Check Engine Light

check engine light, Kremer ServicesIf you are driving a vehicle with a check engine light glaring at you from your instrument dash, you are not alone. Vehicle owners with their check engine light on are one of our most common calls. Please understand that there are two parts to the check engine light……the 1st part is the easy part.  We hook up your vehicle to our computer and we scan your vehicles computer system for the codes that are causing the check engine light to turn on. These are called “stored codes”.  There are hundreds of codes in your vehicle computer.  These “stored codes” simply point our technicians in the right direction.  The real work is the diagnostic time necessary to determine “why” a code is indicating there is a problem.  At Kremer Services we have technicians with years of experience. If you have a check engine light on in your vehicle, trust our experienced technicians to determine the reason why!

Here is additional information about your check engine light…..

The Check Engine Light/Service Engine Soon light comes on the dash when there is an emissions related failure. Be sure to take this seriously. This light does not mean that you just need an oil change or routine maintenance. There are many different systems/component failures that may cause this light to come on! Your vehicle should be taken to Kermer’s for diagnostic work.

If the light stays on solid, don’t panic, call your Kremer’s and set up an appointment to determine the reason the light is on. Do this at your earliest possible convenience.

If your check engine light is on solid, and the vehicle is running rough, you want to get to Kremer Services as soon as possible.

If the light is flashing, this means things are slightly more serious. Also, get your vehicle to your repair facility ASAP to prevent the risk of more damage. If the light is blinking and the engine is running rough, stop the vehicle immediately to prevent potential serious damage. Contact Kremer Services to arrange a tow and repair. 651-455-1604.
