When an engine light appears on your dashboard, the car computer is telling you something needs to be addressed. This “Check Engine Light” and other dashboard lights can come on for many different reasons − some urgent, others not so. A flashing light or a red light (rather than orange) is usually an indication of a more serious problem related to engine overheating, braking system problems or engine oil pressure.
Your car’s onboard computer diagnostic system (OBD) monitors your vehicle’s operations constantly and analyses the status of the exhaust system, fuel tank and transmission, detecting anything from a loose fuel cap to a clogged catalytic converter.
If your check engine light or any other dash board warning light is on, please contact us to discuss, or bring your car into our service centre and have one of our experienced technicians check it out.
