Question about 2004 Chevrolet Aveo
Lamp suddenly start illuminates and remain like that. Can I still drive the car and what is the cause for this? Owners manaul stated that driving with the MIL on can cause damage to the emission control system. Thanks, Frans
U can still drive the car, the light means that a malfuntion has occured in the engine/emission system electronic controls, have the system tested for the trouble code that was stored with the light.

The MIL turns OFF after the engine is started if a diagnostic fault is not present.
The MIL remains illuminated after the engine is started if the control module detects a fault. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored any time the control module illuminates the MIL due to an emissions related fault. The MIL turns OFF after three consecutive ignition cycles in which a Test Passed has been reported for the diagnostic test that originally caused the MIL to illuminate.
The MIL flashes if the control module detects a misfire condition which could damage the catalytic converter.
When the MIL is illuminated and the engine stalls, the MIL will remain illuminated as long as the ignition is ON.
When the MIL is not illuminated and the engine stalls, the MIL will not illuminate until the ignition is cycled OFF and then ON.
