Table 1. Abbreviations and Terms

* As a light bulb check and system check, the check engine light will come on for about 5 seconds when the ignition is turned on. If the CEL/AWL remains on, or comes back on, the self diagnostic system has detected a problem. If the problem goes away, the light will go out, but a trouble code will be stored in the ECM/ECU as an inactive code.
† As a light bulb check and system check, the stop engine light will come on for about 5 seconds when the ignition is turned on.
