The Dreaded Check Engine Light

Everyone knows the dreaded check engine light. No matter how long you have been driving, you know that when that light comes on, your vehicle is telling you something is not right, but what is wrong?

What Does the Check Engine Light Mean?

The check engine light is designed to alert the driver when something is wrong. With vehicles being as advanced as they are, there are many computers communicating back and forth whenever your car is on. Your engine light will come on for a wide variety of reasons, and it can be hard to tell why unless you bring it in for an inspection. 

What Does a Flashing Check Engine Light Mean?

While a solid check engine light means you need to bring your vehicle in at your earliest convenience, a flashing check engine light means it is urgent. If you see your check engine light flashing, do not drive your car! This flashing icon means that there is potential damage to your catalytic converter, which is not cheap to repair. Driving your vehicle with the check engine light flashing can cause further damage. 

You should have your car towed to the shop if this light is flashing as long as you are in a safe location. If you are somewhere that you would not be safe waiting for a tow truck, drive to a safe location and then deal with the issue. Your safety is always more important than your car.
