The Check Engine light may not always be your favorite thing to see, but it is an important sign that your engine, exhaust system, or battery may be having trouble. It may require a little assistance for you to figure it out as it is part of your OBD System. Modern vehicles are equipped with an ODB system, which monitors your vehicle’s emissions system and triggers the Check Engine light if it detects a number of issues, from a faulty oxygen sensor to a failed engine component.
At Collegeway Auto, we have the experience and technology to help you figure out what is going on with your check engine light. We can perform a number of tests to diagnose the issue and get you back on the road as soon as possible. Contact us today to schedule a check engine light diagnostic service!
What To Do If You See The Check Engine Light
If you see your check engine light, the first step is not to panic. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap. If the light is flashing, that means it’s a more serious issue and you should take your car to a mechanic right away.
If the light is on but not flashing, you can check your owner’s manual to see what the problem might be. Often, it will tell you what code was triggered by the OBD system. You can also take your car to Collegeway Auto and we can check the code for you. Once you know what code was triggered, we’ll look up what that particular code means and will be able to give you a better idea of what the problem might be and what solution will be best for you.
