Audi Check Engine Light FAQ's for drivers in Denver, Colorado

Unfortunately, it's a bit of a check-all warning. Lots of different things can make your Audi's computer think something is wrong. Mild to moderate problems will make it glow a solid orange or yellow. Serious problems or issues that are likely to turn into emergencies make the light flash or turn red. Some of the most common issues behind a lit Audi Check Engine Light are:


  • Misfires — If your engine misfires, the computer inside your car should register the problem (or the resulting loss of power).
  • Leaks — For example, an air leak in the intake manifold or a leak in the evaporative emissions system can turn on the light.
  • Activated Sensors — As cars get smarter, they have more sensors. Almost any of them, such as your Audi's oxygen sensor, can register a problem.


There are hundreds of reasons why your Check Engine Light can come on. Once you see it, pay closer attention to the sound and feel of your engine.
