The malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) is located on the instrument panel cluster (IPC). The MIL informs the driver that an emission system fault
has occurred and that the engine control system requires service. The engine control module (ECM) monitors the MIL control circuit for conditions
that are incorrect for the commanded state of the MIL. For example, a failure condition exists if the ECM detects low voltage when the MIL is
commanded OFF, or high voltage when the MIL is commanded ON.
Conditions for Running the DTC
* The engine speed is greater than 80 RPM.
* The ignition voltage is between 10-18 volts.
* The ECM has commanded the MIL ON and OFF at least once during the ignition cycle.
* DTC P0650 runs continuously once the above conditions are met.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
The ECM detects an open, a short to ground, or a short to voltage on the circuit that controls the MIL.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
DTC P0650 is a Type B DTC.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC
DTC P0650 is a Type B DTC.
If the condition is intermittent, move the related harnesses and connectors with the engine operating. Monitor the scan tool Circuit Test Status
parameters for the component. The Circuit Test Status parameter will change from OK or Not Run to Fault if there is a condition with the circuit or

1. Ignition ON, observe the scan tool MIL Circuit Test Status parameters. Each of the MIL circuit test status parameters should display OK or
2. Ignition ON, command the MIL ON and OFF with a scan tool. The MIL should turn ON and OFF as commanded.
3. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC to verify the DTC does not reset. You may also operate the vehicle within the
conditions that you observed from the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data.
1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the P16 instrument cluster.
2. Ignition ON, verify that a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal 20 and ground.
瀚慖f the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal and
the ignition circuit fuse is open, replace the P16 instrument cluster.
