Is Your Check Engine Light On?

Your engine is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. If you are hearing odd noises such as squeaks, squeals, clunks, or bangs when you drive your car, it's likely that your vehicle is in desperate need of engine diagnostics. Bring your vehicle into Ernie's Automotive, and we will pinpoint the source of the problem and fix your vehicle quickly.

Whether you are hearing odd noises or the Check Engine light has come on, a professional diagnostic scan of your vehicle's electronic system is the only way to get to the heart of the problem. Ernie's Automotive in Bonney Lake is your local expert specializing in accurate engine diagnostics.

We have an extensive line of state of the art diagnostic equipment and software for computerized vehicles. If the "check engine" light is on, first thing we will do is hook up our equipment to your vehicle. Next, we will pull the trouble codes and process the engine diagnostics. And finally, we will target the issue and fix your vehicle.

Here at Ernie's Automotive, we perform Professional Diagnostic Scanning, which sets us apart from the other auto repair shops that offer engine diagnostics. Professional Diagnostic Scanning reads circuit-specific data from each onboard system. This is a vast improvement from only reading and resetting basic trouble codes.

The downside of basic code retrieval is that it isn't specific enough. It's like reading the Cliff Notes of a book instead of reading the book from cover to cover. If the cause of the issue isn't coming from a faulty part, basic code retrieval simply isn't able to offer enough information to accurately fix your vehicle. Additionally, basic code retrieval often clears codes improperly. This means that there's a high probability that the same code will return, causing the Check Engine light to light up again.

We pride ourselves on offering Professional Diagnostic Scanning because of the many superior benefits it offers for our customers. Proffessional Diagnostic Scanning gathers readings from all possible sources in your vehicle. This assists our skillful technicians in pinpointing what is actually going wrong in your car, whether it's a faulty part of wiring that needs to be replaced. The detail the Professional Diagnostic Scanning provides shortens the amount of time your vehicle is in our shop and provides greater savings to you as well!

With the Professional Vehicle Diagnostic Scanning services that Ernie's Automotive provides, the true cause of your issue will be determined quickly. Once our technicians have repaired your vehicle, they will clear all the codes and your check engine light will stay off.
