Headlight Warning System

Whether its Porsche Dynamic Lighting system, Audi's Dynamic headlight Range Control, Or BMW's Adaptive Headlight Control System. They are all somewhat similar.

These days headlights are much more complicated with systems that move the headlights as you turn the steering wheel to an onboard diagnostic system that checks light bulbs to warn you if one is out, as well as different types of lighting systems for brighter light, much more electrical parts and a lot are going digital with computers in the headlight assembly which communicate with your steering wheel sensors, suspension sensors or computer  and accessory computer in the vehicle . If this fault comes up it could be any one of those sensors failing. If the lights are working but this light has come on the dash we will have to do a diagnostic check to see what is going on. All what will happen is the lights will not be moving with your steering wheel or suspension. Book an appointment here or call us at 604.980 7413.

 
Automatic Gearbox Fault

If this light comes on in your dash there is a problem with your transmission or the electronics in your transmission, the transmission will be in a limp home mode where it stays in one gear until the light turns off sometimes you can pull pull over in a safe manner and turn the vehicle on and off and the light will turn off temporarily until the problem happens again, we would advise to get it looked at as soon as possible because if it is stuck in one gear it can do more damage to the transmission.
