THE “CHECK ENGINE” FAULT INDICATOR: A LIGHT THAT WANTS TO BE SEEN
When you see this indicator appear on your dashboard, you are probably wondering what the problem is. That bright little icon that’s keen to be seen is the Check Engine Light. This useful light draws attention to a variety of anomalies detected by the vehicle’s on-board computer. Don’t stop at the word “engine”: while it is true that this little warning light often signals engine problems, it can also tell you, for example, that the gasoline filler cap is loose.
Can it suddenly turn on while you are riding? Certainly. It may be a minor problem, but you should see a mechanic as soon as possible in order to proceed safely and with peace of mind. A mechanic can make the correct diagnosis and fix the problem.
If the light not only comes on, but also flashes, pull over to the shoulder safely and stop the engine immediately.
