Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Toni, You cannot turn the check engine light off. The check engine light comes on when one or more sensors in your engine are not working properly. You may not have a problem with your vehicle at this time, but you probably will if you just ignore it. You need to take it to a certified shop or dealership to get it diagnosed. They will need to connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read the code so that they can find the problem. I would strongly recommend that you do not ignore this light. Lori Johnson
