We’ve all seen them come up at one time or another, the yellow or red light that is commonly referred to as your check engine or service engine soon light. There are now a variety of lights that can come on your dashboard when there is an issue with your vehicle. They are called Malfunction Indicator Lights. They monitor several sensors throughout your vehicle from your engine or transmission to your exhaust system. “Trouble Codes” are associated with these lights and here at Master Automotive Centers we can help you decipher these codes.

If you have a check engine light or service engine soon light on that you’ve been ignoring because you think that it might be a highly involved or costly repair that might not be the case. We can quickly and easily read the trouble code for you and it may come back simply indicating that your gas cap is not sealing well and is causing an evaporative emission system leak. In any case, when it comes to a check engine light it is best to be safe rather than sorry. If it so happens to be a bigger repair that is needed, we will communicate with you every step of the way so you know your options and can make the best decision for you and your vehicle.

There are lights that are also programmed to come up once certain mileage or time markers are reached. If you have an oil change performed but the technician forgot to reset the computer in your vehicle letting it know that your oil had already been changed, then you might have an oil change light or maintenance required light come on to indicate that a service is needed. 

Let us read the trouble codes and provide you with professional service advice to give you the peace of mind you have been looking for when it comes to maintaining your vehicle. Your check engine light or service engine soon light can come on at any time from the moment you start your vehicle and it is always best to have your vehicle inspected by a professional any time your check engine light comes within a reasonable period of time.
