WARNING If the supplemental air bag warning light is on, it could mean that the supplemental front air bag and/or pretensioner systems will not operate in an accident. To help avoid injury to yourself or others, have your vehicle checked by a NISSAN dealer as soon as possible.
