What is the Check Engine Light?
Modern vehicles come equipped with on-board technology, from OBDII engine management to tire pressure monitoring. Most of these systems are self-diagnosing, and can test and monitor for faults or problems. They alert you to a problem through a dash-mounted warning light.
A check engine light means a problem has been detected with the engine management system, and a system has failed a self-check and set a fault code. There are literally hundreds of codes that serve as causes for the check engine light to turn on.
The check engine light will illuminate solid for most faults – this means the driver should have the vehicle looked at as soon as possible. If the check engine light is flashing, it is an indication of a more serious issue. Pull over and shut the vehicle off immediately to prevent emission system damage.
Other warning lights can be a signal of low tire pressure, a faulty tire pressure monitoring system, above-normal engine temperature, or any number of issues.
