SOURCE: Malfunction indicator lamp
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.

If it is an error produced by the engine control system, you should be able to clear it using an OBD II reader. OBD=on board diagnostics. You have to find the plug for the unit, but just plug it in and the machine will read it. I usually borrow one from the local car parts store--give an ID and they will let you temporarily borrow it. Make sure you read the error code as well. There may be some interesting info about what produced the error message. Good luck.

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

Check under drivers door sill step. There is a spice I believe the wires are red or pink in color. The splice will be wrapped in black hockey tape looking stuff. Peel the the hockey tape stuff off and you will find that this splice is corroded and not making contact anymore. You can repair this splice and your problems will be fixed. Be sure to use some good heat shrink on your repair to prevent from happening again.
