Multiple warning lights

While driving my 14 accord down the highway today, my tire air pressure light, engine, power steering and traction control lights came on at the same time. The car seemed to be driving fine, but I noticed the air conditioner wasn't working very well. I plan to take it over to Honda tommorrow, but thought I'd check to see if anyone might know what could have caused this. I checked the air pressure on the tires and they were all fine. Makes me think it's a computer issue.

That is fairly strange for it to be having battery issues already though considering it is a 2014.

If the OP has a 4 cyl., 51R battery (same as they put in civic's) that is about the life extent of them. If the battery required adding water to the cells, offen overlooked as people think the term "maintenance free" means NO maintenance required.

3~4 years is the reliable lifespan of a car battery, and typically car battery warranties will expire at the 2 or 3-year mark. After 4 years, you can keep going with them, but don't be surprised if it dies on you one morning. Happened to me when I first got my car. The old battery was from 2012, and it just randomly died one morning(I didn't leave anything turned on), and I got a new battery soon after. My new one has a 3-year warranty.

For the maintenance free batteries, I am not sure how you would add distilled(not tap water) water in them. I think some of them still have lids you can take off, but I am not sure.

Some have removable caps over the cells & some don't.

As far as I can tell, the ones I had/have don't have lids.

The only possible exception might be the one on my RX-8 now - it says it's maintenance free but has those little dial-like things on the top that might be lids, but I haven't figured out if those can be taken off. The battery is also semi-transparent and has two lines on the side that are marked H and L like a coolant reservoir, which imply that you can add water into it. It looks like it's in the car for a while, so I am still debating if I need a new one or see if I need to add water into it.

Does it look like this? They are removable.

Yep, the one in my RX-8 has that. I tried to untighten them but they are so tight. They might have seized. I will probably take the battery out, clean it up, and take a better look at it.

The one in my Accord doesn't have any lids, by contrast.
