I have malfunction indicator lamp on how i can fix that

Have malfunction indicator lamp on how i cac fix that 95 honda civic. The malfunction indicator lamp is on. How does this differ from the check engine light. I would presume that the check engine light refers to an emissions problem, like an oxygen sensor, and the MIL refers to fuel or electrical (plugs, vacuums, etc.) Will an Auto Zone diagnostic access the correct code?

I have the same problem and took to ULTRA TUNE and after general service they said cant figure out the issue and asked me (on car pick up) how many times i had that light ON (answer is three times ON and OFF just in morning and after engine warm up then its goes OFF after restart) . Then day one from service i have the same problem and took it again to ULTRA TUNE (good news is i dont have to pay again to look into issues within 6 months of service) and after scanning the board they said cant figure out the issues and probably it might be either spark plug issues or sometime unleaded petrol may cause this and advised to change the fuel to premium petrol for week and then check. As expected no luck with premium petrol and third time they cleaned the throttle (full clean up) and advised the spark plug is okay and no need to change and as well as everything looks okay and advised to give a try. I went straight to GYM and back to car and started engine and got the lights TURNED on :( Its really furstating me now . CAN ANYONE PLEASE ADVISE how to handle this now?? IS HONDA service center is only place they can tell whats the issue is???????

I have a 2002 Honda Civic and the malfunction indicator lamp is on and my speedometer and odometer are not working at all. Any advice?


I would look in the owners manual and check the fuses for the guage cluster.
also take the vehicle to a local parts store and they should be able to check the codes for you so that you can narrow down the problem.
and if the light goes on for a few days then goes off you might want to check that your fuel cap is tight.

good luck, hope this helps

The m.i.l. will come on for lots of reasons but in my exp. if the car is running fine and you have oil pressure and its not over-heating that you wont damage the car by driving home.

I have malfunction indicator lamp on how i can fix that


go to autozne and have them do free engine computer scan. They will tell you fault codes.

Or, try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour. Then reconnect and drive 10 miles. It may have fixed itself already.
MIL light on is not a big issue. only if flashing

An intermittant check engine light ( MIL, malfunction indicator lamp) usually means the system has noticed some trouble that has either corrected itself or has been compensated for. You can have a shop check the DTCs ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes), or for pending codes ( problems noticed but not enough to store a fault code)
