Mysteries Solved: Accurate CEL Diagnosis

The Purpose

If you’re feeling frustrated about your car’s check engine light, perhaps you’re wondering why your vehicle even has the warning lamp. The truth is it’s a federal mandate on all new cars sold in the United States beginning in 1996. It’s a feature of the second-generation onboard diagnostic system or OBD-II. This system is designed to provide a universal trouble code for similar issues regardless of make or model, with the ultimate goal of limiting the amount of harmful emissions released into the atmosphere.
