What Is It, Anyway?
If you’ve been driving long, you’ve heard of the check engine light. Maybe you’ve even seen it illuminate in your own car. While you recognize this as a prompting for automotive service, perhaps you’re wondering exactly what the check engine light is. The ASE-certified technicians at Pit Stop in Sarasota, Florida, are glad to explain more about the malfunctioning indicator lamp.

In addition, this second-generation system (Onboard Diagnostic II or OBD-II) provides universal trouble codes (as opposed to brand-specific indicators) that help mechanics know what is wrong with your car.
