Handling The Warning Light

If the check engine light illuminates in your vehicle, it’s important that you understand what to do. Pay attention to how it’s lighted — is it blinking or steady? Although you’ll need to visit our shop regardless of how it’s lighted, a blinking light indicates a major problem and you’ll need to visit our shop immediately. If the light is steady, that means a minor problem is occurring in your vehicle. Before scheduling service with us, check your vehicle’s gas cap, as a loose gas cap is a common trigger for the check engine light. After tightening or replacing the gas cap, drive your vehicle a few miles and see if the vehicle’s computer system recognizes your adjustment. If the light shuts off, great! You’re good to go. If not, then schedule a diagnostic service, as something else is wrong with your vehicle.
