Why Is My Volkswagen Vehicle’s Check Engine Light On?
The check engine light on your Volkswagen may turn on for many different reasons, both large and small. In order to figure out what the specific problem is, a code reader is necessary. While the check engine light doesn’t necessarily indicate a large problem, it does mean that your engine needs immediate attention.
What Else Should I Know About the Check Engine Light?
Major and minor issues alike can cause a check engine light to come on. Something as simple as a cracked gas cap will trigger the sensors, causing the light to illuminate. However, there are also serious issues that can cause the check engine light to come on. If you see additional symptoms pointing towards a possible engine problem--including smoke coming from the engine, decreased power, or strange noises--it’s a good idea to call a roadside assistance service to have your vehicle towed to the dealership rather than risking a drive.
