Do Electric Cars Have a Check Engine Light?

Since electric cars have batteries rather than engines, they don’t have a check engine light. Rather, they have a battery and electrical issue light that will similarly activate when the car is experiencing issues. This is referred to as the general electric issue light or symbol. At that point, it’s best to have your electric car looked at if the light persists, as it can mean one or more issues with the battery system.
