Check Engine Light Repairs

Check Engine Light Repairs In Hendersonville, Tennessee

Check Engine LightMercedes Benz used mechanical fuel injection systems during World War II but first used an electronic fuel injection known as D-Jetronic designed and licensed by Bosch in 1967. Volkwagen followed suit the next year in 1968 by using Air Flow Controlled Electronic Fuel Injection units, (AFC) which were also D-jetronic systems in the type 3 series and Volkswagen installed the first on board diagnotic system the same year. All of the early fuel injection systems used all white wiring systems to prevent customers from attempting to work on the fuel injection themselves. It worked really well. Most customers and independent auto repair shops replaced the fuel injection systems with carburetor kits as soon as the fuel injection malfunctioned. Good technicians could repair the fuel injection units without scan tools, trouble codes, check engine lights, or the Internet to help them. Repairing these systems made us better technicians.

GM started installing Assembly Line Data Connectors, (ALDL) in 1980. We learned to repair just what the problem was and we didn’t have to rip the system out and put carburetors in because we couldn't figure out the systems. The California Air Resources Board required all vehicles that were sold in the State of California had to have an on board dignostic system in 1991. Every car manufacturer installed a connector but every system was different and most small shops could not afford all of the assorted connectors for all of the cars. In 1996 the regulations were changed and all cars were required to use a standardized plug for all cars to make it cheaper for independent auto repair shops to afford tools to read the systems. The new standard was called OBD2. Part of this system was that a “Check Engine” light be present in all cars sold in the united States to let clients and state testing facilities know when the computer recognized a fault which could cause the vehicle to malfunction.
