Check Engine Light in Venice, Florida
The Check Engine Light: A Wealth of Information
The Reason Behind It
If your vehicle’s check engine light is illuminated, it may cause mental angst. Is this an emergency? Should you keep driving or pull over? What could be the problem? After all, the warning may seem vague to you. If you choose Pit Stop in Venice, Florida, for check engine light diagnostics and repair, you won’t have to worry. Although no driver wants to see the malfunctioning indicator lamp, it’s there to alert you that your automobile needs attention. While an earlier version of the warning system was brand specific, the second generation (Onboard Diagnostic System second generation, OBD-II) was implemented in 1996 and is now required on all new cars sold in the US to assist with emissions control. This second system generates trouble codes that are universal to all auto brands. A check engine light that’s on typically remains solid as you drive. This is not an emergency.
