Volkswagen Check Engine Light Diagnosis Service

If Your Check Engine Light Is on, Bring Your VW to Byers Volkswagen for a Checkup

Is the check engine light in your Volkswagen eliminated? Not to be confused with your maintenance needed light, the check engine light is typically an image of an engine, in yellow or orange. It signifies that your vehicle's onboard diagnostic system has detected a potential problem. It alerts you through the dashboard warning light, so you can have your vehicle inspected and the issue resolved. Don't put off having it checked when our certified VW technicians can diagnose the underlying issue quickly and correctly. Only when we know what the true cause is, can we fix it for you.

Possible Reasons for Your Check Engine Light Coming on

The check engine light can be tricky because there can be many reasons for it coming on. It could signify an issue with your exhaust, fuel, or ignition systems. With so many potential causes, it is important that you bring your vehicle into Byers Volkswagen so we can retrieve the code stored within your system. With this information, we can identify the underlying issue quicker. It could be as simple as a loose gas cap, or something as severe as a misfiring engine. Other causes can include the emissions purge control valve, spark plugs, fuel injectors, ignition coils, or the mass airflow or oxygen sensors.

What to Do When Your Check Engine Light Illuminates

If you just noticed that your check engine light is on, the first thing you can do is check your gas cap. It may just be that you forgot to screw the cap on tightly after filling up your gas tank. If this was the reason, your check engine light should go off within a day or so. If it does not, be sure to schedule an appointment for a check engine light diagnosis at Byers Volkswagen. The most important thing to note is that if your check engine light is flashing or blinking, rather than a solid light, you should pull over immediately to prevent serious damage to your engine and catalytic converter. This is because a flashing light can indicate your engine is misfiring and further driving is not advisable.
