Engine Light Diagnostics in Kirkland, WA


When something is wrong with one of your vehicle's parts, it can be hard to tell right off the bat. Luckily, our vehicles come equipped with a system of warning lights that alert us when something is wrong. Through our dashboard lights, our vehicle will show us which area of the car needs to be taken a look at. Whether you drive a BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, or Mini, these dashboard lights have mostly universal appearances. 

 

However, sometimes it is not very obvious what this light is trying to tell us. One dashboard light that turns on when various parts are malfunctioning is the check engine light. If your check engine light turns on, it is a good idea to observe when the light turns on and if the light is flashing or is steady. Generally speaking, a steady check engine light does not mean the issue is immediately urgent (although you should still get the issue checked out), but if the light is flashing, you should get your car checked at an auto repair shop immediately. If you are in Bellevue, Washington, Kirkland, Washington, Redmond, Washington, The Greater Kirkland Area, Washington, [city 5], or nearby, you can come to Signature Independent in King. We can determine why your check engine light has turned on by performing a check engine light diagnostic and fix the issue efficiently and skillfully.

 

Here are some reasons your check engine light may have turned on:

 

What are OBD II trouble codes?

On-Board Diagnostics, or OBD, is a computer system in your vehicle's diagnostic system established in 1996 that monitors and identifies issues with your vehicle. When the OBD system identifies an issue, it turns on the check engine light and records an OBD trouble code. When you bring your vehicle to Signature Independent, we pull codes from the OBD system by plugging a code reader, or scan tool, into your vehicle's OBD port. These codes provide us with more information on under what conditions the check engine light was turned on, making it easier for us to identify what the issue is with your vehicle.
