Short answer: Yes! They are there to let you know something is wrong. Modern automobiles use more computers and sensors than ever before. One reason is for all the features we have become accustomed to. Another reason is to try to maximize the efficiency of your engine to reduce our carbon footprint.
Features like accident avoidance, self-driving, and hybrid drive systems are just a few of the advanced features that require a lot of sensors and computers. Automobiles have been using sensors and basic computers since the 1990s. Back then, a check engine light meant you had engine trouble or a sensor had failed.
Nowadays, a warning light could indicate an issue in any part of the car. Luckily, computers and software have advanced, and the systems and sensors have become more reliable. When a warning light comes on, it is vital you get it diagnosed as soon as possible.
The downside of all these advancements is how much our technicians have to learn just to be able to diagnose and repair modern automobiles. Every day, new equipment is released to help technicians, but their job remains difficult. Not to mention how expensive the diagnostic tools have become.
That is why we employ the best technicians and help them continue their education to attain their automotive certifications. As well as investing in the latest technology to help them succeed and give you the best service possible.
