SOURCE: what causes the malfunction indicator lamp to comes on honda accord 2001?what can i do to correct it?

It could be anything at all that is electrical or sensor-related in nature. Your car is an OBD2 car (for emissions), and it's a very strictly-controlled system. As a result, pretty much anything that fails will cause the light to come on and will store a code in the computer. Go to AutoZone and ask them to scan your computer for codes - they'll do it for free, where a dealer will hit you for up to an hour's labor. They'll tell you the fault codes, which will point you in the right direction for the fix. Get the codes that come out of the scan and post them as a reply here and we can go from there.

SOURCE: Malfunction indicator lamp is on.

First change the fuel filter its due anyway at 90thou plus. then you have to check sparkplugs, due anyway. then have the fuel pressure checked if it is building 30psi plus. if not the fuel pump may be the culprit.

SOURCE: Malfunction indicator lamp came on five days ago,

not neccessarily, but that may depend on the year of your vehicle. All 1996 and newer vehilces made for sale in the US have an OBDII powertrain control module. you can go to any certified mechanic and have the error code or codes scanned/read for an idea of what system is causing the MIL or Check Engine Light to stay on. from there they would need to pinpoint the problem which in many cases is an emissons part that may have failed.

Check your CAPS LOCK as that may be the problem.

Hello Michael.
While your fuel cap may still be an issue there are many other items that may be at fault. It's possible the fuel cap tightening is a coincidence and something else is causing the problem.
There are a few hundred possibilities that could turn on your MIL.
First thing that needs to be done is verify what the code is that turns on the light. If you are in the USA Autozone will give you a free scan to start you off. Then you can begin to home in on the problem.
Best of the festive season to you.

Error code 340 & 457


  • P0340 - Camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
  • P0457 - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (fuel filler cap loose/off)

    There is a bulletin #0398 posted on 05/12/2003 for P0457 - Malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination with diagnostic trouble codes p0442, p0455, p0456, p0457, p1442 or check fuel cap lamp illuminated with diagnostic trouble code p0457.

I'd suggest checking with your local dealer, as it may be a fix that is covered by the dealer.

My malfunction indicator light came on and won't go off


Read your owners manual

Why would a Malfunction Lamp come on,
& then go off, if you don't diagnose the problem
& make the required repair.

That technology is 30 years old & your not
up to speed?

Anybody know why my fog lights on a mkV R32 won't


Well, First, you get the "dttech DIY auto repair person of the week award" for at least LOOKING in the Owner's Manual first! That is better than MOST Fixya users would do. Probably 90% of the Owner's Manuals in peoples glove boxes are still in the wrappers they came in from the factory!

The reason the Owner's Manual is no help in finding the fog lamp fuse is because the fog lamps do not have their own fuse. The power for the fog lamps is actually supplied by the Vehicle Electrical System Control Module (VESCM), which is located under the left side of the dash.

The fog lamp indicators in the instrument cluster are actually a completely different circuit than the fog lamps themselves. The Instrument Cluster Control Module (ICCM) turns these lamps on when the VESCM sends a message over the data communication line to tell the ICCM that it has turned the fog lamps on. So my guess is that there is no indicator on the dash because the VESCM is not commanding the fog lamps to turn on.

The possible reasons for this could be that the VESCM is not recognizing that you are WANTING the fog lamps on (due to a switch malfunction or a wiring problem between the switch and the VESCM) or the VESCM is malfunctioning, or the VESCM has detected a short circuit in the fog lamp circuits and is refusing to turn them on in an effort to protect the vehicle from burning to the ground.

So, in short, the BEST way to figure out why your fog lamps are not working is to scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes and check the live input data from the light switch to see if the VESCM is recieving the message that you are trying to turn the fog lamps on, as well as see if the VESCM is commanding the fog lamps on (probably not, or the dash indicators would be on).

Welcome to the world of modern auto repair where the vehicle manufacturers go to GREAT LENGTHS to keep you from figuring out these thing for yourself an FORCE you back into their dealerships for repairs......A whole other subject that really eats my craw!

Malfunction Indicator Light is on in my 2003 Hyundai XG350. It is not blinking. Won't have money to repair for a week. Can I still drive it? If not, are there any affordable service centers that offer...


When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

When i switch off headlights and engine, after a while the front and rear lights and number light plate come on any idea why ?


There are parking lights (front & rear) and Headlights - High & Low beam. There are also 'Marker' lamps (front & rear). Which Hyundai Model Vehicle is this?

You're describing a malfunction that either exists in the Multi-function switch on the steering column... OR you have a tail lamp relay in the passenger compartment junction block/box which is shorting out.... OR you have a malfunction in the ETACS (Electronic Time & Alarm Control System)/Body Control module,.. OR there's a problem with the wiring harness (wiring).
Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, illustrations, etc. OR Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose your vehicle.

I have a 99 town car and the engine light came on and a code came up po460 what is this code can u help


P0460 Fuel Level Sensor A Circuit Malfunction, ford posted this service tip for all 97 to 05 ford vehicles - INTERMITTENT MIL ON WITH DTC P0460 - SERVICE TIP
SOME 1997-2005 VEHICLES MAY EXHIBIT AN INTERMITTENT MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP (MIL) ON WITH DTC P0460 (FUEL LEVEL SENSOR CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION). THIS CONDITION MAY BE CAUSED BY AN IMPROPERLY INSTALLED REMOTE START SYSTEM, AFFECTING THE FLUID LEVEL INPUT (FLI) INFORMATION TO THE PCM. THE CONDITION MAY BE DIFFICULT TO DUPLICATE. TO SERVICE, CHECK FOR AN IMPROPERLY INSTALLED FORD OR AFTERMARKET REMOTE STARTER SYSTEM. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER OR HEC MUST HAVE POWER TO ALL 'HOT IN RUN' CIRCUITS FOR THE FUEL GAUGE CIRCUIT TO PROPERLY RELAY FLI INFORMATION TO THE PCM (EITHER BY NETWORK COMMUNICATION OR A DIRECT HARDWIRE CIRCUIT
another I have seen addresses the fuel problem just says the tank got over filled, the gas cap is bad, and that the system is clogged due to a poor grade of fuel being used, Ford recommends a Chevron fuel cleaner additive that should improve this problem

My yellow 'exhaust system' light is on. Took it in, they replaced the gas cap and all was well- light was out. Two starts later, light is back on. Any ideas?


No such thing as an exhaust system light

That was an EVAP System Light

Was the gas cap tested & was it bad or
you just thru one on & hoped that was it?

Get the OBD2 Codes that you will have from
Malfunction Indicator Lamp being on,& give
them to us,or just it repaired at a local shop

Not the same place you went to
They failed to even test the EVAP
System or you wouldn't be having any issues

I have a light that's on shaped like an open wrench what does that mean


MIL Lamp --Malfunction Indicator Lamp

They have been on ALL Vehicles for 30 years now

Some are different shapes and some times called a
check engine light.

When you get any light on your dash, you go to the owners
manual --- no one has

Then within a couple days, you either check for codes
that are a result of the light coming on,& a mechanic will
use the codes to diagnose one of your cars systems with
a problem & offer your a repair solution.

They are very important lamps and not called dummy lamps
or something you can or want to make go away

They are there as a result of the Federal Govt's effort to
reduce emmisions that started in 1955 and was only
put in place in 1981 thru 2011
