Hello,

There are several reasons the MIL light can be on: (Sample list)

You will need to have the Engine Control Module Scanned to see what the codes are. Not
all scan tools (generic OBDII) will show all stored codes, or have a listing of what they
mean.

The best aftermarket (dealer equivalent) scan tool that is available to the public, is made
by http://ross-tech.com/

Once you have retrieved the stored codes (if more than one), post a new question
with the code in the subject line... so that you can then get specific help to those
specific items.

Hope that helps,

Thomas
