Ask a Dakota Ridge Auto Tech: Check Engine Light

check engine lightDakota Ridge Auto Tech Question:

Hi, my name is Alex. My check engine light came on in my car. I’ve tried several things to make it go off but nothing has worked. What should I do?

Dakota Ridge Auto Answer:

Many of us Littleton drivers have experienced a check engine light coming on suddenly. We’re frustrated because we don’t know why.

Of course, that’s perfectly understandable. There are hundreds of reasons for the check engine light to come on – and there’s only one light.

Alex said he tried several things to get the light to go off – but none of them worked. His goal was to get the light to turn off. I would suggest that the goal should be to find out what caused the light to come on in the first place – and have it fixed properly by one of our techs.

You can search the Internet and find millions of sites with tricks to get your vehicle check engine light to turn off. But what good does that do? Whatever caused the light to come on still is not working. Not getting to the bottom of the problem can lead to other problems for Littleton drivers – some minor and some more serious. Your gas cap might be loose or your engine could be misfiring, it all depends.
