When there is an issue with your vehicle, there are certain devices built in to a vehicle in order to monitor things are not running correctly. Since there are computers in each vehicle, it can be used for your benefit to find out when there is something wrong with it. That is why diagnostic codes were created. By bringing in your vehicle, we can hook it up to a device that plugs in to the cords from the computer, which are behind the steering column. This way we can find out what might be causing the issue with your vehicle. If you notice a light illuminating on your dashboard, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as you can. If the light is blinking, pull over when it is safe to do so and turn off your vehicle to prevent further issues.
The diagnostic codes can signal trouble with a component of the engine. The codes can monitor everything under your hood, from when an air intake valve is getting clogged to when a filter is getting too dirty to function properly. The codes will likely signal a problem before it is major and causes you a breakdown on the side of the road. It is important to not ignore the light on your dashboard. Ignoring the lights could mean trouble, because you never know when a diagnostic code will reveal a larger problem within the vehicle or the exhaust system.
To help keep the vehicle in good working condition, make sure that it is brought in for regular maintenances. This helps the vehicle to run at top performance levels.
