Why Does the Check Engine Light Illuminate?

As a vital component of the vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system, the check engine light is designed to switch on if it gets an error signal from one of the vehicle systems. It could be a faulty sensor, loose gas cap, malfunctioning catalytic converter, or other types of issues that can trigger the check engine light. A diagnostic service is required to determine the specific issues with the vehicle. Generally, the check engine light is located on the dashboard and is shaped like a car engine. Another name for the check engine light is malfunction indicator lamp (MIL). Although a blinking or flashing check engine light indicates a more urgent issue with your vehicle, we recommend you not delay getting diagnostic service regardless of blinking or steady light.

Check Engine Light Diagnosis at Carolina Volkswagen

At Carolina Volkswagen, we carry professional-grade tools to complete the check engine light diagnosis. This includes a specialized error scanning device that our technicians will connect to your vehicle. This device will obtain the error code from the vehicle’s computer and pinpoint the exact problem with the vehicle. Once the diagnosis is complete, our technicians will present their recommendations to you on possible options to fix the problem. If any part needs replacement, we can install a VW OEM part for your vehicle.
