Albert Lea Check Engine Light Service

The CEL (Check Engine Light) is a vital component of your vehicles OBD (Onboard Diagnostic) system. The dash light turns on when the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) determines that there is a condition that will affect the emissions output of the vehicle. You can see the light illuminated in two ways, it can come on and stay on steady or it will come on and flash. When the light is on steady the OBD system is alerting you of a problem, and it should be looked at as soon as possible. When the light is on and flashing it means there is a greater and more immediate problem. Stop driving the car and get it inspected immediately! Failure to do so can cause damage to the catalytic converter damage or worse. It can change a repair of a few hundred dollars to a repair of several thousand dollars.
