The airline reported that the aircraft is undergoing an extensive examination even though so far no mechanical issue has been identified and the indication is believed to have been false. The passengers were taken to Makung by a replacement aircraft.

On Feb 22nd 2015 Taiwan's Civil Aviation Authority reported that the engine was working properly, the sensor system however delivered false indications. Parts of the sensor system have been replaced, examination and testing continues.
