Malfunction Indicator Light
Any number of reasons... typically it's an error that is detected by the truck's computer system (ECU). These errors can be read by an OBDII code reader (they're pretty cheap on Ebay). Good Luck.
What can I do about it.
Nothing unless you get a code reader, and repair the problem.
