What does this usually mean? I know that sometimes not tightening the gas cap will do that, but I have not put in gas for some time.
Anyone know the reasons for this light coming on??? Can I still drive it for awhile (I'm suppose to go camping for 3 days soon!)
Thanks for any help!:confused::confused:

I believe that lamp is a catch-all. It's just telling you something is wrong.

Have you pulled the error code(s)? If not, I believe I've seen AutoZone, O'Reilly's, Advance Auto Parts, etc. state that they will pull them for you if you don't want to purchase a scan tool. Let your fingers do the walking before you drive to one of these places. With code(s) in hand you'll be in a better position to start trouble shooting.

I would get it addressed ASAP. May be nothing, could be big.

Good luck.

MIL Light Came On

Thank you for your reply! Luckily, I found out through this site that I can get a scan tool reading at many places and found a gas station mechanic who took a reading in just one minute and told me I got a PO 141 Code. He told me that the 02 sensor heater code malfunctioned and that I did not need to worry about this until my next auto inspection.
Do you agree that this problem can wait so long?
My car only 64,000 miles on it but I am driving it a very long distance soon.
