Today’s vehicles are manufactured with complex interrelated systems. If a warning light comes on, it’s because the computer has sensed a signal from one of the systems or components that has gone outside of its normal operating range and needs attention.
The probable causes for a warning light on your dashboard can range from an improperly tightened gas cap, to engine, transmission or braking system performance issues. While dashboard lights can stay on without any obvious signs of an ongoing issue, ignoring some lights can lead to serious problems, such as engine damage or other components failures. In some instances, this can be a safety hazard for you and other drivers. That’s why it is recommended to have your car looked at by a certified professional as soon as possible for both your safety and peace of mind.
