Yeah, except that the 4KQ doesn't have CIS-EIII. It has plain old CIS-E.
There is no code to dump because the ignition and fuel system ECUs don't
have such capability. In fact, the 4KQ isn't supposed to have such a warning
light at all. Now, the 4-cylinder 4KS from 85-87 has a digital knock
sensing ignition system and there is such a light that illuminates
when the knock sensor detects pinging. The 4KQ doesn't have knock sensors.
Are you the original owner? Perhaps someone has swapped instrument
clusters from that of a 4KS, or parts of the instrument cluster?
If such is the case, what that light is showing is perhaps really
another function, because the wiring is different between the 4-cylinder
and 5-cylinder cars. Seat belt reminder?
