Malfunction Indicator Lamp

The check gages light was coming on and I thought that was fixed. The repairs for that were done. But now the malfunction indicator lamp is on. I can't pay for any repairs until Friday but today is Tuesday.The check gages light comes on sometime but not all the time. I've had the oil pump changed, an oil change, the fuel pump replaced and a tune up. Right now my car drives pretty good but the MIL is still on. Is it safe to drive my car while the lamp is on? I plan on going to get it fixed on Thursday or Friday.

How to fix Toyota Landcruiser "Malfunction Indicator Lamp Light"


Common problems that can cause the Check Engine light to come on In older cars, it was typically something like a bad oxygen sensor, faulty mass airflow sensor, failed catalytic converter, worn-out spark plugs, ignition wires, a loose gas cap or a clogged-up EGR system. Newer cars have a lot more electronics, which means, many other things could go wrong too. It's practically impossible to find the problem without at least scanning the vehicle and retrieving the stored code(s). On the other hand, once you know the code that caused your Check Engine light, it's not that difficult to do some research and find out common problems for your car's make and model that can cause the particular code.

& then go off, if you don't diagnose the problem
& make the required repair.

Malfunction indicator lamp illuminated on daewoo lacetti


The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test

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.
