Hyundai Check Engine Light Diagnosis Service

If the Check Engine Light in Your Vehicle Turns On, Visit Germain Hyundai in Columbus, OH for Check Engine Light Diagnostic Service

Your Hyundai is equipped with a number of warning lights that can help you to know when something needs attention in your vehicle. It's important to pay attention to these lights. The check engine light is perhaps the most infamous warning light, partly because it's so seemingly vague. On this page, we'll go into more detail on what this light means and how you should react. Find out more here, or just head to Germain Hyundai near Grove City and Hilliard.

What Does the Check Engine Light Mean?

Your vehicle's engine control unit, or ECU, constantly monitors the state of your engine, checking multiple factors to make sure that everything is running smoothly. If it senses that something is not as it should be, the ECU does two things simultaneously: it turns on the check engine light and stores a code pointing to the component or system that has the problem. When you bring your Hyundai in for check engine light diagnostic service, our technicians will hook the ECU up to a code reader that will be able to let us know what part of your engine needs attention.

What to Do if the Check Engine Light Comes On

As long as the check engine light is solid, you can keep driving without worrying too much. However, when you reach your destination, you should schedule an appointment at Germain Hyundai. This is because a solid check engine light means that the issue is probably not an emergency; however, it will likely affect your vehicle's emissions, performance, or efficiency.

What Does a Flashing Check Engine Light Mean?

If the check engine light is flashing, it means that there's a more serious problem. Often, an engine misfire can cause a flashing check engine light -- and if this happens, it's a good idea to pull over as soon as you can safely do so, and then shut the engine off. If you don't, your Hyundai's catalytic converter may be destroyed.
