Check Engine Light Diagnostics in Ardsley, New York

One Light, Many Potential Underlying Causes

What to Do

If your vehicle’s check engine light has illuminated, perhaps you’re wondering what to do. When the light is steady and solid (after the initial blinking that’s typical for many autos during start-up), it’s safe to drive a reasonable distance to reach our shop. Your car needs attention, but your situation is not an emergency. (In the rare case that the light is flashing, stop driving immediately and have your vehicle towed to our shop. Otherwise, your auto is in danger of catastrophic engine failure.) Once your car reaches Ardsley Motors in Ardsley, New York, one of our ASE-certified technicians will perform check engine light diagnostics. This will yield a universal trouble code, part of a system that has been mandated on all new cars sold in the United States since 1996. Combined with our expertise, the code will help us identify and repair the exact underlying cause. See us for help with other dashboard indicators, too. You’ll find us conveniently located at 555 Saw Mill River Road, Ardsley, NY 10502, United States (near I-87 and the Saw Mill River Parkway). Making an appointment is simple, too.
