Why You Should Pay Attention to Your Check Engine Light

Your check engine light comes on to indicate that your car’s onboard diagnostic system or (OBD) has detected a problem that can affect the way that your vehicle performs. Your check engine light can signify an array of different problems. It could mean a faulty oxygen sensor, loose or missing gas cap, broken catalytic converter, malfunctioning mass air flow sensor or misfiring spark plugs.

There isn’t a button to reset your check engine light. If the problem doesn’t reoccur, the indicator will turn itself off automatically. If the light remains on, you’ll need to get it checked out to prevent the problem from getting progressively worse.

Christian Brothers Automotive provides a complete inspection of your OBD to find the exact cause of the problem and minimize the cost of your repairs. The inspection reading is used to find out what triggered the light to turn on and what is needed to fix the problem. Christian Brothers Automotive will not sell you a part unless your car absolutely needs it. If the cause of your check engine indicator is misdiagnosed it can lead to costly repairs.
