Northern VA Vehicle Diagnostics

The vehicle dashboard check engine warning lights are your car’s way of sharing vital information about the performance of your vehicles systems.

  • If one of the vehicle warning lights burns amber and stays on after you’ve started the engine, it’s time to bring your vehicle in to run some vehicle diagnostics.  Sometimes, the warning is just alerting you about a car system sensor that needs to be replaced or a loose wire.  To be positive, make sure it’s inspected by a vehicle diagnostic expert as soon as possible. 
  • Any red flashing lights often indicate a catastrophic failure, and this is when it’s advised to immediate stop the engine and have your vehicle towed to one of Craftsman Auto Care’s locations for a full vehicle digital health inspection.
