Light came on, what do you do?

If you get scared when you see this light come on, on your dashboard, you are not alone. A burning 'check engine' light indicates that there is an issue somewhere in the car that should be resolved. It could mean the gas cap is off, or that the engine is misfiring. When you see this light come on, call Tequesta Tire as soon as possible so we can take a look at what is going on.

  • Loose or failing gas cap
  • Poor run ability
  • Misfiring
