This mechanic's tablet is used to read the fault code in the car's computer that triggers a check engine light.
How Often Do I Need A Car Fault Code Checked?
This can be a tricky question. Mechanics are required to assess check engine lights as part of every annual emissions inspection, but if you have a check engine light come on in your dashboard on it's own though, be sure to have the code read as quickly as possible to avoid any damage. We’re always happy to fit customers into our schedule if they suspect a problem and need a fault code checked.
