Seeing warning lights in your vehicle dash is a cause of concern for any vehicle owner.

With so many different systems dependent on the mechanical and electrical functioning of your vehicle, paying attention to these alerts and getting the issues they are indicating resolved as quickly as possible is incredibly important.

Such a broad indicator can make it challenging to know what exactly is going wrong, and the light itself can even indicate various problems, based on the display.

What to do when your dash “Check Engine” light is illuminated:

  • Flashing Check Engine Light- This is urgent and should be treated that way. If you Check Engine light is on and flashing, then continuing to operate your vehicle can cause damage to your engine or to your catalytic converter. Find a safe place to pull over as quickly as possible, and call a tow service to bring your vehicle to us.
  • Flashing, Then Solid Check Engine Light- If your engine light is flashing, but then goes to solid, you will still want to treat this as an urgent matter, and should navigate to our shop for an inspection as soon as possible. If the light begins blinking again, follow the steps above.
  • Solid Check Engine Light- While not as urgent as a blinking check engine light, a solid engine light is still an indicator that something is wrong. Try the quick fix below, and if that doesn’t work and the light persists, reach out to us to schedule service.
  • Quick Fix- If the check engine light is steady, and there are no signs of other engine or mechanical issues, it may simply indicate that your fuel cap is loose. This means that getting the light to go off can be as simple as tightening the cap. If that solves the problem and the light goes off, there is no need for mechanical analysis or repairs at this time.
