What Should You Do When the Check Engine Light Comes on in Your Volkswagen?
Your VW is equipped with high-tech internal diagnostic systems that can alert you if a problem arises while you're driving. One of the most common questions we get from VW drivers is "what should I do when the 'Check Engine' light comes on in my vehicle?" The first thing you can do is to check the owner's manual for your specific model. It can offer some helpful advice and troubleshooting steps so you can better understand why this light has come on.
Why Does the Check Engine Light Come On?
Sometimes it can be something as simple as a fuel cap that requires tightening. Other times it could mean that further professional diagnostics and repair is required, which is why you should contact the service department at Carter Volkswagen if you're unable to fix the issue yourself within a few simple steps.
