Lasalle Auto Care Check Engine Light

It is important to be aware of the “Check Engine” light if it should happen to come on because something may be wrong with your vehicle. This light does not diagnose the exact problem, which is why you need to bring in your vehicle so we can inspect it and diagnose the problem.


Why is it important?

  • Makes you aware of a problem with your vehicle before it is too late. Without the warning light, you may not know there is a problem with your car until it is too late.
  • A flashing light indicates a problem that is currently happening and may require immediate attention. A steady light can be inspected at the first convenient opportunity.

Did you know?

A loose gas cap can trigger the “Check Engine” light to come one. Make sure the cap is secure and tight all the time.

We can determine the problem area by connecting a “scan tool” to your vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system. Once that has been determined, we can further diagnose the cause and recommend the correction.

Maintenance Tips:Frequent vehicle inspections will minimize the number of times this light come on.
