The “Check Engine” light can mean something as simple as a poorly fitting gas cap or faulty sensor, or it can mean a serious engine problem such as a malfunctioning electronic throttle control (ETC) unit, which indicates that you are in danger of stalling. Dealerships have a responsibility to find and solve the problem or to replace the vehicle if it is still under warranty. Engine light problems can be very elusive. Your check engine light may come on and stay on, or it may be come on intermittently. It may be caused by a relatively harmless problem, but it could be caused by something very dangerous that will put you and your passengers at risk. If you have been seriously injured in an avoidable auto accident caused by defective engine lights you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages.
