Ah, the dreaded dashboard lights… Signaling that something is wrong with your car and that you'll have to spend some money. Yikes! No one loves those little lights, but they are there for a reason, and that is to help you save money rather than waste it!
These dashboard lights allow you to know when there is an issue with your car so you can get it fixed. As with any problem, the longer you wait to solve it, the bigger the issue gets. This is especially true with car troubles.
There are several hundred possible codes or things that could go wrong with the car. There's only one light. So, that's when you've got to dig a little deeper to find out what's malfunctioning.
If your check engine light comes on, it's best to get to the root of the cause as soon as possible. If you see that little guy turn on, schedule an appointment with Weber Automotive for a diagnosis and suggested plan of attack.
However, if the check engine light comes on and it is flashing, find the nearest place to park safely and call a tow truck. The flashing check engine light signals a major issue with the engine that is doing major damage to your car if you continue to drive it.
This is so you know that they are working! New cars these days do a great job of self-testing and monitoring to alert us if something is wrong.
