A MECHANIC with more than 55 years of experience has revealed what to do when bizarre lights start to flash in your car.
Scotty Kilmer, with more than five million followers on social media,says you need a scan tool to discover why the engine management light on your dashboard has turned on.
But TikTok user @scottykilmerofficial insisted that you don't need to spend hundreds on this electronic tool because most garages wouldn't charge you for using it.
He says: "In this case, it's P0 46. What does that mean? It's an antipollution thing."
"Sometimes is a bad gas cap, but in this case, the cap has already been changed.it's been on for months, and it runs perfectly fine."
The mechanic warned drivers that if the light is flashing on and off, it means that you have a serious problem in your vehicle.
