Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my check engine light on?
The check engine light in a modern vehicle is an indication that the car’s computer has detected an issue with one of the hundreds of subsystems that make your car run. This tells a technician that additional information needs to be gathered by a highly trained professional using the industry’s latest technology. If your check engine light is on, we suggest bringing your vehicle to your local AAMCO repair shop for a full diagnosis of the issue.
Can’t I just use an OBD-II Code Reader from my friend or local auto parts store?
Our customers often ask us why they should have their car diagnosed by the AAMCO experts, when they can just use an OBD-II code reader at their house or a local auto parts store. The answer is simple: expertise. The OBD-II code provides valuable information about which system in particular is causing an issue, but it does not tell the whole story about exactly what the problem is, why there is an issue, and how it can be fixed.
As an example, when you turn on a light switch and the light doesn’t come on, you know that the light isn’t working, but you don’t know whether it’s just a dead light bulb, a problem with the switch, a bad wire, or a power outage. Your car presents the same problem, but it is much, much more complex. That’s why we recommend getting the opinion of an expert!
