MIL Function - 1997 SE
It was just a matter of time. All right, the check engine light'* on in my car, and it won't go away; when I turn on my car, there it is, lit up yellow. Now, while I'm waiting for my order from ScanTool.net to arrive, I'd just like to know how my MIL works.
Does it turn red or blink for severe problems?
Does it just turn on and stay on for moderately important stuff?
Does it turn on but then turn off when the car is shut off for the little things?
Can it turn off and clear the fault condition if the problem is corrected or no longer detected?
I'd just like to know how severe the problem is, so I can drive accordingly. (Like not yellow-lining the tach, for instance.)
