Our cars have a huge range of things that can go wrong and many of those systems are attached to the diagnostic part of our engines. This means that when something goes wrong, we are notified by the presence of the check engine light.
The check engine light is a small light that is often shaped like an engine and is located on the dashboard or the primary display behind the steering wheel. This light can come on for a range of reasons from something simple like the oil needs to be changed to a more complex service like the transmission is going out. When your check engine light comes on you can get it checked by a service center and the code for the issue can be then read. Each code corresponds to a different issue within the car and the code and then can be interpreted into what needs to be fixed and what service needs to be performed.
When the check engine light comes on in your car you should be taking the time to get it checked as soon as possible. With this type of issue your service center is going to hook the car up to the computer and read the codes that have made the light come on. When the code is read the service technician can then determine what needs to be done to get the car back to working order and to get the light to turn off.
A check engine light does not necessarily mean that your entire car is about to stop running and you need to panic. It does, however, mean that something is wrong and that something is amiss with the normal operating of the car. When the check engine light comes on, you do need to have the code read and to find out what is wrong so that the light can then be turned off.
