Here is more information about our check engine light diagnosis.
The check engine light is also known as the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp). It is typically colored orange or amber and is located in the dashboard of the vehicle. The role of the check engine light is to illuminate as an indicator that one or more components or systems of the vehicle have malfunctioned. Most modern Volkswagen models have the check engine light indicator as a standard feature of the vehicle. Keep in mind that the check engine light might illuminate temporarily as the vehicle checks its circuits, but it should turn off if it detects no issues with the vehicle.
There are different components and systems of the vehicle that are linked to the check engine light. A fault with the catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, fuel cap, catalytic converter, exhaust, mass airflow sensor, battery, engine, or several other components can trigger the check engine light. You might want to check the fuel cap, as a loose fuel cap is a common reason for the check engine light to switch on. In most cases, your vehicle will require a professional check engine light diagnosis.
At Volkswagen of Streetsboro, we have professional-grade diagnostic tools that we will use to find the issue with your vehicle. A scanning device will be connected to the diagnosis system of your vehicle to decipher the error code. This device is designed to pinpoint the issue that has resulted in the check engine light illuminating. Once the issue has been identified, our technicians are fully equipped to fix any problem with your vehicle. We will reset the indicator once the problem has been fully resolved.
