Engine check light won't come on when engine is cold.


The check engine light should not come on at all. If it does than you need to put it on a code checker, to find out the reason for the check engine light coming on. The light is known as the malfunction indicator light (MIL). When it comes on it indicates a malfunction in the system.

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.

The Service stability light on 2003 escalade comes and shuts down my vehicle. What does this mean and what will it cost to fix


Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.

Drive light indicator flashes while driving!


Hi, if the light is flashing that means there is trouble code or codes set in the transmission control module.you need to get it to a shop were they can retieve these codes and fix the problem before you cause any further damage to your transmission by driving it in its current condition. it may be in limp mode.
It indicates a possible problem in the transmission. Avoid rapid acceleration and have the transmission checked by an authorized Honda dealer as soon as possible. The malfunction indicator lamp may come on along with the "D4" indicator if there is a problem in the automatic transmission control system.

Malfunction indicator lamp in my toyota corolla is on how i fix?


The check engine light also called the malfunction indicator 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, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Service engine light comes on 2006 pontiac blonnie, code 0440, what is it and how do I fix it


First thing to check is whether the gas cap is on tightly. If it is, the next would be to replace the gas cap. That solves 90% of these problems.

P0440 is a generic code for Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction... pretty much for all makes. It takes 1 malfunction to create a pending DTC... at 2 consecutive malfunctions the MIL(Malfunction Indicator Light,Check Engine Light, etc.} Ok, after you fix it, it should take 3 trips to turn off the light, then 40 more to Remove the code from the computers memory

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.
