There are so many things,big and small,that could cause that light to come on.You could spend thousands and still not have it turn off.Just make sure all your fluids are good and you should be fine(steering,oil,antifreeze,brake).It sounds like it is not a problem with vehicle inspection in your state,if there is any.If you really want to find out what is causing it,it would need a computer diagnostics test.I think the one for that costs around $100.It may tell you 1 thing wrong,it may tell you 6.People on here have asked the same question,done the test,fixed what it "recommended",and it still stays on so it is up to you.I just wanted to give you a somewhat educated researched opinion of what you are looking at for possibilities.Good luck!

What does mil cmd fail mean?


MIL is your malfunction indicator lamp, (check engine light)

CMD is the computer interface port, or OBDII port indicating a malfunction communicating with your cars computer

check all the fuses, primarily any marked pcm and retest your vehicle
note: your check engine or MIL has to be on in KOEO state (key on engine off), if the bulb is burned out everything will still work and the OBDII test computer will show MIL status ON, and if you don't have a computer to tell you that, you must get that light to light in the koeo state.

No spark crank sensor works COIL WORKS BUT WONT START THE ENGIAN LIGHT FLASHES 3 to 4 times please tell me whats wrong and why it does not start


You have the old school check engine light, which you turn your key without cranking fully on off three times it will give two digit codes separated by pause ending in five five meaning end of codes.

When I try to turn on my 1992 Acura integra nothing happens, I bought a used battery and installed it and still nothing the battery work well cause when I connect the positive cable it spark but my car...


Have the battery load tested as a spark doesn't mean that it has the means to turn the motor.. Second point if it sparked when you put on a terminal there was a power surge that may have damaged the cpu.Have the cpu checked. and fault codes read.

My MIL light is on, what's it mean?


MIL light will come on when the cars engine computer finds a problem, you will need to take it to a shop to determine what trouble code there is and then have testing performed to determine the actual repairs that are needed.

My honda prelude keeps reving everytime i drive it and my engiane light is always on.


Is it revving up when the car is idling? Is the idle speed higher than it should be? If so, you either have a vaccum leak, or your idle air control valve is bad. Sounds like the second, but i'd take it by autozone and have them pull the check engine light codes to be sure. They do it for free. If they say its a vaccum leak, let me know and I'll explain how to find it.

Hello - I just bought a 2004 Jetta - day one - mil light came on. Car runs fine. What could it be? 2 mechanics checked the car over before I bought it and carfax said it was one owner no problems.


Have VW check it out. I had just got my 04 GLI with 70,000 miles when the light came on. The thermostat triggered the light and so I had the whole timing belt, thermostat, and water pump service. Worth the money.

What does code 1-p0650 mean?


P0650 Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Control Circuit Malfunction

Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is located on the instrument panel. When the ignition switch is turned ON without engine running, MIL will light up. This is a bulb check. When the engine is started, MIL should go off. If MIL remains on, the on board diagnostic system has detected an engine system malfunction.

Possible Causes:
  • Harness or connectors (MIL circuit is open or shorted.)
  • MIL bulb may be faulty
