SOURCE: Exhaust gas component related malfunction light.

You will have to read the codes and see specifically what the problem is. Sometimes its more then one code. So its real simple to do. So just get a peice of wire maybe and inch long, bend it like a horse shoe. Then find the little jumper box,its usually on the fire wall. So in the manual find the the 2 plug in points. Thats in the emissions section. Then sit in the car and turn the key on do not start the car. and watch the blinking engine light. count the blinks and compare them in the manual. You now know the specific problem

Why would my OBD or malfunction indicator light come on and stay on?


Check engine light comes on with faulty oxygen sensor, loose gas cap or faulty gas cap. sometimes with low octane fuel as well. fill up with high octane fuel, tighten down the cap and see if it helps.

Could be all sorts of things. Have a garage or a dealer read the ECU error code to see what is be flagged.


Might be as simple as the gas cap is not tight.

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.

If it is because of a gas cap it may take a couple days to for the pcm to run a sufficient number of tests to ensure that the condition is no longer present to fail.

I am driving my Dodge Caravan then suddenly it appears a malfunction indicator light sign; kindly please tell me how to turn off this sign? thanks so much..


YOU CAN NOT TURN THE MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LIGHT OFF. GO TO AN AUTO ZONE, AND THEY CAN CHECK IT FOR FREE. THE ONLY THING IS, I WAS A STATE INSPECTOR FOR 2YRS. WE WERE TOLD THAT, THAT LIGHT SHOULD NEVER BE ON. IF ITS ON ITS FOR A REASON, BUT ON DODGES I KNOW THERE NITRIOUS FOR THERE GAS CAPS CAUSING IT TO COME ON. IF U HAD THE GAS CAP OFF, AND STARTED IT PROBABLY CAUSE IT TO COME ON.

VSC and Malfunction Indicator came on and stays on


When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.

Service engine light comes on 2006 pontiac blonnie, code 0440, what is it and how do I fix it


First thing to check is whether the gas cap is on tightly. If it is, the next would be to replace the gas cap. That solves 90% of these problems.

P0440 is a generic code for Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction... pretty much for all makes. It takes 1 malfunction to create a pending DTC... at 2 consecutive malfunctions the MIL(Malfunction Indicator Light,Check Engine Light, etc.} Ok, after you fix it, it should take 3 trips to turn off the light, then 40 more to Remove the code from the computers memory
