The check engine light used to have a bad rap, since older cars didn’t have modern technology to narrow down the problem. The check engine light would illuminate on the dashboard, and many car owners would simply ignore it.
Today’s European cars have many sensors and electronic monitoring systems to pinpoint the exact problem. When you see the warning indicator on your dashboard, it is important not to ignore it. Call us for an appointment to check it out.
If the engine light is flashing on your dashboard, you should pull over in a safe area, turn off your engine, and call for a tow. The flashing check engine light indicates an engine problem that could cause even more damage if you continue to drive. At Titan Auto Tech, our technicians accurately & quickly diagnose any issues with your car.
