The Check Engine Light is on – Now What?

As you can see, a check engine light can point to a variety of issues. While you can buy a check engine light scanner or go to an auto parts store and have them read your codes, this simply doesn’t get to the heart of the problem. These codes only point to the system and area that triggered the light.

By coming to Independent Auto Care in Parker, we can dig deeper and pinpoint the exact cause of your check engine light using the right equipment for your Honda, Acura or Mini. Once we figure out exactly what’s going on, our ASE certified mechanics will then put together a repair plan and estimate for you to review. With your approval, we’ll then get your car fixed and back into optimal condition.
