If you’ve ever had your check engine light go on in Beckley, it can be a little bit scary if you don’t know what to do. Learn more about your Mercedes-Benz check engine light below, and if your light is on now, take a look at our current service specials before scheduling your next service appointment!

What it Means

The check engine light is illuminated when your Mercedes-Benz detects an issue within its onboard diagnostics (OBD) system, and could mean one of the problems below (but not limited to these):

  • Faulty fuel injector
  • Worn out spark plugs and wiring
  • Emission control system malfunction
  • Loose gas cap

What to Do

  • Find a certified Mercedes-Benz service center.
  • Take your vehicle in whenever possible–the problem may worsen the longer the vehicle is driven without service.

If you notice another alert on your dash in addition to the check engine light, such as a low oil pressure, pull over safely as soon as possible, and shut off the engine.
