Check Engine Light/Service Engine Light

What should I do if my check engine/service engine light comes on?

When your check engine/ service engine light in your BMW, MINI, or Audi comes on, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our team of auto mechanics at Bimmer Rescue. Because of expertise, experience, and equipment, we can quickly identify and accurately fix the issue afflicting your vehicle. Our auto repair shop is located in Richmond but is near Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District.

How do I know Bimmer Rescue can pinpoint my check engine light problem?

At Bimmer Rescue, our A+ factory-trained and qualified master auto mechanics will use the latest technology and diagnostic equipment to read and understand your vehicle’s computerized warning system. After all, today’s cars are mobile computers that just happen to have seats and wheels on them. That’s why it takes more than an auto mechanic to fix them, it makes an expert auto technician, which is what you’ll find at Bimmer Rescue.

When my check engine/service engine light comes on, is it essential to have my vehicle checked right away?

Check engine/ service engine lights can indicate anything for regular maintenance to faulty suspension or worse, so it’s essential to have your BMW, Mini Cooper or Audi checked right away. At Bimmer Rescue, we’ll thoroughly inspect your vehicle, let you know what we find, and with your permission, accurately repair the problem.

What do your Bimmer Rescue customers say about your BMW, MINI, and Audi check engine light service?

BMW, MINI, and Audi drivers throughout Richmond, including Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District trust Bimmer Rescue to deliver exceptional auto repair and fantastic customer service. You should, too! Take a look at this recent five-star review from one of our many satisfied customers:

“Have used Bimmer Rescue for our recently out of warranty 2012 X5 and our newly acquired 1988 325I Convertible. Up front and honest evaluation of both cars and recommendations on things that were "must haves" vs "wants". Fair pricing compared to other places we researched and far better than the dealerships. Quick and easy scheduling service and also provide Uber drop off and pick up convenience. Highly recommend for anyone with an everyday driver or a vintage toy that needs some attention.” -- Patrick L.
