Warning Lights Questions and Answers
Q: Why does my car keep saying the coolant level is low?A: If a low coolant warning light is on do not continue to drive and go directly to the auto repair shop. It is simple and often inexpensive to fix at Familia Automotive. Waiting to get the problem resolved can result in high-cost engine repairs. If the low coolant warning light continues to flash on, then there is a leak in the car's cooling system. Coolant fluid can leak in several ways. First, external leaks from radiator hoses, second, connections between hoses, or lastly, from the radiator itself. Your car's radiator cap may leak due to a faulty seal on the cap which can be easily resolved by a specialist at our shop in Stockton.
Q: Why Is My Car's ABS Light On?A: An Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS warning light on your dash indicates something in your car's ABS needs to be checked out by a qualified mechanic. Your ABS is one of your most important safety systems. Do not ignore this warning light. Common issues are:
- Malfunctioning ABS module
- Low levels in the brake fluid reservoir
- Broken speed sensor
- The ABS system is not receiving power
Q: How do I fix a persistent traction control warning light?
A: Normally, when the traction control light comes on while driving it indicates the car's traction control lost grip or traction going around a sharp curve or while driving on wet pavement. However, sometimes the traction control warning light will come on and stay on.
The best way to determine whether it was just a fluke or a real issue is to shut your vehicle off and turn it back on. If the light is off, then it was likely a temporary malfunction. If the light does not reset, come by Familia Automotive in Stockton and let us fix it.
Q: Why is my throttle control warning light on?A: The connection between the gas pedal and acceleration is controlled by your car's throttle. The amount of acceleration or throttle control is governed by a sophisticated computer system. Any disruption of the electrical signals will affect your vehicle's acceleration and cause the throttle control warning light to come on. If your throttle control light comes on go directly to Familia Automotive in Stockton.

Q: Can I drive with the throttle control light on?A: No, unwanted acceleration may occur and cause an accident. Go straight to the repair shop. There can be many different causes for the throttle control warning light, many are simple fixes.
I highly recommend Familia Auto. They took care of wheel bearings on my 2014 Forester. The diagnosis was spot-on and replacement was done quicker than what I could have gotten at dealership. Price was very reasonable as well. I plan on using for other maintenance needs.Denise Dew

I thought my car was going to get new control arms. BUT, I didn't because Klent went through it with a fine tooth comb. I appreciate his professionalism and most of all his honesty. Thank you for giving me hope that there are still people like you. Big ups and God bless you all at Familia Automotive.
Took my car to Robles Automotive to get it fixed. Robles had my car for months, finally got it, fix cost over 7 hundred dollars and still did not fix it. Went to Familia Automotive and they did an excellent job and was cheaper with a longer warranty. No more issues, car runs great and been going there since. Gets the job done.
