Warning Lights Questions and Answers
Q: Why does my car keep saying the coolant level is low?A: If a low coolant warning light is on do not continue to drive and go directly to the auto repair shop. It is simple and often inexpensive to fix at Jerry Dixon's Automotive & Klassic Kar Center, Inc.. Waiting to get the problem resolved can result in high-cost engine repairs. If the low coolant warning light continues to flash on, then there is a leak in the car's cooling system. Coolant fluid can leak in several ways. First, external leaks from radiator hoses, second, connections between hoses, or lastly, from the radiator itself. Your car's radiator cap may leak due to a faulty seal on the cap which can be easily resolved by a specialist at our shop in Austin.
Q: Why Is My Car's ABS Light On?A: An Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS warning light on your dash indicates something in your car's ABS needs to be checked out by a qualified mechanic. Your ABS is one of your most important safety systems. Do not ignore this warning light. Common issues are:
- Malfunctioning ABS module
- Low levels in the brake fluid reservoir
- Broken speed sensor
- The ABS system is not receiving power
Q: How do I fix a persistent traction control warning light?
A: Normally, when the traction control light comes on while driving it indicates the car's traction control lost grip or traction going around a sharp curve or while driving on wet pavement. However, sometimes the traction control warning light will come on and stay on.
The best way to determine whether it was just a fluke or a real issue is to shut your vehicle off and turn it back on. If the light is off, then it was likely a temporary malfunction. If the light does not reset, come by Jerry Dixon's Automotive & Klassic Kar Center, Inc. in Austin and let us fix it.
Q: Why is my throttle control warning light on?A: The connection between the gas pedal and acceleration is controlled by your car's throttle. The amount of acceleration or throttle control is governed by a sophisticated computer system. Any disruption of the electrical signals will affect your vehicle's acceleration and cause the throttle control warning light to come on. If your throttle control light comes on go directly to Jerry Dixon's Automotive & Klassic Kar Center, Inc. in Austin.
Q: What are the main problems that cause a throttle control warning light to come on?A: The five main issues are:
- Irregular or dangerous unintended acceleration
- Intermittent loss of throttle control
- Sudden drop in fuel economy
- Hesitation or stumbling when accelerating.
- Engine stuck unable to accelerate beyond a fast idle.
Q: Can I drive with the throttle control light on?A: No, unwanted acceleration may occur and cause an accident. Go straight to the repair shop. There can be many different causes for the throttle control warning light, many are simple fixes.
Service way above and beyond. They came in on a Sunday to receive my 1930 Buick from the shipper even though they're closed on Sunday. They fixed my car the very next day because it was an "easy" fix and they wanted such a valuable car returned to me expediently. It started right up. The repair seemed a little expensive, but maybe things are just more expensive in Austin. Next, they drove me back from the storage facility. Then they helped me lift a heavy load. See what I mean about above and beyond? I'd recommend them with your beloved vehicle too.
Really too notch place for your vintage vehicle. Family-owned from forever ago, and stocked with ace gearheads who love to breathe life into old things. Took my 1972 Ranger there and got a thorough and honest assessment of my needs, along with straight up pricing. When I went to pick it up, Steve walked me through what he had done and gave me a primer on how to love and care for the truck. Essentially he schooled this newbie on stuff like manual chokes and carburetors and exactly how amazing the thing I bought actually was. The very best option around Austin for bringing a classic back to life.
My girlfriend suggested that I take my 2001 Ford Expedition to Jerry Dixon's and I have never been happier about anyplace that has ever worked on any of my cars, ever... If I could give them 10 stars, I would.
