Your "Check Engine" light isn't your vehicle's way of trying to annoy you. It's trying to say you have a small problem that could turn into a big, bad problem if you don't check it out now!" If you think about it, having your "Check Engine" light come on is an opportunity to be proactive about your vehicle's care, and save money in the long run. We could all use a little prodding to do that!


Let Aarons Advanced Automotive run a diagnostic on your vehicle. Once we recognize the symptom, we'll be well on our way to finding the culprit.
