Phoenix, AZ Car Repair Tip #10- Check Engine LIght

Car Repair in Phoenix is not always an ordeal, especially when your check engine light is on. The fact that your check engine light is on means your car is talking to you via the engine control unit. A check engine light is a problem leading to a question of when, not if, something will fail or is failing, but you are getting some advanced warning (if it is newly lit - if you have been ignoring it, well........... it could be too late for a quick fix). 

If your check engine light is flashing, you shouldn’t drive at highway speeds, tow, or haul heavy loads. Drive in - slowly and steady.

If the light is glowing steadily schedule an appointment with us to get it checked out. It could be more than 1 thing because the control unit typically monitors 8 to 80 different functions.
 
A vehicle’s engine control unit has access to a variety of devices in the car - codes define the nature of the problem. An engine control unit will check the airbag, turning signals and other courtesy lights for consistency and functionality as well as monitor the temperature of your oil and other important readouts of the vehicle.  Every car has many functioning computers controlling multiple functions.
