Hey guys, new here. Have a 2019 SEL and I've had some issues with the car after 6 months of ownership. A lot of wonkiness with sensors and one blindspot sensor is now gone completely. But to get back in topic I take the car out today and the check engine light is on. I cant detect any issues and the gas cap is definitely on correctly. I was wondering if wiser minds than my own had any ideas as to what could cause it. I'll be taking it in soon to get to the root of all the issues nevertheless.

Did you get the car scanned? Without that we are unable to even help you.

Not yet. I was just wondering if anyone had this issue before and what it was. I drove the car today and the first time I did it was still on. I got back in it an hour later and it was gone.

This can literally be a bunch of things and without the code, nobody here can help you. Dealer time.

Should be under warranty. Take it in.

Wow, hope you are not in for the wild ride we had with our 2019 Atlas. Over about 7 months, our atlas had to go to dealer 7 times because of check engine light kept coming on. First time head gasket was replaced. Next several times they tried different things from saying low battery in key fob. when 6th time it happen they said there was a problem with something dealing with transmission. Then it happen again. 7th time, this time VW national techs got involved. Engine was loosing oil pressure when at idle, so they instructed dealership to pull the cam. When they did they fLund missing rings on end of cam. VW then said engine was compromised as they could not find the missing parts. Ordered the engine to be replaced. We have had atlas back 1 month now and so far no check engine light has cone back on, fingers crossed. Really like the atlas, the room, the ride, the fuel economy, in general nothing bad about it. Just hope the check engine light stays off

Holy crap! Thats terrible. When that stuff was happening did the car present any symptoms other than the light being on?

No other symptoms, in fact dealer told us as long as it wasn’t flashing that it was safe to drive. We didn’t feel comfortable driving car and having it break down somewhere. But no, no other symptoms

The software recall should solve the wonky sensor issue, did for me. Not sure about the check engine light.

I have a 2018 and the check engine light came on again, this time when I took it in, after about 2 hours I was told it was a failed #2 injector. I have about 36K miles on my Atlas so I was surprised an injector had failed. Now, here's the bad news, the #2 injector requires the front end of the car to be removed, from the grill to the block. Really a poor design idea and I hope it never happens to someone out of warranty. They will have my car the better part of a week to complete the repair. I have been assured that this is a fluke but I'm reconsidering buying the vehicle out of the lease. Has anyone else had this issue?

I used to go back to dealer for 7 times and the Check Engine Light issue stay with me for 1.5 year. After received a recall and update the software in APR,2020. So far so good but I didn't drive a lot (only 5000km) due to the VIRUS.
You need a "Emissions Recall 24FK - Engine Control Module (ECM) Software". My ATLAS is 2019 ATLAS 3.6 AWD (Canada).
