2000 Kia Sephia MIL Circuit Malfunction. WHat is it and how do I fix it?
Country: United StatesMake: KiaModel: SephiaYear: 2000
Hi,the MIL light only comes on when the onboard computer detects a fault in either the engine management system, transmission, or emission control system. Faults can range from vacuum leak, engine misfire, transmission problem, emission control leak, one of dozens of engine or transmission sensors, or even internal engine or transmission failure. There are over 800 fault codes that can cause the MIL light to come on. And not every one has symptoms you can feel or see or hear.The only way to determine which of the over 800 faults is responsible is to have the onboard computer read with a diagnostic scanner. once this is done and the fault code retreived then pinpoint diagnosis can be done and repair done.without knowing which of the over 800 faults is responsible, it is simply impossible, as well as irresponsible for anyone to guess at to which one is responsible for the MIL light coming on.Unless you live in California, you can run your car by any major parts store and they will retreive the fault code and definition for you for FREE. At that point, you can decide if this is something you can repair yourself or have a professional do the repair?.Please note, your Deposit doesn't constitute a payment.

I already new that info.
Hi,then if you knew that you have to have the computer read in order to know WHY the light is on in order to correct it, and you KNEW that there are over 800 fault codes, why did you ask? NO ONE can magically guess as to which of the 800 fault codes has been detected.If you know the fault code, then you need to post it here. I am not a mind reader and cannot guess which it is.I am not sure exactly what you "EXPECTED". A magic cure? A wild guess in the dark?
