You need to have an OBII scan (fault scan) done to identify what is triggering computer/light/ Any good shop or parts store can scan it for you.

Malfunction indicator light


the light is telling you that there is a problem in the engine management or transmission management systems
The smart ting to do is to have the fault codes read and the problem item repaired/replaced before it becomes a costly replacement

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.

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.

Check 4 wheel drive light keeps coming on.....


Not true that GM dealer is the only one that can fix it . There are other independent repair shops that can, Transmission repair shops like AAMCO . You could too if you had access to a scan tool that can read DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes for the 4X4 system . There is a 4X4 control module that can store DTC'S when problems happen . When a warning like check 4 Wheel Drive light's up ,it's not meant for you to do anything except take it to the dealer ,well ,that's what the dealer would like .
Would need to know which 4X4 transfer case your's has ? Two speed manual , two speed selectable , two speed automatic ?
Their are a few different one's
Transfer Case - BW 4401 (Two Speed Manual)
Transfer Case - BW 4470 (Two Speed Manual)
Transfer Case - NVG 241-NP2 (Two Speed Manual)
Transfer Case - NVG 243-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
Transfer Case - NVG 246-NP8 (Two Speed Automatic)

Two speed Automatic system can set a number of codes
DTC B0768 Service Indicator Circuit High
DTC B2725 ATC Mode Switch Circuit Malfunction
DTC C0300 Rear Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0305 Front Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0308 Motor A/B Circuit Low
DTC C0309 Motor A/B Circuit High
DTC C0310 Motor A/B Circuit Open
DTC C0315 Motor Ground Circuit Open
DTC C0323 T-Case Lock Circuit Low
DTC C0324 T-Case Lock Circuit High
DTC C0327 Encoder Circuit Malfunction
DTC C0357 Park Switch Circuit High
DTC C0362 4LO Discrete Output Circuit High
DTC C0367 Front Axle Control Circuit High
DTC C0374 General System Malfunction
DTC C0376 Front/Rear Shaft Speed Mismatch
DTC C0387 Unable to Perform Shift
DTC C0550 ECU Malfunction
DTC C0611 VIN Information Error
Without having this info you could go round an round an never find the problem .

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.
