Malfunction Indicator Light

Malfunction Indicator LightThis is a Malfunction Indicator Light  (MIL) symbol. This light, on steadily or blinking, indicates a fault in the emission control system. It may also indicate that the gas cap is loose or missing. The text itself reads Service Engine Soon.

Ensuring that the gas cap is on and properly tightened to at least one click is one of the few fixes available to the average motorist. If this light is on and the gas cap is installed properly, see your dealer or authorized service center as soon as you can. If it is blinking, reduce your speed, avoid hard acceleration and deceleration and see your dealer as soon as possible.
