One of the most common (and frustrating) automobile malfunctions reported in lemon law cases is repeated, chronic check engine light problems. If your automobile’s check engine warning light keeps coming on – and the car dealership and the vehicle’s manufacturer just can’t seem to repair the problem – the good news is that you may qualify for relief under California’s lemon law. Check engine light cases are typically clear cut and strongest lemon law claims. Therefore, if your vehicle is suffering from this type of defect, and has been subject to three or more unsuccessful repair attempts, then you should contact a qualified attorney to discuss your legal options.

What Causes Check Engine Light Problems?
Check engine lights are designed to monitor and warn you about a number of highly complex problems that can affect your automobile’s engine. Indeed, the fact that there are so many potential causes for the check engine light to illuminate can make it one of the most troublesome and frustrating lemon law problems.
That being said, your vehicle’s mechanic should be able to download the codes that ostensibly caused the check engine warning light to illuminate, so that he can properly repair the malfunction. The five most common reasons why an automobile’s check engine light flashes are (1) a faulty oxygen sensor, (2) a faulty or loose gas cap, (3) a malfunctioning catalytic converter, (4) a defective mass airflow sensor, and (5) problems with the spark plugs and wiring.
There are other potential malfunctions that can cause a check engine light to go off, many of which are very serious. That is why all manufacturers recommend that you immediately take your vehicle to a mechanic if and when its check engine light goes off.
