When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

2003 Hyundai Elantra Malfunction Light is On

What you can do is go to Auto Zone and have the code read.They will do this for free.This is the best thing to do.Other wise your just wasting your money replacing things that could have nothing to do will the problem.The owners manual just gives you a vague idea of what it could be.Usually the light will have to be reset with a scan tool or after it passes the test for what ever was causing the problem the light will clear itself.Some times it can take a times before it clears.Hope this helps.Good luck.

''Malfunction Indicator Light''

they just hired some ******** college graduate to confuse normal people.
you can take your car to Autozone and they will check your codes for free,one of the sensors on the car did not respond fast enough for the computer,have the code cleared before doing anything to see if it returns.
your car is not running pollution free.or fuel efficient

VSC and Malfunction Indicator came on and stays on

When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.

I have a 2004 Hyundai Elantra and my malfunction indicator light came on while I was driving with my heater on this morning. I don't have much money, what am I supposed to do? Is it expensive to fix? what...

It is difficult to say what is wrong from a malfunction light. it may not have anything to do with your heater as long as your heater is working ok.

the malfuntion light maybe for anything and so impossible to judge without more information as to the cost.

i would recommend asking a dealership if they can tell you what is wrong just to ensure it is not something to do with the breaks or airbags etc.

Exhaust gas component related malfunction light.

You will have to read the codes and see specifically what the problem is. Sometimes its more then one code. So its real simple to do. So just get a peice of wire maybe and inch long, bend it like a horse shoe. Then find the little jumper box,its usually on the fire wall. So in the manual find the the 2 plug in points. Thats in the emissions section. Then sit in the car and turn the key on do not start the car. and watch the blinking engine light. count the blinks and compare them in the manual. You now know the specific problem
