If the check engine light is ever triggered in your vehicle, it’s important that you know how to handle it. Even though the warning light doesn’t provide you with much detail or context, it does provide enough to know how you should proceed.
When the light is first triggered, pay attention to how it’s lighted and the color of the warning signal. If the light is red and the light is flashing, that signifies something is significantly wrong. In this situation, we recommend you stop driving immediately and visit our shop as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
If the light is orange and steady, that means there’s a minor problem with your vehicle. For the time being, your vehicle is fine and no harm is done by driving it. Make sure to check the gas cap in your vehicle, as that is a common culprit for the warning signal and is a very easy fix. After you’ve tightened or replaced the gas cap, drive a few miles and see if your vehicle recognizes the change. If the light shuts off, you are good to go! If not, then you’ll need to schedule a visit with us, as there is another issue that needs professional diagnostic service to determine the problem.
