When the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light in your vehicle's instrument cluster comes on, there is no need to panic. These warnings indicate that your automobile's computer system has detected a problem in one of the various systems that it controls and monitors. In some cases, the sensors used to optimize performance, emissions, and mileage may detect a problem that triggers the vehicle to go into "limpmode." If so, it will become readily apparent to the driver that the vehicle needs immediate service. Fortunately, an auto technician can make short work of diagnosing the problem by utilizing an instrument known as an OBD11 trouble code reader, which plugs into the computer system and identifies the problem.
