I strongly second that opinion, but it doesn't necessarily have to be a 
hose on the distributor:  My ultimate idiot light went out also, and I 
found out that a small vacuum hose behind the engine had come off.  (BTW:  
I also agree that it's annoying and completely useless -- mine is basically 
always on until I hit the highway!)
