Check Engine Light and Vehicle Diagnostics
When the check engine light turns on, you need to have thorough vehicle diagnostics performed as soon as possible. At Aero Auto Repair, we use a modern digital diagnostics system that sends you a text and email with a full report and any related estimates, providing customers detailed information about their vehicles with the use of notes and high-resolution videos and images. This level of transparency is reassuring to customers, installing the confidence needed to make educated decisions about their vehicles. We will connect our diagnostic scanner to your vehicle and look for any codes that have been stored. These trouble codes will tell us which part of your engine or system is malfunctioning. Your car’s onboard computer system contains valuable data relating to any potential issues with your engine. However, these codes and data must be assessed by a professional mechanic in order to make the right determination.
