light has not come on at all , the other day my battery and
my alternator went car totally dead should the malfunction

...could it be that with the dead battery, someone tried a jumpstart...only they reverse jumped only to cause failures of the alternator...etc...why the relays are missing is a mystery...Driving through Nevada and need service from a road- rat...can happen and you never really know if what they are doing to your car is legitimate~ recommend get a cheap rebuild, or good rebuilt alternator, assure the battery connections are without corrosion...and with the renewed electricals should be okay then~ 2006 is a long time to go without major mechanical work needed~

Thank you possibly helpful, my main question was should the malfunction code light have come on

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

There is a dedicated warning light on your dash for battery/ alternator issues, not a code. That lit should have come on to warn you about alternator failing.

of course this is an OBD-II vehicle...connect the obd-II reader and "clear codes"~ will inform you what the deal is~ bout 15 bucks from newegg~

Malfunction code light has been coming on ever since I bought the vehicle 4 months ago I have replaced the alternator and the battery just this past month now once again the malfunction code light keeps coming up flashing and then shutting off when it does it runs like crap

Everytime I bring it there they say nothing wrong with the car no code lights coming up they have cleared it a couple times

possibly, you filled it past the first click...this plays hell with the charcoal and evaporative devices....so it will go away eventually with use~ if not suspect one of the oxygen sensors...but would report on the OBD-II...a defective evaporative system would too... might make sure the gas cap is sealing properly~
