Unfortunately, there are a variety of reasons as to why the check engine light will come on. From a loose gas cap to a failing transmission system, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of the light without proper diagnostic equipment. Once you have a better understanding of what could trigger the light, you can feel less intimidated by it and make appropriate decisions to get professional care. Although we recommend you have the following components serviced by professionals like us, we want you to know about a couple of common causes for the check engine light!
A major component of your vehicle’s electrical systems, the battery is what helps power the electrical functions within your vehicle and helps start the engine. You’ll notice something is wrong if you see some of your electrical systems randomly shut off. Another symptom is your vehicle having difficulty starting, or not starting at all. Regardless, make sure you have the battery replaced as soon as possible!
The catalytic converter is used to convert harmful emissions created by your engine into less dangerous gases like carbon dioxide. When this component is damaged, not only will it trigger the check engine light, it can also cause other problems such as a reduced fuel economy, poor engine performance, and increased running temperatures. Make sure you have this component fixed or replaced as soon as possible!
