Warning Lights Questions and Answers
Q: Why Is My Car's ABS Light On?A: An Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS warning light on your dash indicates something in your car's ABS needs to be checked out by a qualified mechanic. Your ABS is one of your most important safety systems. Do not ignore this warning light. Common issues are:
- Malfunctioning ABS module
- Low levels in the brake fluid reservoir
- Broken speed sensor
- The ABS system is not receiving power
Q: Why does my car keep saying the coolant level is low?A: If a low coolant warning light is on do not continue to drive and go directly to the auto repair shop. It is simple and often inexpensive to fix at Joel's Automotive Repair. Waiting to get the problem resolved can result in high-cost engine repairs. If the low coolant warning light continues to flash on, then there is a leak in the car's cooling system. Coolant fluid can leak in several ways. First, external leaks from radiator hoses, second, connections between hoses, or lastly, from the radiator itself. Your car's radiator cap may leak due to a faulty seal on the cap which can be easily resolved by a specialist at our shop in MontClair.
Q: How do I fix a persistent traction control warning light?
A: Normally, when the traction control light comes on while driving it indicates the car's traction control lost grip or traction going around a sharp curve or while driving on wet pavement. However, sometimes the traction control warning light will come on and stay on.
The best way to determine whether it was just a fluke or a real issue is to shut your vehicle off and turn it back on. If the light is off, then it was likely a temporary malfunction. If the light does not reset, come by Joel's Automotive Repair in MontClair and let us fix it.
Q: What are the main problems that cause a throttle control warning light to come on?A: The five main issues are:
- Irregular or dangerous unintended acceleration
- Intermittent loss of throttle control
- Sudden drop in fuel economy
- Hesitation or stumbling when accelerating.
- Engine stuck unable to accelerate beyond a fast idle.
