Don’t Ignore Engine Management Lights

Occasionally, a light will appear on your dashboard. These lights are in place to warn you when there is a problem with the vehicle, such as there being a problem with the oil pressure or that the washer fluid needs replacing. However, one of these lights seems to cause more concern among drivers than others and that’s the engine management light. This appears when there is a problem with the engine control unit and it highlights when something isn’t quite right.


What Does the Engine Management Light Mean?

If you have been driving for a number of years, you may have seen the engine management light appear on the dashboard of your vehicle. However, the chances are you weren’t sure why it was showing or how to fix the issue. Luckily, you’re not alone and a lot of people don’t know too much about the engine lights on their dashboard. Though there are specific lights for specific problems, the engine management light covers a lot more. When the engine management light appears, it’s not the end of the world and there’s no need to stress out immediately. After all, the problem could be minor. Some of the common reasons for the engine management light to appear are:


  • An Emissions System Fault
  • A Fault With the Mass Airflow Sensor
  • An Ignition System Fault
  • A Loose Petrol or Diesel Cap


However, there are also other reasons for the engine management light to appear. This is why it’s so difficult to know initially what’s causing the problem and whether or not it’s serious. When the engine management light appears, it’s best to seek the help of a professional. By doing so, the problem can be fixed quickly and effectively.

Hardings did a terrific job on my exhaust. The customer service at the garage was brilliant.

I brought my BMW here a number of times now, so my feedback is based on a cumulative experience, not just one-off. There are standard car services out there - you know, the ones which will try to do a minimum work to "cover" issue symptoms, get paid and move on to a next customer. And there is Mike Harding's one. Who always strives to resolve the problem entirely, not just to cover it up. Who provides a detailed report with empirically proven underlying cause and steps taken to rectify it. Do you want to pay less... but a few times? Choose other service. Do you want to pay a fair price once and really forget about your problem for good? I suggest you speak with Mike.

I cannot fault the fantastic team at Harding Auto Services! I needed some major repair work done on my Landrover Defender and they were helpful and kept up communication the entire time (my vehicle was with them for approximately two weeks). When it came to specifing what work needed to be done and the overall cost they were completely transparent so there were no "nasty surprises" when the job was finished. They obviously know what they are doing with classic Landrovers and I will 100% recommend them to anyone!
