Vehicle Performance Light Meanings & What To Do

Your vehicle relies on many different components to run, so when one of those components isn't working as it should, a light will typically show up on your dashboard. This could be anything from a generic Check Engine light to a Brake System light. These lights usually mean your vehicle should be serviced or inspected as soon as possible to avoid further damage or a disabled vehicle all together. On this section of the page we go over each of the following lights:

-Check Engine Light
