Dashboard Warning Light
The engine warning light could indicate that there is an issue with the engine or other things as well. You may notice some symptoms that can indicate there is an issue with the engine. One sign is any lack of power from the vehicle. The accelerator may also produce intermittent stuttering when it is applied. This will usually be caused by a misfire from the engine. Any abnormal response from the engine could also cause the light to illuminate on the dashboard. We can also check the electrical sensor, as this is sometimes an issue too.
The ABS light may come on for the vehicle as well. This will notify you if the antilock brake system has an issue. You may also notice an issue with the brake system if they are not responding as they otherwise should be. If the brakes take longer than usual to slow your vehicle down, then the brakes could be wearing. You will want to make sure that you schedule an appointment with us. No matter what dashboard warning light comes on for your vehicle, make sure to have it inspected. Having the vehicle looked at can help prevent an accident from occurring.
