If you drive a Honda vehicle, chances are you’ve noticed the “check engine” or “maintenance required” light come on before. Sometimes it will flash upon cranking your vehicle, while other times it will remain on when the engine is running. Unfortunately, most drivers have no clue what these lights stand for, creating confusion among Honda owners. Driving around with this light on could be a sign of serious trouble, or it could be quick fix.
One of the most common reasons why the “check engine” light comes on in Honda vehicles is due to a faulty or damaged gas cap. If the cap isn’t fully tightened after gassing up at the pump, Honda’s internal system may notice this problem and trigger the light to come on in response. Cracked or broken gas caps will also trigger the “check engine” light, as fumes will escape from the fuel tank and throw pressure off balance.
A broken or damaged gas cap may also cause your Honda vehicle to fail an emissions test. Even if everything else with your vehicle is perfectly find and running smoothly, something as simple as a faulty gas cap could throw your emissions off, causing you to fail the test.
Some of the other reasons why the “check engine” light may flick on in a Honda car or truck include a malfunctioning catalytic convertor, worn spark plugs, rusted wiring or various problems with the vehicle’s internal gauges. The good news is that a simple diagnostic test at our service center in Chino Valley, AZ will reveal what’s causing the light.
Our experienced team of automotive professionals are also fully trained to perform scheduled maintenance for Honda cars and trucks. To determine when your vehicle requires routine maintenance, browse through the owner’s manual. It should contain information regarding inspections, maintenance and repairs.
