At Volkswagen of Kingston, we are highly experienced at checking engine light diagnosis in all Volkswagen models. We also welcome other makes and models for check engine light diagnosis at our state-of-the-art facility. We are located in Kingston, NY, not far from Red Hook, Hurley, Rhinebeck, and Saugerties, NY. It can be unnerving to see an illuminated check engine light in your vehicle, but there is no need to worry when you have a Volkswagen of Kingston near you. Not only can we find the trigger of the check engine light, but we can also fix the issue. If your vehicle requires new parts, we carry certified OEM Volkswagen auto parts at our facility.
Your Volkswagen vehicle is equipped with an onboard diagnostic system that monitors different systems and components of the vehicle. The check engine light is linked to some of the components such as the fuel cap, catalytic converter, mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensor, battery, engine, and more. If your vehicle’s computer detects a fault with one or more of the linked components, it alerts you by illuminating the check engine light. The check engine light is shaped like a motor and is typically colored orange or amber. It can either be steady or flashing, which is a sign that there is a problem with the vehicle that requires urgent attention.
Whether the check engine light is steady or flashing, we recommend you don’t delay getting the issue diagnosed. At Volkswagen of Kingston, we have professional-grade tools designed for check engine light diagnosis. Using computerized technology, we will be able to pinpoint the problem with the vehicle. Once the issue has been identified, we will fix it and reset the check engine light. Keep in mind that the check engine light can illuminate temporarily when you switch on the vehicle. The vehicle does this to check if all the circuits are working properly. The check engine light should switch off, but if it doesn’t, you need to get a diagnosis service at the nearest authorized service center.
