Re: MIL indicator lamp
When your check engine light goes on go straight to the auto parts store and dont shut the car off, any autoparts store, tell them you need to have a code pulled from your car they will do it for free, then get back on here and send me a message i will look the code up and tell you what it is and how to fix it. take care and good luck

The instrument cluster (10849) carries out a display proveout to verify that all warning/indicator lamps and monitored systems are functioning correctly. When the ignition switch (11572) is in the ON position with the engine (6007) off, the following indicators will illuminate:
CHECK ENGINE/malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
CHECK GAGE warning indicator.
Charge system warning indicator.
Anti-lock brake warning indicator (ABS).
Safety belt warning indicator (60second proveout).
Air bag indicator.
An indicator is inoperative - CHECK ENGINE/malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
Be advised that the MIL or CHECK ENGINE light can only perform a limited number of functions and it is a good idea to have the system checked with a scan tool to double check the circuit function.
Within a period of 5 seconds, cycle the ignition key ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON .
Count the number of times the MIL (check engine lamp) on the instrument panel flashes on and off.
The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a short pause between the flashes representing the 1st and 2nd digits of the code. Longer pauses are used to separate individual 2-digit trouble codes.
An example of a flashed DTC is as follows:
Lamp flashes 4 times, pauses, then flashes 6 more times. This denotes a DTC number 46.Lamp flashes 5 times, pauses, then flashes 5 more times. This indicates a DTC number 55. DTC 55 will always be the last code to be displayed.
P0700 = TCU request for 'MIL' on (IE transmission control unit has detected a fault and wants you to know about it.)
A communication line exists between the Engine Control Module(ECM) and
the Trans-axle Control Module (TCM). The sole purpose of this
communication line is for the TCM to notify the ECM to activate the
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) when a serious trans-axle failure has
If the signal "MIL ON" is requested from TCU or it is no signal from TCU, the ECM judged as a fault and DTC is set.
Kia's first suggestion is to check for damaged wiring or connectors.
Try this: Disconnect your battery for about 5 minutes to clear the fault. Then take it for a spin and see how it shifts... good luck.
not neccessarily, but that may depend on the year of your vehicle. All 1996 and newer vehilces made for sale in the US have an OBDII powertrain control module. you can go to any certified mechanic and have the error code or codes scanned/read for an idea of what system is causing the MIL or Check Engine Light to stay on. from there they would need to pinpoint the problem which in many cases is an emissons part that may have failed.
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.
Harness or connectors (MIL circuit is open or shorted.)
Code 12.................Problem with the battery connection. Direct battery input to PCM disconnected within the last 50 ignition key-on cycles.
either a loose connection or the battery dead or removed within 50 last times you turned on the car, check battery terminals for corrosion or loose connector, and check the earth wire for corrosion, the code will dissapear by itself if the power is not removed again
