Going through my new-to-me 2005 2.7 V6 Sonata. I was not expecting perfection but it looks like somebody may have been a bit devious. Was not necessarily expecting that. Even thought there was not check engine light on I decided to read the codes. There were 4 codes including a P0650 MIL control circuit malfunction. No biggie I figure since I know the car had a lot of work recently. I cleared the codes. Started it and ran it for a while. Then I read the codes again. Only 1 this time. It was the P0650. That's when the light bulb in my head went off and I turned the key on and noticed there was no check engine light on ever! It was failing it's bulb test!. Well at least that explains the P0650. Must be a burned out bulb, right?? How about NO bulb!! Now I'm betting it didn't just fall out. I'm also betting they didn't forget to put it in at the factory either. Ya know, I would have more respect for someone who just was honest and either told ya the bulb was taken out or better yet sold the car with the light on. The missing bulb is just above the one for the airbags which works fine. It looks like the bulb for the CEL is the same as for the airbag light. The markings on the airbag light are OSRAM 12v 1.5 W. Can anyone verify that? Thanks!
