Occasionally, a light will appear on your dashboard. These lights are in place to warn you when there is a problem with the vehicle, such as there being a problem with the oil pressure or that the washer fluid needs replacing. However, one of these lights seems to cause more concern among drivers than others and that’s the engine management light. This appears when there is a problem with the engine control unit and it highlights when something isn’t quite right.
What Does the Engine Management Light Mean?
If you have been driving for a number of years, you may have seen the engine management light appear on the dashboard of your vehicle. However, the chances are you weren’t sure why it was showing or how to fix the issue. Luckily, you’re not alone and a lot of people don’t know too much about the engine lights on their dashboard. Though there are specific lights for specific problems, the engine management light covers a lot more. When the engine management light appears, it’s not the end of the world and there’s no need to stress out immediately. After all, the problem could be minor. Some of the common reasons for the engine management light to appear are:
- An Emissions System Fault
- A Fault With the Mass Airflow Sensor
- An Ignition System Fault
- A Loose Petrol or Diesel Cap
However, there are also other reasons for the engine management light to appear. This is why it’s so difficult to know initially what’s causing the problem and whether or not it’s serious. When the engine management light appears, it’s best to seek the help of a professional. By doing so, the problem can be fixed quickly and effectively.
