Check Engine Light is on Inspection $79.99 - $99.99 Get a Quote

Hello. Anytime you have a warning or error light illuminate, it’s due to an error code being triggered and stored inside the ECU of your Hyundai. The best way to diagnose exactly why this happening is to have a local mechanic complete a check engine light inspection, so they can download all stored codes and pinpoint what is causing these error lights to flash and the cars difficulty in driving.
