Ask The Tech: My Check Engine Light is On

napasa-check-engAsk the Tech:
I’m Alex. My Check Engine Light came on in my Car or SUV. I’ve tried several things to make it go off but nothing has worked. What should I do?

Douglas Automotive Repair, Inc. Answer:
Like Alex, most of us Plainfield drivers have experienced a check engine light coming on suddenly. We’re frustrated because we don’t know why.

Of course that’s perfectly understandable: There are hundreds of reasons for the check engine light to come on – and there’s only one light.

Alex said she tried several things to get the light to go off – but it didn’t work. Her goal was to get the light to turn off. I would suggest that the goal should be to find out what caused the light to come on in the first place – and fix it.

You can search the internet and find millions sites with tricks to get your Car or SUV check engine light to turn off. But what good does that do – whatever caused the light to come on is still wrong. Not getting to the bottom of the problem can lead to other problems for Plainfield motorists – some minor and some more serious (and pricey).

We can get you started down the road of properly diagnosing the problem and getting it repaired – try us first next time. Check our website for our “scan” special!
