Check Engine Light Come On? Have Us Take A Look.

WARNING LIGHTS/DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE

All new vehicles come with an onboard diagnostics port that hooks up to the vehicle’s computer. Whenever the vehicle detects that something may be wrong–whether it’s an emissions-related problem, a cooling system issue, an engine problem or something as simple as a loose gas cap, in some cases–the Check Engine light will appear.

If you’re interested in keeping your car in good running order and avoiding potentially expensive repairs, it’s always a good idea to get the light checked out ASAP.

What Should You Do When the Check Engine light is Displayed?

The easiest course of action is to bring your car over to Mercedes-Benz of Draper for one of our factory-certified technicians to pull the diagnostic code and isolate the cause. If your Check Engine light ever starts flashing, that means that the problem needs immediate attention and the vehicle should be taken in right away; a flashing light indicates that the problem is serious and if not taken care of immediately, may result in damage to the vehicle.

Check Engine Light Best Practices

We’ve compiled a list of best practices for you if your Check Engine Light ever comes on:

  • If the light is flashing, take your vehicle in IMMEDIATELY to be diagnosed and inspected: a flashing light indicates a serious problem with one of your vehicle’s components.
  • If the light is not flashing, check the gas cap. Oftentimes if the gas cap wasn’t tightened enough, the check engine light will display.
  • If tightening the gas cap does not make the light go away, take the vehicle in to have the diagnostic codes looked up.

If you follow those three simple rules and keep up on your vehicle’s maintenance, your car will last you a long time.

What Will Happen When I Take My Vehicle in to be Diagnosed?

Our technicians have the tools, training, and technology to handle diagnostic issues. The procedure usually includes the following steps:

  • RETRIEVE DATA: A diagnostic tool is connected to the vehicles’ onboard computer to review error codes. This gives us a general idea of the system that may be failing/malfunctioning.
  • VERIFICATION TESTING: This is a test to determine if the physical test matches the digital test. Some systems may have a leaky seal on a hose, or may be completely broken.
  • PINPOINT TESTING: Beside general systems test, pointed tests are usually required. This entails inspecting specific components for failure. This gives us a very pointed
  • RESEARCH TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS: Technical Service Bulletins and hotline information will indicate if the problem has been determined to be a pattern failure, meaning that it is a known issue that occurs with a particular type of vehicle. This does not eliminate the need for testing, as other systems must meet specifications before a service bulletin procedure should be performed.
  • SUGGEST NECESSARY REPAIRS: Of course, we would never perform or mandate a repair without your permission and authorization.
  • CAR REPAIR: We will perform necessary fixes including replacing parts, cleaning components, or performing updates.
  • VERIFY REPAIR: Once all necessary actions have been taken, the vehicle must be retested to verify that the repair is complete and has achieved the proper results.
