just had this on my 2007 2.0 did outlander, replaced the egr throttle body which cleared fault code p0487 which i also had, but p0488 was a little more tricky to find out what it was, after searching the internet i checked the fuses, sure enough a 15a fuse had blown, about 6th from the right as you look at the fuse box with an engine symbol identifyng it. changed the fuse cleared the fault code job done, it seems a broken egr throttle body will blow this fuse according to my research. hope this helps someone.
A fault has been detected. The best way to find out what it is would be to hook up a shop scanner. It may just be soemthing simple like a wheel sensor but a scanner would show the data that all the sensors are putting out and comparisons and test can be done.
There are many issues that can cause the light to come on without immediately affecting performance, anything from a leaking fuel cap seal to an evap purge solenoid sticking. You will need to access the trouble codes and go from there with diagnosis.
Press the "Info" button on the left of the dash cluster until your maintenance miles/months screen is displayed.
Press and hold the "info" button until the maintenance screen begins flashing.
Release the "info" button and then push and hold it it for one second.
Your Maintenance intervals should reset to +6 months and +7500 miles since the last interval amount.
Note that if you have not reset it for more than one interval, you may need to do it more than once. If you have not done it for many intervals, you may need to have it reset with the scantool at a dealer, as I have run into a handful of vehicles that the oil change reminder locked up after 3-4 "intervals" were skipped/not reset.
