How a Check Engine Light works

Vehicles with a this indicator have an on-board computer called an ECM or ECU. This stands for engine control module or unit. There are sensors throughout your vehicle that are in constant communication with the ECM. It ensures those connected parts on your Lakewood vehicle are meeting specified parameters for optimal performance. When one of those sensors detects a problem, it sends a code to the ECM as well as triggering your check engine light. Using special diagnostic tools we can retrieve your trouble code, and identify why your check engine light was activated. Reasons your check engine light can come on include:

Reasons for a Check Engine Light

  • Faulty Oxygen Sensors
  • Faulty Catalytic Converters
  • Faulty Spark Plugs or Wiring

This is just a small sample of why a check engine light might go on. Some of these can be incredibly simple fixes, some can be put off, some need to be immediately dealt with.
