Keeping the vehicle operating at top performance levels is important. This will help the vehicle to improve the reliability and efficiency of it. When a light comes on, by noticing which one it is, you can help to determine what the issue might be. If the light starts to blink, make sure that you pull over when it is safe to do so and turn the vehicle off. When the warning light is blinking, do not ignore it. Ignoring it can increase the chance of further damage and issues occurring for your vehicle. This can also result in a higher repair bill as well when the vehicle is repaired.
If the check engine light comes on for the vehicle, it could mean one of many things. Sometimes it deals with the engine, while other times it could be something as simple as emissions or problems with the gas cap. No matter what the issue might be, make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. We can test the diagnostic code to see where the specific source of the issue is for the vehicle. This can help it to be repaired quickly as well.
Other Dashboard Lights
You may notice the coolant temperature warning light illuminating on the dashboard. The main cause of this is based on the engine and vehicle overheating. This light will indicate that the temperature is above the normal limit that it needs to be. You will want to check the coolant level to ensure it has enough. The radiator cap should also be inspected so you can confirm that it is securely on and tightened. If the light illuminates, it could also mean that there are coolant leaks for the system that will need to be repaired as soon as possible.
