How Serious is a Dashboard Warning Light?

Honda’s dashboard warning lights are categorized into two groups, critical or general information. A general information warning light will be green or blue and is simply an alert that a system is on or off. A critical warning light will be red or amber colored and requires immediate attention. Critical warning lights are then categorized into either a malfunction indicator or a condition indicator.

    I have a 2014 Accord EX coupe. I get a chime after starting a low battery image with the word “key” above it. My car is push button start. Is this warning talking about a low battery on my key fob?
