    malfunction indicator light

    Malfunction indicator came on today - kind of surprised me. It did this on start up. I shut the van off, then restarted and it did not come back. Drove it a hundred kilometers and it has still not come back on. I am not taking any chances and will take it in to the dealer Wednesday to see if they can figure out why it came on in the first place.

    Anyone else had this light come on, or any clues as to what it may be?

    Have you recently fueled up? Maybe the cap was not tightened properly? Or maybe the cap was off and someone started and stopped the vehicle (like if you line up at the pumps and realise that you are on the wrong side of the van?)???

    Hey Gumby. I filled up a few days before the light went on. Wouldn't think it would take that long for the computer to figure it out. Also, I did not go re-tighten the cap, simply restarted vehicle and no more light.

    it should store a fault code in the ecu so you can have it checked out at the dealership to see what that was, as a precaution. but it does sound like a loose gas cap issue.
