Warning Lights Questions and Answers
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: 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 Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD. 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 Golden.
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 Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD in Golden and let us fix it.
Q: What are the main problems that cause a throttle control warning light to come on?A: The five main issues are:
- Irregular or dangerous unintended acceleration
- Intermittent loss of throttle control
- Sudden drop in fuel economy
- Hesitation or stumbling when accelerating.
- Engine stuck unable to accelerate beyond a fast idle.
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 Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD in Golden.
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.

This was our first time here and they did a great job. Gave us a fair price and quickly made the repairs. We will return if we need anything further and would recommend them to friends and family in the future.

Andersen's has been servicing our Volvos for at least 6 years. Always courteous, helpful, trustworthy and reliable, cost is fair. Most recently Firestone in Evergreen lost my tire locks/key (went to Firestone in a pinch, mistake, Firestone lost my tire key while installing snow tires) but the bottom line is that Andersen's worked kindly, patiently, helpfully to resolve this ( they couldn't complete my brake work, due to Firestone error, until I had a new set from dealer). Had a loaner from Andersen's even. They made a lot of phone calls on my behalf to assist. Prior to the brake appointment they reviewed the brakes at last minute to ensure I was safe to drive as I had dashboard notification right before Christmas). Andersen's is a "true gem" business whose focus is on customer safety, experience and value. And the front office is kind and helpful too!
