Our cars today are equipped with powerful computers and sensors that are capable of detecting almost every problem inside the car, which helps our expert technicians diagnose exactly what's wrong with your car quickly and easily.
However, all of those indicators on your dashboard can be scary and make you panic if you don't know what they mean.
Below is our guide to help you understand what those indicators mean, and what to do when they turn on.
The check engine light can be scary, but it's important to know that when this light turns on it is not an emergency. Your car will be able to continue running, and you do not need to panic.
There are a number of reasons why your check engine like may come on. The first and most common reason is a problem with your car's gas cap. If your gas cap is unscrewed, left loose or faulty this can cause the check engine light to turn on. So this should be the first thing to check.
If your gas cap appears to be fine then your check engine like is probably on for another reason, which may range anywhere from a faulty ignition coil, a failing catalytic converter, or a worn out spark plug. If you don't know what any of those are that's fine. Your car is not about to self-destruct! It does mean that you should have your car looked at and diagnosed by an expert Toyota Technician as soon as you can.
