EML light came on, any common issue?

Tried to search, but couldnt find a common thing to look for or do.

No loss of power, EML just came on.

Will a peake reader pull any info for this?

Try swapping out your front TPS sensor ( There's two.... one in-front next to the oil filter and one on the bottom near the starter ). See if that gets rid of the EML Light.

Try your scanner, if it doesn't pull anything go to an autos store and get a code scan. That'll lead to towards the problem. Usually throttle sensors with these but it could be anything. Start with a code read.
