Today’s vehicles are more technologically advanced than ever before. This technology allows for better performance, communication between your vehicle’s system, and it lets you know about potential issues before they become major problems. Your On-Board Diagnostics or OBD regularly scans the major systems in your vehicle looking for anything that might be amiss. When it finds a problem it triggers one or more warning lights on your dashboard. If your check engine light or any other dashboard warning light is on, it is time for a trip to Herold Family Automotive and Tire in Parma, OH for computer diagnostics and repair.
Check Engine Light
We’ve all done it. Pretended not to notice when our check engine light was on to avoid a trip to the repair shop. Contrary to popular belief, ignoring it will not make it go away. Next time your check engine light comes on drive on over to our shop for a diagnostic scan.
The check engine light is triggered by a variety of problems and potential issues from a loose gas cap to transmission trouble. Whatever the cause, it is better to address it sooner and avoid further damage.
When you start an automotive repair with an advanced computer diagnostic scan, it acts as a road map for your mechanic so they know where to start. The diagnostic tool provides a code or series of codes that tell your technician where the problem is located, but not the exact issue. That’s where the expertise of our ASE Certified Mechanics comes in.
Once we know where the problem is, we can take a deeper dive into your vehicle to find the exact cause of your check engine light.
