Well, you haven’t given me much to go on, but I’m Going to guess that you are seeing a Check Engine Light or some other warning light on your dashboard. When these lights come on it means the cars computers have detected a fault and have logged a trouble code to help a technician determine the problem. If you have a warning light on your dashboard, contact YourMechanic to have a technician come out to your home or office to check out your Honda and let you know if there is a problem.
