Check Engine Light Diagnostics 101
If you’re like most people, when the Check Engine Light comes on, you’ll have emotions somewhere between panic and despair. At Los Angeles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, let us be the first service center to tell you that there’s nothing to worry about. That’s because you never have to worry when Los Angeles CDJR has you covered with a Check Engine Light Diagnostic Service. Of significance is the tendency for drivers to believe that pulling the trouble code will identify a specific problem; however, getting the trouble code is more like getting a detailed symptom of the core problem that tells a certified technician where to inspect to identify the root cause that requires repair.
If the Check Engine Light is Flashing
A flashing Check Engine Light signals a more serious problem has emerged. At Los Angeles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we always recommend stopping the vehicle and giving us a call if this happens. Since a flashing Check Engine Light indicates a more serious issue, it is not a very good idea to ignore the flashing and continue driving when significant damages might be close behind. If you have a flashing Check Engine Light, park the car and give us a call at Los Angeles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
I have the trouble code, now what?
So, you’re at the point that you know the trouble code pulled from the Electrical Control Unit associated with the Check Engine Light that’s on, but now what? Getting the trouble code pulled is only the first step in every Check Engine Light Diagnostic Service because the meat of the service is sitting down with a factory-trained certified service advisor for a recommendation on what to do next. Depending upon the trouble code, the problem’s root cause, and your vehicle’s characteristics, you will be given an accredited recommendation guided by professionalism, precision, and the stated factory specifications. The real value in every Check Engine Light Diagnostic Service is not getting the trouble code; rather, the real value is getting both the trouble code AND getting expert advice on the decision involving what to do next to restore your vehicle’s peak performance. Los Angeles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is conveniently located in the Los Angeles metropolitan area near Huntington Park & Lynwood, CA.
