My wife told me that when she started the car the MIL light went on and stayed on. I checked it and it is still on. I read the manual which stated that this icon is related to an emission related malfunction. I called the local dealer but they just closed. Is it safe to drive the car with this light on? Has anyone else had this problem. Car is 10 days old with only 400+ miles. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Re: Help! Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) stays on. (calogero)

Have you filled gas up recently? You must click that fuel cap 3 times or more when you screw it back in. Not just once 3 or more times. That can send a "check engine" malfunction. Also, the dreaded "start your cold engine and drive it into the garage for 10 seconds" then shut it off can do it too.
