Every Volkswagen has an onboard diagnostic system with a check engine light that signals to the driver that a problem has been detected. The onboard diagnostic system has a centralized computer with sensors positioned throughout your vehicle’s primary systems and crucial components. The sensors constantly monitor fluid levels, temperatures, speed, positions, pressures, etc. The computer illuminates the check engine light when a sensor detects a problem. While onboard diagnostic systems are excellent for problem detection, the check engine light does not provide further details about the problem nor how to fix it. You will need a check engine light diagnosis for accurate problem identification and repair execution.
Most check engine lights are solid rather than flashing. Solid check engine lights signal less severe problems with continued driving possible but remember mechanical problems tend to worsen with time/continued use. We recommend scheduling a check engine light diagnosis service to contain the problem and repair cost. Flashing check engine lights signal more serious malfunctions with catastrophic damage possible. Volkswagen recommends stopping your vehicle in a safe position and getting it towed to the service center to prevent severe damage.
A certified technician begins by extracting the trouble code from the onboard diagnostic system’s computer. We research the trouble code, consider performance-related symptoms reported by the driver, and inspect the involved components to verify the problem and formulate an accurate repair recommendation.
Volkswagen owners can schedule a check engine light diagnosis service appointment online or by phone. The online service scheduler features 24-7 access and quick completion with guided information submission. Rest in the comfortable waiting area while we complete your check engine light diagnosis.
