Kia Check Engine Light Scan Service

Raceway Kia of Freehold’s Check Engine Light Diagnosis Service

Anytime a warning light comes on in your car there is cause for concern. It wouldn’t be there if everything was functioning like normal. It can be hard to tell how dire your check engine light is, particularly when there are no other definite symptoms. Luckily, finding out what is causing the check engine light is as simple as scanning the vehicle’s computer which can be done in minutes by one of our qualified Service Department technicians.

What Causes a Check Engine Light?

Your vehicle is equipped with a diagnostic system that is constantly running tests on the vehicle using a variety of sensors. When one of these sensors fail or determines that a component has failed, a warning light will illuminate. The most common warning light is the check engine light, which is red indicating it could be a serious issue. There are other warning lights on your dashboard that may also illuminate like an oil icon indicating it’s time for a Full-Synthetic or Conventional Oil Change Service. Warning lights are color-coded, so you know how important they are. Red lights are typically the most important, while amber lights are of medium importance. Green lights are typically indicators simply telling you a system is functioning.


What is a Diagnostic Service?

Diagnostics on a check engine light start by scanning the vehicle with a code reader or scan tool. The scan will result in a code from the computer that can be deciphered. Once the technician knows what the code is telling them, they have a better idea of what they are looking for, and they can check the sensor or component that the computer indicated was having a problem. The issues are verified, and repairs are can be made from there.

What to do When a Warning Light Turns on

Warning lights can be very serious, or they can be minuscule. You will want to try to reduce your speed and get to an automotive service center as quickly as possible. If the vehicle is showing signs of distress, you will want to get to safety and turn the vehicle off as soon as possible.
