In 1996, an orange light on your car’s dashboard labeled “Check Engine” or “Service Engine” soon became standard on all car makes and models. The light tells you there’s a problem with your car’s engine and power train control system.
Why Do I Need This Service?
An illuminated “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light indicates a problem detected by our car’s onboard diagnostic system(OBD). The light cannot indicate the exact nature of the problem-only the right training and diagnostic can do that.
What is a Typical Service?
- A flashing light indicates a problem that is currently happening and may require immediate attention, whereas a steady light can be diagnosed at the first convenient opportunity.
- A technician connects a “scan tool” to your car’s onboard diagnostic system to determine the problem.
- Further testing and diagnostics may be required to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.
- Once the problem is pinpointed, repairs are made and the light is reset.
