The check engine light can be a scary sight – but don’t fret as the cause is not always a serious problem. Many BMWs, Porsche, Mercedes and other newer vehicles will turn on the check engine light for something as simple as a loose gas cap. So the first thing you should check is that your gas cap is tight ( give it a turn for a few clicks ). Many reasons for the check engine light are not caused by anything disastrous and nat not indicate an urgent emergency. However you should have your vehicle diagnosed as soon as you are able, to determine the cause of the problem.
