What Does the Check Engine Light Mean?

The Check Engine Light is connected to the Engine Control Unit or ECU. The ECU is a computer that uses various sensors to keep track of your vehicle’s performance and emissions. If one of these sensors gives the ECU a different reading than it should, the ECU will then turn on the Check Engine Light.

What Should I Do When the Check Engine Light Comes On?

In addition to turning on the Check Engine Light, the ECU will also store a code that will need to be read by a code reader. We have this tool at Allen Samuels Volkswagen. If the Check Engine Light comes on in your VW, you should schedule a service appointment. If the light is solid, it’s likely not an emergency — but it can still affect your vehicle’s emissions and performance, and so should be taken care of soon.

If the Check Engine Light is flashing, however, you should react somewhat differently. A flashing Check Engine Light usually means that the engine is misfiring, which can cause your vehicle’s catalytic converter to be damaged or destroyed. In cases like these, you should pull over as soon as you can do so safely and shut down the engine.

What Could Cause the Check Engine Light To Turn On?

The Check Engine Light may turn on for several different reasons. While this is not an exhaustive list, some of the most likely causes include problems with the following:

  • O2 Sensor
  • Thermostat
  • Spark Plugs
  • Mass Airflow Sensor
  • EGR Valve
  • Fuel Cap
