Onboard Diagnostics and Check Engine Lights

Ford engineers vehicles with an onboard diagnostic system that continuously monitors air, fluids, voltage, temperatures, and more within primary systems. The check engine light activates on the dashboard when an onboard diagnostic system’s sensor detects a problem. Further investigation is necessary to know the specific problem, risk, and how to fix it.

Solid Versus Flashing Check Engine Lights

Check engine lights are usually solid but can be flashing. Solid check engine lights demonstrate that a minor problem has been detected with reduced risk of significant damage and is typically indicative of less costly repairs. Flashing check engine lights are another story as they indicate more severe issues with increased risk of catastrophic damage and more costly repairs. Ford does not recommend driving with a flashing check engine light; rather, pull your vehicle into a safe position as soon as possible and have your vehicle towed to Porter Ford.

Certified Ford Check Engine Light Diagnosis Service

Getting a certified Ford check engine light diagnosis service ensures accurate results and efficient repairs. A certified technician starts by extracting the check engine light trouble code using specialized equipment from the onboard diagnostic system’s computer. The certified technician uses the trouble code to perform an inspection that confirms the problem, laying the investigative groundwork for the repair necessary to eliminate the risk while turning the check engine light off.
