Volkswagen Check Engine Light

As part of the on-board diagnostic system of your vehicle, the check engine light illuminates as an indicator that there is a fault or malfunction with your vehicle. The check engine light is shaped like an engine and is typically colored yellow, orange, or amber. It is located on the dashboard. The check engine light can be blinking or steady. As you can imagine, a blinking light indicates a more urgent problem with your vehicle. At Volkswagen Princeton, we recommend you bring your vehicle to our certified technicians as soon as possible so we can diagnose and fix the problem that has triggered the check engine light. We also carry certified OEM Volkswagen auto parts if your vehicle requires new parts.

Common Triggers for the Check Engine Light

The check engine light (CEL) is formally known as the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL). It is linked to several components of the vehicle. This includes different sensors in the vehicle, such as the oxygen sensor or mass airflow sensor. The check engine light can also illuminate if the gas cap is loose or broken. Some of the other triggers include bad spark plugs, a problem with the engine, a malfunction with the catalytic converter, a weak car battery, fuel or emission-related issues. The only way to pinpoint the trigger is to get a diagnosis service. At Volkswagen Princeton, we will use a scanning device to connect with your vehicle’s computer. This device will scan the error code to identify the issue with the vehicle.
