Volkswagen Check Engine Light Meaning

Your Volkswagen model has an Engine Control Unit or ECU. This ECU is a computer that makes sure everything in your engine functions the way it should. If the ECU finds that there is a problem causing your engine not to function at its best, it will turn on the check engine light.

What Should I Do if the Check Engine Light Comes On?

If the check engine light in your Volkswagen turns on, it’s time to bring it to an authorized Volkswagen service center to have the code read. When you come to Brooklyn Volkswagen, our technicians will hook your Volkswagen up to a code reader so we can find out the source of the problem. The check engine light isn’t always the sign of an emergency, though this sometimes can be the case. Fortunately, the light itself will often give you clues.

Flashing light: If the light is flashing, there is likely a serious issue with your vehicle. A flashing check engine light usually means that your engine is misfiring. This can damage the catalytic converter, making it necessary to replace it. Because of this, you should pull over and turn off the engine as soon as it is safe for you to do so.

Solid light: This is still important and needs to be addressed as soon as possible, but it’s not an emergency. You can finish driving to your destination before you schedule an appointment. However, before you make an appointment at Brooklyn Volkswagen, it’s a good idea to make sure the gas cap isn’t loose. Many times, a loose gas cap is what trips the check engine light.
