High-Quality European Auto Check Engine Light Diagnostics

Audi Repair & Service

When the check engine light appears on your dashboard, it is the quickest way to tell you something is wrong and that your drive might need to be halted for a check on your vehicle. Though European automobile technology is improving and alerting drivers to problems sooner, there are still lots of potential problems associated with the check engine light that can be difficult to diagnose. 

While some problems that cause the check engine light are minor, it can also be very unsafe to keep driving when the light is on. Drivers are advised to be cautious and have their vehicles inspected as soon as possible when the light comes on. At Hayes European, we can help drivers all throughout the Santa Cruz area evaluate and repair any check engine light issues quickly and affordably.

  • The gas cap is not sealing properly
  • Catalytic converter failure
  • O2 sensor failure
  • Mass Airflow Sensor failure
  • Old spark plugs

Our information sharing makes it easier for you to be able to participate in every step of the process.
