The service engine soon light means that there is a minor problem with the electronics or the engine of your car. It could also mean that it is time for a scheduled service, like time for oil or spark plug replacement. Although your car may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems.
Most of us have experienced a dead battery before and everyone would agree that it’s an inconvenience. Battery cables and terminals should be cleaned and inspected periodically as preventive maintenance to make sure they provide a good electrical connection.
No, we can do all of your regular maintenance and service and you keep your manufacturer or dealer warranty intact. However, the dealer must perform factory warranty and recall work. Only the dealer may complete this work at no expense to you. It makes sense you use the dealer when they are paying for the service, or it is “free” work.
