What Professionals Use to Fix Check Engine Lights

With so many vehicles on the road running on different engines and computer systems, any number of problems could occur. That's why it's difficult to say for sure what exactly could be causing a check engine light. It's a guessing game without the use of advanced technology. But using today's technology, technicians enlist the help of diagnostic equipment in place of driver descriptions to accurately nail down problems. If your check engine light is on and you visit Springdale Automotive in Prospect, Kentucky for repairs, our technicians will use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to get information directly from your vehicle and provide accurate repairs.

How They Work

Unlike in the past, today's vehicles are outfitted with onboard computer systems that actively monitor the condition of parts. When something goes wrong, an alert is sent to the driver — the check engine light. Technicians plugin code readers or scanners to see what the car's system has identified. They collect data from a variety of vehicle systems and parts to detect what's not working properly. Armed with that information, technicians can provide repairs for the exact issue. When you work with technicians who rely on advanced technology to improve their services, you can feel confident that your mechanic won't need to perform unnecessary repairs or create extra costs.

Why We Use Them

The complex and sensitive electronic components used in today's vehicles are constantly working together for your vehicle's optimal performance. When something goes wrong, it can be hard to detangle the web and determine the source of the problem. Diagnostic tools make that process a whole lot easier! The technology helps technicians solve check engine light repairs quickly, eliminate guesswork, and give their customers peace of mind. That's why any high-quality auto shop will be using diagnostic equipment!
