VW Check Engine Light Diagnosis

Local Volkswagen Check Engine Light Diagnosis Near Lake Bluff, IL

Almost every driver is familiar with and dreads the check engine light. It's a light on your dashboard that comes on and, usually, won't turn off again until a technician takes a look and clears the code from your computer. At Libertyville Volkswagen, we're here not just to check your car but to thoroughly root out and diagnose the problem that caused the check engine light to turn on in the first place.

How the Check Engine Light Turns On

Your check engine light is controlled by the computer, which receives messages from about 60 to 100 different sensors inside your car. The sensors that line your fuel system measure the gas content around them, which is an excellent way to make sure your engine is functioning properly. When they get a reading that's outside normal parameters, they send a code to the computer, which the computer logs so that a technician can read it later. Then the computer turns on the check engine light to notify you of the problem.

What to Do When the Check Engine Light Turns On

It can be jarring if you've never had the check engine light come on before; usually, there isn't an immediate problem that will hurt your car. The one exception to this rule is when the check engine light starts flashing, and that means you need to pull over and call a tow to our state-of-the-art facility right away. Otherwise, you should set up an appointment and bring your car in when we're open, including Saturdays, to get the light checked.

How We Diagnose Your Check Engine Light

Our certified technicians start by getting the code from the computer to see which sensor gave an abnormal reading and what that reading was. From there, it's all up to the technicians. Fortunately, our experts have been trained to know what types of problems or situations can cause different sensor readings. They'll go into your fuel system and engine to confirm their suspicions and be sure of the problem before consulting with you.
