Most drivers experience a sense of fear when they see the service engine light illuminate on the dash. Now they are in a quandary. Should they go straight to an engine repair shop, or is it okay to go on to work or school? Understanding what causes the service engine light to come on can help alleviate some of their fear. The important concern is to make sure that long-term engine damage isn’t taking place that will result in a costly engine repair, and that your vehicle remains safe to drive.

If your vehicle is having starting problems, ask your mechanic to check it out so you know if the problem is with the starter, the battery, or the alternator. In many cases, starting problems are related to a failing alternator. When the alternator goes bad, the electronic accessories try to draw all of their power off the battery, which can cause the battery to die as well. If you see the battery warning light on, get it checked out too If the headlights are dimming, it’s important to schedule a charging system test.

Just what is the alternator, you ask? The alternator (located on the engine), provides power to the battery and continuously charges the battery and the car’s electrical systems and computers. Along with the starter, the battery’s job is to start the car, but the alternator keeps it running.
