Dashboard Light Issues by kaze4blues(m): 8:28pm On Jun 12, 2020
I got the below light when car is in parked position but with my leg still in the brake.

The red light beside the seat belt light.

Kindly advise on what it means.

Thank you.

The picture is blurry but looks like your EPS indicator. Is your car EPS active?

EPS simply indicates Electronic power steering?

If you don't mind, what's your car Brand, model and year, so I can know if it's EPS enabled.

And is your steering in any way hard to steer?
Re: Dashboard Light Issues by kaze4blues(m): 8:45pm On Jun 12, 2020
Honda accord 2006. Discussion continue.

Steering is not hard
Re: Dashboard Light Issues by DriveTrademark: 8:53pm On Jun 12, 2020
Ok, in my experience EPS indicator is not a major issue at all. Not saying this to patronize you. You can however ask your mechanic to do the check himself or you can run an OBD scan on the car to detect electrical issues which will inevitably bring out EPS issues.

So long as your steering is not hard, there's nothing to worry about Sir. You can also ask other experts for their insight after dropping a clearer image though.

Thanks for the clearer image.

It's the brake system sir, it means either your emergency parking brake system is on, you can check that yourself sir or you have issues with your brake system which you need to check to avoid brake failure while on the road.

It may also be your brake pads or discs are faulty and needs replacement. Kindly reach out to your mechanic.

PS: The above explanation I gave on EPS is when a red "EPS" sign shows on the dashboard. Kindly ignore that. The image is clearer now.

Also note that if you're ignition was on when you took those pictures then there's nothing to worry about cos those lights are supposed to come on on ignition

Thank you very much for the clarification.

My ignition was truly on when I took the picture.

I'm a new car owner that's why it caught my attention.

What of the recommended brake oil?

By complete drain, you mean whatever is inside must first be drained off before the new one is introduced.

Kindly assist with the contact for luvinghubby
