What Is A MIL?
The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is the light often referred to as the Check Engine light. You also may still see it referred to as the Service Engine Soon light.

Note: The MIL (Check Engine Light) may be red, amber, or yellow.

The MIL will come on when a problem that sets a fault code is detected.
