Is it safe to drive with my engine management light on?

I get asked this question more and more these days,people are finding that their cars are running seemingly normally with this warning light,the advise I always give is to let me “plug in” and see what is stored in the system. Sometimes there is a minor fault that can be fixed easily other times a quick system reset sorts it out,but more and more these days there is a sensor that has gone down and locked the engine management system into a “limp home” setting, although this allows the engine to run relatively normally can have disastrous effects on fuel consumption. I always therefore advise my customers to allow me to plug in first and then we can decide on a plan. It’s not always as bad as you think.
