Do you have to stop driving if your check engine light comes on?

There’s nothing worse than finally driving home after a long day and seeing your engine light come on. Depending on where you are and who you’re with at the time, it can be frustrating and scary. Plus, you may not know whether you can continue driving.

If your engine light, or malfunction indicator lamp, appears, it’s because your car’s computer is letting you know there’s a problem. The kind of mechanical issue you have will remain unidentified until you pull codes.
