Is Your Engine Light On?
Modern vehicles come equipped with on-board technology, from OBDII engine management to tyre pressure monitoring. Most of these systems are self-diagnosing and can test and monitor our vehicle faults or problems. Once a fault is detected, you may be alerted to the problem through a dash-mounted warning light. A 'check engine' light means a problem has been detected with the engine's management system, failed a self-check and set a fault code. There are literally hundreds of codes that serve as causes for the 'check engine' light to turn on. The check engine light will illuminate and stay on for most faults. This means the driver should have the vehicle looked at as soon as possible. If the check engine light is flashing, it is an indication of a more serious issue and you should pull over and turn the vehicle off immediately to prevent emission system damage. At Hitech Auto Electrical and Mechanical Auto Service we can diagnose, fix and reset every fault there is. So if your vehicle is displaying a warning light on its dashboard, you need to give us a call.
