Check Engine Light
Did your check engine light come on? Don't worry, just head to the Service Department at Midway Ford and we would be happy to help. Schedule an appointment by phone or online!
How much does it cost?
Diagnosis of a check engine light costs $129.95.* After we diagnose the cause of the check engine light, we will provide an estimated cost to perform the repair.
What services are included in the diagnosis of a Check Engine Light?
Our Ford-certified technicians will inspect your vehicle, determine the cause of the check engine light, and provide you with a quote to repair the vehicle.
What if I pay for diagnosis but decline the repair?
Our diagnosis is good for 90 days after the date of the invoice. So if you pay the $129.95 for diagnosis of a check engine light but decline to have the vehicle repaired, as long as you return within 90 days, you would not have to pay for diagnosis again.
What causes the check engine light to come on?
There are tons of things that can cause the check engine light to come on - from something as simple as a loose gas cap to something as serious as a cracked intake manifold gasket. We recommend you just bring your vehicle to our Service Department so our specialists can determine the cause.
I have a warranty but it's not a Ford warranty - can I use it at your dealership?
Yes, you can use your after-market warranty at Midway Ford. Just make sure to bring the warranty information with you because we can't look it up.
Is it OK to drive my vehicle with the check engine light on?
If the check engine light is flashing, you should stop driving immediately and have your vehicle towed to us. A flashing check engine light is a warning that the catalytic converter (very expensive part) is currently being damaged. If the check engine light is not flashing but you are hearing weird noises or the vehicle is driving funny, then we recommend you stop driving and have the vehicle towed. If the check engine light is not flashing, then it should be OK to drive the vehicle but we still recommend bringing it our Service Department so that we can determine the cause.
