WARNING - Light is on, what do you do?

A light on the dash that doesn't say - washer fluid is low immediately panics you right?  It can happen when you don't keep up with standard maintenance and with older vehicles you see it due to the age of the vehicle, however here at Automotive City in Grass Valley we like to keep you driving happy and listening to your favorite songs or talking to friends and family worry-free!  Here are some quick tips and hard lines in the sand that you do not need to ignore.

FIRST TIP:  Do not ignore a warning light.  However, first line of defense is to stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe and then turn the engine off - wait a few minutes then turn it back on.  If the light is still there - get your manual out to see what the light means (or Google it).

This shop is excellent and honest.

This shop is excellent and honest. They have kept my cars and truck on the road for several years. I needed to buy a car for my daughter, they do a full diagnostic free of charge and told me one car don't buy, too much to repair for the money, the second car checked out and did these as a value added service. Ken and Spencer are prompt, straight forward, common sense, and honest. - Rich B.
