A check engine light diagnosis can tell you everything about what's wrong with your vehicle, making it important to invest in one as soon as the light appears.


Check Engine Light 101

When you first start your Volkswagen, you'll see an orange engine icon flash briefly on the instrument cluster. That's the check engine light to alert you to a problem. Under normal operation and with proper maintenance, this is the only time you should see your check engine light. If your Volkswagen's onboard diagnostics system detects an issue, it'll trigger the check engine light and store a unique "trouble code" our technicians can later retrieve using specialized diagnostic equipment.

Common Check Engine Light Issues

Have a check engine light on your VW's dashboard? Our Volkswagen check engine light diagnosis can uncover many of the following issues, including:

  • Loose gas cap
  • Oxygen sensor failure
  • Catalytic converter failure
  • Misfires caused by bad spark plugs or coil packs
  • Faulty mass airflow sensor
  • Vacuum leaks
  • Dead or defective car battery
  • Steady vs. Flashing Check Engine Light

Depending on what triggers your Volkswagen check engine light, it may appear as a solid light or one that flashes repeatedly. The difference between a solid and a flashing check engine light can mean the difference between a minor checkup or significant repairs:

  • If the check engine light remains solidly illuminated, then the trigger is likely a minor issue with no immediate urgency.
  • If the check engine light appears and flashes constantly, then bring your vehicle over to White Allen Volkswagen soon. A flashing check engine light usually indicates a misfire, overheating issues, or a serious mechanical or electrical fault.
