Check Engine Light On?

The dreaded check engine light. Nothing will ruin a weekend road trip faster than that annoying little light staring back at you for a couple hundred miles. It’s not uncommon for us to receive phone calls from panicked clients who are worried about the check engine light on their Volvo, SAAB, BMW or MINI. Sometimes the check engine light is a big deal. Sometimes it’s not. Knowing whether that check engine light is cause for concern or whether it’s a minor issue can be very helpful. If your check engine light has you worried, bring it by the shop. We’ll check your car’s codes with one of our diagnostic code readers free of charge. You don’t even need to make an appointment.

Diagnostic Code Reader

Think of it as a first level screening. It won’t retrieve manufacturer specific codes but it’s a good place to start. With the information that we get from a quick scan, we can often advise you about the severity of a problem and give a repair estimate. Some problems will require the use of our factory software systems for complete test results. If a more involved diagnosis is required, we’ll let you know what the cost will be for the diagnosis and the time that it will take to complete. If you have any questions about your check engine light, you can always feel free to call our service department directly at (301) 340-7222.
