Hooniverse Asks: Do You Drive Around With a Perennially Lit Warning Lamp?

checkeng The word check seems somewhat antiquated these days. I mean, when was the last time you actually saw someone write one? That’s perhaps why the standard “check engine” warning light doesn’t carry the kind of impending doom weight it once did. “Check engine.” Yeah, I did, it’s still there. They don’t call the little illuminated warnings on your dashboard idiot lights for nothing. You’d have to be an idiot to pay attention to them, amiright? ABS, tire pressure, zombie invasion, there’s just too many to keep track of these days. That’s why no one is going to call you out for driving around with your dash lit up like a Christmas tree all the time. Okay, all joking aside, sometimes a check engine or other warning light is an indication of a less than imminent chance of failure. In those cases, it’s probably alright to let it slide for a while. Have you ever had a car with a warning light illuminated that made you think; meh, I’ll get to that one of these days?
