Mopar Check Engine Light Diagnosis Service

What Does the Check Engine Light on My Dashboard Mean?

The warning light on your dashboard indicates that your vehicle's diagnostic system has detected a potential problem. The check engine light could mean that the issue is with your vehicle's ignition, fuel, emissions, or exhaust systems. For example, it could mean that your vehicle is emitting pollutants at levels above those allowed by the government. Typically the warning light is yellow or orange and in the image of an engine. It shouldn't be confused with the maintenance light on your dashboard, which simply means you are due for routine maintenance. The check engine light signifies a problem, and if it is flashing or blinking, the problem is a serious one. Bring your vehicle to the service department at Ram Country Chrysler Jeep Dodge Fiat of Del Rio, TX, and we can retrieve the diagnostic code stored in its system. We can use this to diagnose and fix the underlying cause for your check engine light's illumination.

Problems That Can Cause Your Check Engine Light to Illuminate

The check engine light is tricky, as it could be a simple fix, such as a loose gas cap or a much larger and more hazardous problem. If the warning light is flashing, then you need to bring your vehicle to the professionals as soon as possible, as this indicates a serious problem. It could be that your engine is misfiring, and continuing to drive could further damage your catalytic converter. Pull over, and have your car, truck or SUV towed to our service department in Del Rio. Other potential causes of a check engine light are:

  • Mass airflow sensor
  • Spark plugs
  • Ignition coils
  • Thermostat
  • Oxygen sensor
  • Emissions purge control valve or solenoid
  • Fuel injectors

What To Do When Your Check Engine Light Comes On

Ignoring the warning sign when your check engine light comes on could cause your vehicle to stall, lead to costly damage, and even decrease your fuel efficiency. The first thing you should do is check your gas cap, as it could be faulty or simply not screwed on all the way. After tightening it, if the light doesn't go off in a day or two, then bring your vehicle in for an inspection. We can diagnose the cause of your warning light, fix the problem, turn off the light, and get you back on the road.
