Warning lights showing on your dashboard? Is your car advising you that you need to bring it in for a service?
Car dashboard lights are connected to your vehicle’s onboard computer. When you’re in motion or you’re parked up, your onboard computer runs hundreds of tests to make sure that all the vital components of your car are operating correctly. One of the first things we do when you bring your car in for service is to connect to your onboard computer to get its readings.
These readings can tell us about problems with your braking, power within your engine, airbag issues, power steering problems, and much more. Beware though because even if you have a car code reading kit at home, it’s best to bring it in to Vulcan Motors.
Why? Because codes only every tell part of the story. For most makes of car, there are over 500 codes. One code that causes concern may be telling you about three or four different problems. If your fuel level sensor code indicates that something’s wrong, which one of your two fuel tank sensors is it? Has its harness opened? Or has it shorted because of a poor electrical connection?
Bring your vehicle into Vulcan for a full service and rest assured that our team know how to read and interpret warning lights and ODB codes.
