HYBRID DIAGNOSTIC, REPAIR & MAINTENANCE EXPERTS SINCE 2010

Check Engine Light

The yellow/amber Check Engine Light is part of the onboard diagnostics (OBD-II) system in your hybrid vehicle.  It’s located on your instrument panel and it lights up when your OBD System detects one or more problems with your vehicle’s system.  If your check engine light comes on, the safest course of action would be bringing your vehicle to our service center located at 969 North Batavia St., Orange, CA 92867 where an experienced ASE Certified Hybrid technician can properly diagnose the problem.

Electron Automotive is a dedicated hybrid repair, maintenance and diagnostic facility.  Our team of ASE Certified Hybrid Technicians use the latest cutting edge diagnostic technology and factory scan tools to determine where the problem is and why it triggered the Check Engine Warning Light to come on.  Your ASE Certified Hybrid technician will review the diagnostic results along a detailed explanation of what triggered the Check Engine Warning Light and how to repair it cost-effectively and professionally.

and professional way possible waylong-term q needs to be done to most  cost-effective long term solutions torepairs most cost effective long term solutions  to turn off the Check Engine Light by fixing the underlying problems permanently and professionally.  We back the quality of our hybrid repair and replacement work with an industry leading 3 Year/36,000 Mile warranty and our level of customer satisfaction and service is second to none.

What to Do if Your Check Engine Light Comes On?

Check engine lights come on for things as trivial as loose gas caps or as serious as failing catalytic converters, but they offer little in the way of details to distinguish one from the other.  The “gas cap fix” is always a good place to start when your check  engine light first comes  on.  Surprisingly, loose or damaged gas caps are one of the most common causes for a hybrid vehicle’s check engine light to come on.

When your yellow check engine light first comes on, as long as the light is solid and not blinking, you can pull over in a safe location and inspect your gas cap. If it is loose, tightening the gas cap could very well solve your problem. If it’s broken or damaged, head to your local auto parts store and purchase a new one.  If you’ve already tried the “gas cap” fix, you should bring your vehicle into our hybrid service center to be properly diagnosed by one of our ASE Certified Hybrid technicians

Don’t be fooled by shops or big franchise chains offering to run “FREE” tests to get error codes for you.  The error codes that you receive may apply to multiple issues on your hybrid and the best Free Test technology can do is narrow it down to what and where it might be.  Our hybrid technicians use proprietary cutting edge diagnostic technology to determine exactly what’s wrong with your hybrid. We own this technology and it is not available to our competitors.  Our diagnostics will pinpoint the exact problem and your ASE Certified Hybrid technician will help you better understand what the problem is and what the most cost effective long-term solutions ar

The people at Electron are very knowledgeable about all things hybrid and electric and are super friendly. You can tell that they really care about you as a customer, and they are honest with you about what your car actually needs instead of just adding on unnecessary repairs. I have had a very good experiences with them overall!

My fan belt broke and was able to drive it to this shop and park before the battery died. They were able to get me the company loner car while the parts were delivered the next day. Not Just a hybrid repair shop. Very nice staff and great service.

I came here for service a while back and was really happy I came here. They were super nice and explained everything well. I felt like for once I wasn't being scammed on service for my older Honda and for that I'll be back

07 Prius brake actuator was suddenly running very frequently, likely on the brink of failure. Dealership backorder of 250+ units. Possible months of delay. Electron Automotive had used parts in stock, with a 3 year, 36k mile warranty. Half the price of the dealership. These guys saved me.

I brought my 2008 Prius in because I thought I needed a new HV Battery. They found out that the HV Battery was still good, but it was a sensor that had gone bad and some clogged parts. I ended up spending less then what I was expecting to pay after they serviced my car. My Hybrid runs like new and I love it. I highly recommend this place for hybrid vehicles their pricing is great.

I brought my Cadillac ELR to get the high-voltage system checked. They were quick and responsive with a great price, I got my car back later that same day. I will definitely be coming back for any other repairs my vehicle needs. I highly recommend anybody with a hybrid and/or an EV to check them out.
