Why is my check engine light on?

Modern Minnesota vehicles have several computers on board that control all kinds of things like engine functions, transmission shifts, traction control, anti-lock brakes, stability control, emissions – and on some vehicles, even steering, braking and the throttle.

Think about that for a minute – things that used to be controlled by simple mechanical connections now have electronic controls that rely on computers, software and sensors. It’s no wonder that when something goes wrong with their car or truck it can be pretty complicated for Minnesota motorists to track down the source of the problem.

To help your Kennedy Transmission Brake & Auto Service service professional figure out what’s wrong, your car or truck is equipped with on-board diagnostics. The Check Engine Light comes on to tell you there’s a problem and the engine management computer stores a trouble code. Your kind and professional Kennedy Transmission Brake & Auto Service service professional connects a scan tool to your vehicle’s diagnostic port and retrieves the trouble codes as well as other important data.

Trouble codes are like clues for the Kennedy Transmission Brake & Auto Service technician to follow as he diagnoses what’s wrong with your car or truck. In a way, it’s like going to your Minnesota doctor with a problem. She’ll run some additional tests and gather the information she needs to make a diagnosis and form a treatment plan. How much a vehicle diagnosis costs at Kennedy Transmission Brake & Auto Service in Minnesota depends on how much time it takes to sort out the symptoms and find the underlying problem.
