    i don't think it's a problem unless it stays on.

    When you turn the Ignition on the EML illuminates as the ECU self checks, it will go out when engine started if all is OK

    Mine's done this a few times.

    It first appeared when trying to start the car and didn't fire up.
    It goes after about x amount of successful starts (about 2 weeks for me).

    The dealers couldn't find anything wrong when I took it in.
