Warning Lights Questions and Answers

Q: Why does my car keep saying the coolant level is low?
A: If a low coolant warning light is on do not continue to drive and go directly to the auto repair shop. It is simple and often inexpensive to fix at Auto Performance Center. Waiting to get the problem resolved can result in high-cost engine repairs. If the low coolant warning light continues to flash on, then there is a leak in the car's cooling system. Coolant fluid can leak in several ways. First, external leaks from radiator hoses, second, connections between hoses, or lastly, from the radiator itself. Your car's radiator cap may leak due to a faulty seal on the cap which can be easily resolved by a specialist at our shop in Garner.

Q: Why Is My Car's ABS Light On?
A: An Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS warning light on your dash indicates something in your car's ABS needs to be checked out by a qualified mechanic. Your ABS is one of your most important safety systems. Do not ignore this warning light. Common issues are:
  1. Malfunctioning ABS module
  2. Low levels in the brake fluid reservoir
  3. Broken speed sensor
  4. The ABS system is not receiving power
Q: How do I fix a persistent traction control warning light?

A: Normally, when the traction control light comes on while driving it indicates the car's traction control lost grip or traction going around a sharp curve or while driving on wet pavement. However, sometimes the traction control warning light will come on and stay on.

The best way to determine whether it was just a fluke or a real issue is to shut your vehicle off and turn it back on. If the light is off, then it was likely a temporary malfunction. If the light does not reset, come by Auto Performance Center in Garner and let us fix it.

Q: Why is my throttle control warning light on?
A: The connection between the gas pedal and acceleration is controlled by your car's throttle. The amount of acceleration or throttle control is governed by a sophisticated computer system. Any disruption of the electrical signals will affect your vehicle's acceleration and cause the throttle control warning light to come on.

I needed body work done on my pickup truck. I spoke with Mr. Ward regarding estimates. Their prices were very fair, and I authorized the work. My particular repairs required paint work; body work; and some mechanical work. The finished product was excellent! Additionally, both Mr. Ward and Mya (from the office) kept in touch with me throughout the process, with updates and answers to my questions. They were both so friendly, quick, and competent! I will definitely be back should I need auto body repair, and I would happily recommend their shop to anyone!quotes-image
