Your check engine light is both a warning and a mystery, as it lets you know something is wrong but doesn’t immediately specify what. This can cause a lot of anxiety or confusion in some drivers, and both of those feelings can cause you to put off getting it diagnosed. At Bravo Cadillac, we don’t want you to go through all that, which is why we have our check engine light diagnosis service ready and waiting to help you know what’s going on.
Sensors line your engine and fuel system. They can sense anything from temperature to oxygen percentage, and they’re constantly monitoring the function of your engine. When one of those gets a reading outside of normal, it sends a code to the car’s computer, which logs the code and then turns on your check engine light. This means that, due to the number of sensors, there are multiple reasons a check engine light can turn on, but it’s always better to get it checked out than to assume it’s not a problem.
Our certified technicians will make sure that they and you know exactly why your check engine light turned on. This starts with reading the code the computer logged from a sensor reading. They can look up which sensor it was and what the code indicates, but they then have to dig to find the real cause of the check engine light. Once they do, they’ll let you know and help you with your options going forward.
If your check engine light turns on and stays on, that usually means you have a problem that needs to be looked at soon. You have time to set up an appointment and come to our service center. If your check engine light is flashing, this means your engine is in imminent danger of damage, and you should pull over right away and tow your car to our service center. Check engine lights are always something you should take care of before turning into more significant problems for you.
Our certified technicians have the experience and training necessary to narrow down the cause of your check engine light in no time. They’re diagnostic experts and know exactly where to look to find and prove or eliminate theories from their list of possible problems. After they’re done, they’ll provide a complimentary multi-point inspection, so you’ll get the most from your visit. While you wait, enjoy our complimentary beverages, coffee, and Wi-Fi.
