What is Check Engine Light Diagnosis?

Check engine light diagnosis in Willoughby Hills is connecting the sophisticated diagnostic equipment at Eastside Volkswagen to your vehicle via the onboard computer plug-in. This plug-in is usually located under the dash in the driver’s side area of your vehicle. When the light is on, our system combs the computer messages to find the code responsible for the light. Our computers then cross-reference the code to help identify specific components for review. We can assist by installing new parts or providing specialized services to correct the root issue. After this, the code can be cleared from the computer.

What Should I do When My Check Engine Light Comes On?

While a check engine light should not be ignored, it is rarely connected to an emergency. If you see the check engine light appear in a solid-state and your vehicle is operating as expected, continue to your destination but contact our service center as soon as possible or use our website to book an appointment to review the light. When the light appears and a decline in power or performance is felt, or the light is flashing, the situation is more serious. Find a safe location, pull over and contact Eastside Volkswagen for an urgent appointment.

Why is My Volkswagen Check Engine Light On?

The reasons for the check engine light appearing can range from random blips, such as the gas tank door being left open, to more serious problems, such as the failure of a sensor. Many error codes for the light are connected to issues with the catalytic converter and connected components, making a quick check essential to avoid more costly repairs down the road.
