The check engine light is one of the more frustrating ones in your vehicle, and that’s largely because it seems so difficult to pin down. Just what does this alert mean? Is it cause for concern? On this page, we’ll walk you through the basics of the check engine light, including what it might mean and what you should do in response.
There isn’t one consistent answer, because the check engine light essentially means that your engine’s computer has detected something wrong with the engine’s normal functioning. When it senses an issue, the engine computer stores a code letting you know that something is amiss and needs to be looked into. When you bring your Mazda to Cutter Mazda Honolulu for check engine light diagnostic service, our technicians will use a code reader to find out just what the issue is.
As long as the check engine light is solid, it means that there is likely no emergency. A solid check engine light means that you can continue driving to your destination. Once you’re there, check the gas cap. Often, a loose or cracked gas cap will be the cause of the check engine light turning on. If it’s not that, schedule your appointment for service at Cutter Mazda Honolulu soon so that we can get to the bottom of things.
Your reaction should change if the check engine light is flashing instead of solid. This means that there’s a more serious issue, like an engine misfire. A misfiring engine can harm your Mazda’s catalytic converter, and these are expensive components to replace.
