Many car owners believe that they can take their cars into any shop when their check engine light comes on and the shop will scan the vehicle and immediately identify the issue. However, the scan does not tell you what the problem is; it only tells you that there is an issue.
When the check engine light comes on it means the computer that operates the power train sees something out of its programmed parameters, and that generally indicates there's a problem with the vehicle.
At Weber Automotive, we offer a free code scan in order to provide our customers with more value. If your check engine light comes on, we will run our code scanner which gives us direction to tell you where the problem is. From there we can tell you what tests have to be done beyond that scan to determine exactly what's causing that light to come on. The code is not a diagnosis as it does not tell you what needs to be done to solve that problem.
It is just like when you have a hurt knee; you know that something is wrong, but you may not know why. So, you go to the doctor because your knee hurts and the doctor runs test and ask questions to figure out why your knee hurts.
Similarly, our technicians are like car doctors, you come to us when your check engine light is on, we take a look, and then we can start to diagnose the issues and how to remedy them!
