NOTE:

Check the MIL circuit if MIL does not illuminate. Refer to EC- 467, "Component Function Check".

  1. When the engine is started, the MIL should go off.

NOTE:

If MIL continues to illuminate/blink, perform self-diagnoses and inspect/repair accordingly because an emission-related ECU has detected a malfunction in the emission control systems components and/or the powertrain control components (which affect vehicle emissions).
