Vehicles today are equipped with an onboard computer diagnostic system that constantly monitors your vehicle’s major operating systems, specifically the engine and transmission. The primary purpose of monitoring these systems is to ensure that the vehicle is operating at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. The Check Engine Light will alert you when it registers anomalies in the normal operating ranges.
Sometimes the Check Engine Light will come on to notify you of something simply like a faulty gas cap. However in some situations it is alerting you to serious issues under the hood of your car. Ignoring your check engine light could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs down the line. When the dashboard starts blinking, call for an appointment to diagnose the source and have it addressed by a mechanic as soon as possible.
Once the Check Engine Light comes on, rely on our trained technicians to identify the cause and resolve it. It is important to have your vehicle seen by a trained professional when the check engine light is on, as repair may be necessary.
