Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma
I have an 2006 Toyata tacoma which is indicating "Malfunction indicator lamp" how do I fix this problem?
The Malfunction Indicator Lamp or MIL (Also called the check engine light or service engine soon light) comes on when the on board computer detects an issue with the operation of the engine or transmission.
The best thing to do is to take the vehicle to an auto parts store like Autozone and have them hook up their scan tool to the vehicle and read the code. They can read it, tell you what it is and also tell you what the code means.
If it is pointing to a faulty component or sensor and you replace or repair the component the the light will go off on its own after the computer sees that the malfunction is no longer present.
You can have the code cleared, but if whatever caused the light to come on in the first place is not addressed then it will just come back on eventually.
