What Does the Check Engine Light Mean?
The check engine light will turn on when your car’s onboard computer (or On-Board Diagnostic system) detects a problem. Even with data from the car’s computer, it can be difficult to precisely diagnose the problem. One ASE-certified technicians can take the data from the OBD system to hone in on the problem. Some common reasons why your check engine light might be coming on include:
- Loose gas cap
- Faulty sensors
- Old or faulty spark plugs
- Failing catalytic converter
Your check engine light might not be on at all times. If the light comes on periodically, it might indicate that a part or component is nearing failure. If the light is on at all times, then this is a clear sign that the computer detects an issue that you need to address. If the light blinks on and off rapidly, this may be a sign of a major problem or other fault in the system. No matter the case, the safest option is to have an expert diagnose the problem.
