The Malfuntion Indicator Lamp (MIL) is being lit up by the vehicle's computer to indicate there is a problem with one of the vehicle's systems.Have the vehicle scanned,write down the code number and definition,and ask whoever scans it what's involved in repairing the malfunction,and what system it is in.Or come back in here with the code number and definition,and we can help you.

Why is my Ford 500 wrench light


Hello!

The computer turns this light on when there is a powertrain malfunction/electronic throttle body system malfunction. It could be the throttle body, computer, wiring or a sensor into the computer used for the throttle body. You will need to scan your computer again when the code is illuminated on the dash. Chances are you will pick up a code when this is done in the computer.
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The APP sensor is an input to the powertrain control module (PCM) and is used to determine the torque demand. There are 3 pedal position signals in the sensor. Signal 1, APPS1, has a negative slope (increasing angle, decreasing voltage) and signals 2 and 3, APPS2 and APPS3, both have a positive slope (increasing angle, increasing voltage). During normal operation APPS1 is used as the indication of pedal position by the strategy. The 3 pedal position signals make sure the PCM receives a correct input even if 1 signal has a concern. There are 2 reference voltage circuits and 2 signal return circuits for the sensor. For additional information, refer to Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) in this section.

It should be noted that the ETC system includes a warning indicator, wrench warning indicator, on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a concern is present. Concerns are accompanied by diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and may also illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
You best bet is to take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop or the Ford dealer !

Hi, I have a 2007 Dodge Sprinter & am getting an alert code P2015. It's apparently a sensor malfunction. Can you tell me which sensor is affected by this trouble code?


Code Description onepxblk.gif P2015 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Signal Too Low - With Automatic Transmission arrow_right_blacks.gif Printer Friendly P2015 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Signal Too Low - With Automatic Transmission Possible Causes Setting Conditions
  • Check for air in the Fuel system
  • Check the fuel pressure
  • Check for leaks in the Fuel Supply system components
  • Fuel pressure solenoid has failed
  • Fuel quantity solenoid has failed
  • Fuel pump has failed
  • Fuel supply is contaminated
Engine running; and the ECM determined that the fuel rail pressure was too low for a given engine speed and load.

This code sets in 1 Trip(s).
This code will turn on the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) onepxblk.gif Malfunction Indicator Lamp The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) alerts the driver that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has detected an OBD II emission-related component or system fault. When this type of malfunction occurs, an OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set by the PCM. The MIL is located on the instrument cluster and is labeled CHECK ENGINE, SERVICE ENGINE SOON, or is identified with an ISO standard engine symbol (i.e., a picture of an engine).
Bulb Test
Each time the ignition switch is turned to the "on" position, the MIL indicator is illuminated for about 3 seconds (which is a function of the PCM).
MIL Lamp-On Message
Each time the PCM detects an Emissions related fault, the MIL is illuminated to inform the driver that the vehicle needs to be taken in for service.
onepxblk.gif COMPONENT MONITOR DRIVE CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS
  • Do not turn off the ignition switch during the test procedure.
  • All Onboard System Readiness codes are cleared if the battery is disconnected or when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is cleared with the scan tool.
  • This drive cycle can be used to determine if the Readiness code for this Monitor will run and complete, and if the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) will remain off after the vehicle is driven.
  • Operating Ranges: Whenever a range of values is provided, try to operate the vehicle in the middle of the range. For example, if the vehicle speed range is from 45-65 mph, operate the vehicle at as close as possible to 55 mph. If the Short Term fuel trim range is -20% to +20%; try to operate the vehicle near 0%.
  • Scan Tool Data: There are certain Parameter Identification (PID) values that must be within range before this Monitor will "run". It can be helpful to pull up those PID items on the scan tool so an assistant can view them during the test.
  • The Readiness code for this Monitor defaults to "continuous" or "monitoring" because this Monitor runs continuously when the engine is cranking or running.
  • This information is a representation of a Drive Cycle, and may vary due to software revisions to the PCM.
COMPONENT MONITOR PRETEST CONDITIONS
  • MIL is off.
  • Battery voltage between 11-16v.
  • Key on or engine running at idle or cruise speed.
TEST PROCEDURE
  1. Connect the scan tool to the data link connector (DLC).
  2. Start the engine and allow it to run at idle speed for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Accelerate at part-throttle to Cruise speed and maintain that speed for several minutes. Bring the vehicle to a stop, but do not turn off the ignition key.
  4. Check for any diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's) in memory. If any DTC's are set, refer to the appropriate trouble code chart to make the repair. If no DTC's are set, the test is finished. Return to the service bay and turn off the ignition key.

Turn cruise switch on and nothing


2 things prior to running the cruise control self Test

1. Do you have operational brake lamps ?

2. Have you had the recall done ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.
1L1Z-9F924-AA 14 supplements in the recall series

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

- 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

- 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

- 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

ALARM LIGHT ON THAT LOOKS LIKE A TRIANGLE WITH ARROW CIRCLING IT. WHAT DOES IT MEAN


On a 1998 3 series (E36) BMW, this indicator lamp is for the ASC+T = automatic stability control plus traction. It should go shortly after the ignition is switched on implying that the system is OK.
If the indicator lamp fails to go out after the engine is started, or comes on in the course of normal vehicle operation it means that the system has malfunctioned. The vehicle remains operational, but without ASC+T. You a have an 2001 3 series (E46), but I suspect the indicator lamp means the same as the E36 3 series. Look in owners manual under "indicator lamps"

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

    Diagnostic Test Modes Without Scan Tool
    Two mode options are available under the diagnostic test modes:
    • user mode.
    • diagnosis mode.
    The ignition switch is used to alternate from one mode to another.
    Diagnosis Mode
    The diagnosis mode will display any fault present in the system. The SRS will not enter diagnosis mode if no malfunction is detected.
    User Mode to Diagnosis Mode
    NOTE: The SRS will not enter diagnosis mode if no fault is detected in user mode.
    1. Ignition switch to ON.
    1. After the air bag warning indicator lights for seven seconds, set ignition switch to OFF within one second.
    1. Wait more than three seconds.
    1. Repeat steps 1 through 3 three times.
    1. Ignition switch to ON.
    Diagnosis Mode to User Mode — After Repair
    1. Ignition switch to OFF for at least one second.
    1. Ignition switch to ON.
    Diagnosis Mode to User Mode — During Diagnosis
    NOTE: If switch from Diagnosis Mode to User Mode is required while diagnosing a fault, carry out the following procedure.
    1. Ignition switch to ON.
    1. After the air bag warning indicator lights for seven seconds, set ignition switch to OFF within one second.
    1. Wait more than three seconds.
    1. Repeat steps 1 through 3 three times.
    1. Ignition switch to ON.
    Clearing Lamp Fault Codes
    NOTE: Lamp fault codes must be cleared from memory before proving out the system.
    NOTE: When a new RCM is installed, the air bag warning indicator will operate in user mode. Switching to diagnosis mode is not required.
    To clear lamp fault codes after a repair, carry out the procedure to switch from diagnosis mode to user mode. Once in the user mode, the lamp fault codes will be cleared from memory.
    Lamp Fault Codes
    If the air bag diagnostic monitor detects a current fault, the fault code will be displayed with a flashing sequence of the air bag indicator. The fault code consists of:
    • A start signal to indicate the beginning of a fault code.
    • A number of flashes indicating the particular code that has been set.
    The start signal:
    • begins with two seconds off.
    • two seconds on.
    • off.
    • one second on.
    • two seconds off.
    Following the start signal, if any current fault is detected, the fault code will be displayed. The fault code:
    • is a series of half second flashes of the air bag indicator.
    • is followed by the start signal.
    The start signal and the code for any current fault will repeat until the ignition is switched off or the air bag diagnostic monitor is switched to the user mode.
    Inspection and Verification
    1. Verify the customer concern by checking the air bag indicator in the instrument cluster. Refer to Prove Out in this section.
    1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage using the following chart.

    Switch off tire pressure warning light


    From the manual: First find the reset button, located below the handbrake (emergency brake) lever. The button has an "exclamation mark in a tyre" symbol.

    Make sure the pressures in all tyres are what you want them to be. 35psi all 'round is good for sporty driving.

    Engine off. Turn ignition to the second position (ON) but don't start the engine.

    Keep the re-set button pressed until the flat tyre indicator light on the dashboard COMES ON for several seconds.

    Start the engine, and drive the car normally for several minutes. This will re-set the indicator to whatever pressures you have in the tyres. Hope this helps!!
