Customer Question
The MIL is showing...

The MIL is showing on my dashboard and the vehicle is losing power when I drive.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Not a problem. You can work with the Hyundai Mechanic to figure that out. What is the model/year of your Hyundai?

2016. I have called road side assistance but there is a 90 minute wait. I have a migraine and live over an hour away so I wanted to know if it safe enough to drive home?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. I’m just sitting in it waiting for roadside assistance. Is it easily fixable? Do you think the patrol man will be able to fix it?

No.

Ok if the check engine light is just lid up solid and not liking then yes it can be driven at a normal speed not heavy throttle but i recommend you have it checked out asap if the check engine light starts blinking while driving then its not recommended to drive it because if the light starts blinking it indicates not all cylinders firing correctly . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide positive feedback /star rating for the help provided thank you
