The Ford Escape is an advanced piece of machinery and has quite a few service and maintenance requirements to ensure that it stays running in top form. Because of this, the vehicle is equipped with an advanced system that will inform you when it's time to have your vehicle checked by the Ford service professionals at your local service center near Richmond, Ashland, and Mechanicsville. 

Check out our Ford Escape dashboard light guide below and then schedule a quick appointment if necessary at Richmond Ford Lincoln to ensure that your Ford Escape runs smoothly for years to come.

Ford Escape Intelligent Oil Life Monitor

The Ford Escape is equipped with advanced technology called the Intelligent Oil Life Monitor. This system determines when your vehicle needs an oil change, removing the guesswork of the timeline for your next oil change. This system not only saves you money by letting you get the full use of the oil you've already purchased, but it also ensures that if you're a more severe driver that you get the oil changed as often as your vehicle needs it.

Low Tire Pressure Warning Light

This light will illuminate if one or more of your tires is underinflated. If you've been getting your Ford Escape regularly maintained at Richmond Ford Lincoln, we check the tire pressure during your regular service appointment. So take a close look at the tires and make sure that there aren't any abrasions, cracks, or nails in the tire. If the tire looks good, simply reinflate. But if the problem reoccurs, have your tires inspected at your local Ford service center.

Service Engine Soon

This light illuminates to let you know that the engine in your Escape needs to be serviced. This light indicates that the On-Board Diagnostics system has detected a vehicle emissions control system malfunction. To ensure proper emissions control, get your vehicle serviced as soon as possible.

Anti-Lock Braking System

If this light illuminates while you're driving, there's a malfunction with the anti-lock feature of your  Escape's braking system. This means that you'll still have normal braking function, but you won't have the anti-lock brakes. Be sure to get the vehicle serviced at your local Ford service center as soon as possible to ensure proper braking function.
