Car Problem Diagnosis for Dashboard Lights

Categories: DIY Auto Tips, Instrument Clusters (ICP)

Many drivers will experience the annoyance of a dashboard warning light at some point. There are many drivers that have no idea what each of the warning light icons actually mean. You are minding your own business, driving along and “DING”, a little light suddenly lights up on your dashboard. Do you know what the icon stands for, and if you do, do you know what possible issues it could be indicating? Instead of playing a guessing game with your car’s safety, it’s important to have your car checked and diagnosed for any issues that your dashboard light is warning you about.

The Cost of Dashboard Lights

Dashboard lights help to alert the driver that the car’s ECU (Engine Control Unit) or ABS (Antilock Brake System) module recognizes a problem with one or more parts of your vehicle. Similar to the when the gas light alerts a driver when the tank is low, these other dashboard lights are designed to help you maintain your vehicle to the best of your ability for a safe driving environment. Unfortunately, many dealerships will charge high prices and labor costs just to have your car diagnosed, plus additional fees for the actual repairs needed to address the problem. To avoid high dealership costs, turn to the expert auto technicians at UpFix.
