 Check Engine Diagnosis Service 

Check Engine Diagnosis in Detroit, MI

The check engine light on your dashboard display is very small, but when it stays lit, instead of fading away with the other warning lights after ignition, it seems to dominate the display. If you’re like most drivers, you may find yourself stealing glances as you drive, praying that it has gone out.

This behavior has been gripping drivers since 1996 when the Federal government, in its effort to curb auto emissions, mandated that all cars, light trucks, and vehicles needed to have onboard diagnostics (OBD) incorporated into their computer systems. This sophisticated program was written to detect failures in several systems and if found, turn on the check engine light once it has set what is known as a diagnostic trouble code (DTC).


Illuminated Check Engine Light

When the light comes on, it could be letting you know you failed to tighten the gas cap on your last fill-up and, as a result, are wasting fuel and adding pollution to the atmosphere. Or at the other end of the scale, your engine may be misfiring which can lead to permanent damage. That’s where the DTC comes in.

Deciphering the Diagnostic Trouble Code

There’s no need to panic, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore it. What needs to be done is to take it to a mechanic who has the proper tools to read the code. But beware, this is no easy task. The Diagnostic Trouble code can be hard to crack. Reading it is only step one. Even mechanics with years of experience have trouble getting to the heart of the problem. This is why drivers in Detroit, MI know to bring their vehicle to Ray Laethem Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for a check engine diagnostic when they notice their check engine light is on.
