When is the code detected?
- An excessively high voltage is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM) through the MIL circuit under the condition that calls for MIL light up.
- An excessively low voltage is sent to ECM through the MIL circuit under the condition that calls for MIL not to light up.

P0650 Description
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is located on the instrument panel. When the ignition switch is turned ON without engine running, MIL will light up. This is a bulb check. When the engine is started, MIL should go off. If MIL remains on, the on board diagnostic system has detected an engine system malfunction.
