Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Eliminates Check Engine Light. If you're running an off-road H-Pipe or X-Pipe, SR Performance Plug-in MIL Eliminators will shut off the annoying Check Engine Light (CEL) on your dash. These MIL, short for Malfunction Indicator Light, Eliminators shut off CELs by blocking the codes generated by the rear O2 sensors. The codes are triggered when running an off-road Mid-Pipe or some Mid-Pipes equipped with ultra high-flow cats.

Exceptional Build. These SR Performance Plug-in MIL Eliminators are assembled from state of the art electronic components and include rugged, plastic plug-in connectors that easily insert into the stock wiring harness.

Easy Installation. Installation is straight forward and simple. Plug the MIL eliminator into the corresponding connectors. One end will plug into the oxygen sensor and the other end will plug into the Mustang's wire loom.

Application. This pair of SR Performance Plug-in MIL Eliminators are designed to be used on all 1996-2004 Mustangs, including V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models.

Technical Note. Minor modifications to the "clip" may be needed for installation on some GT, Mach 1 and Cobra Mustangs.

Thought I avoided that nagging S.E.S. Light but after about 100mi post H-Pipe install it set the codes. Cleared coded installed and no problem since. A must have for H or X pipe installation.

how many sets are needed, i have long tube headers and x pipe installed

  • You will only need one set of the Plug-in MIL Eliminators (96-04 All) for them to work.

Will this eliminator make the code go away. Im receiving a code saying Bank 1-2 running lean. Will this eliminate this problem?

Yayo

  • Bank 1-2 running lean codes has to do with the fuel-to-air ratio. To fix that you will need to have a tune to correct that.

does this work on 2003 f150 even though they have the same engine as the gt 4.6l v8?

fordster

  • While some items can be used in different vehicles as they may have the same engines and/or appliances as a the Mustang, we have only tested this item in Mustangs, thus we can only confirm fitment for the listed vehicles under the fitment tab.

I HAVE A 2002 FORD MUSTANG GT 4.6L MY ? IS DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE ANY OXYGEN SENSOR FIRTS UPER OR LOWER?

mangohead

  • For the Plug-in MIL Eliminators to work, all of the oxygen sensors must be working and receiving a signal. If the oxygen sensors are faulty, the Plug-in MIL Eliminators will not clear the check engine light. If your oxygen sensors are faulty, they would need to be replaced with functioning units for the Eliminators to operate properly.

Are these MIL Eliminators capable of allowing a car to pass a SMOG test when bank 1 and 2 lean codes are present but recently cleared? Hopefully that last part makes sense.

PowerPony

  • The Plug-in MIL Eliminators will keep your check engine light off for your two rear O2 sensors. But, whether your car passes your local inspection or SMOG test depends on the laws and regulations in your area.

I have an O/R H pipe and I'm getting P0430. Will these clear the engine light for that code or is it only for P0420?

Pearson

  • The Plug-in MIL Eliminators should eliminate that check engine light and code. That code is for you O2 sensor reading too much air coming through the exhaust, which is understandable when upgrading to an O/R H pipe.

    I purchased these to go along with the install of a MAC Pro-Chamber on my 96 GT. I have nothing but good things to say about them. They work exactly as they should, and simply plugged into place. I have had no problems with a check engine light since installing.

    Plug and Go

    AM is the Best to start out with! I had Codes p0420/p0430 coming up (Catalyst System Efficiency below Limit).After plugging in MILs, I had code p0136 (O2 Sensor circuit fault). I called AM said it maybe be a bad MIL. They got me new ones right away. Next day no codes and passed emissions.

    Awesome, works great!

    They are a quality product and connected to my set-up with ease, a lot better then the set of MILs I previously had that got damaged. What makes these better is they are flexible and can conform to however you need to secure them to the underside of the car. Great product and if you are looking for them, don't buy them used.. get them here and you won't be disappointing. If your check engine light is on when you install these, disconnect the battery which will reset the code.

    Worked great on a Contour

    We have a 1997 Contour with a V6 engine, and were getting a "check engine" light while running very clean. In fact, the light was the only reason we were failing a California smog check. Since the registration had to be renewed a month before we would have access to any significant amount of money for catalytic converters and such, this was a problem. Enter the MIL eliminator. My husband probably spent longer getting under the car and then back out than he did on the actual install, which was very much plug-and-play. The parts fit into the car perfectly and installation was so easy I probably could have done it (and I'm very much not a car-repair girl). Once the test cycle completed with no "check engine" light, we passed smog check and renewed registration with no further hiccups. We do plan to finish repairs, but managed to buy ourselves time to come up with the money, since the tailpipe emissions were drastically below limits.

    Works great, exactly as expected. If you have an off-road x-pipe these are a must. You dont want to ride around with the check engine light on, if something else were to start going wrong you would never know it till it was to late.

    Had persistent P0420 and P0430 codes due to upgraded exhaust (full length headers, high flow cats and Flowmaster catback exhaust). Added these into the O2 sensor line for rear sensors and problem went away. Passed TN emissions with no issues.

    MIL Eliminator challenges

    Used the MIL Eliminators after the install of my JBA catless H-pipe. The connectors went together fine. My engine light came on after driving several hours wth a 'Stuck Lean' code the driver's side rear sensor. This was a sensor with a MIL Eliminator installed. I cleared the code and drove several more hours and the code returned. I notified AM and was immediately sent two replacements. I am very impressed with AM's customer service! I installed a new MIL Eliminator and received another 'Stuck Lean' code. I replaced with the second MIL Eliminator AM sent as a replacement and this appeared to work. At this point I went with an SCT tuner and look for the O2 sensor errors to be gone. I read on various message boards there are occasional issues with faulty MIL Eliminators but was surprised to have two not do the job. For that reason I can not recommend the MIL Eliminators but can easily recommend AM due to their efforts to correct the situation.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      This is something we very rarely hear about and I'm very sorry you received 2 plugs that didn't work. I'm glad the replacement set at least gave you a completed set that worked. Had it not for some reason, we'd have shipped you another with no problem. Your decision to go the tuner route in the end will not prove to be a disappointing choice! You will get the best performance from your mid-pipe as well as any other mods you decide to make in the future! Enjoy it!

    Easy plug-in solution to your check engine light!

    If you are installing or already have an off-road (no catalytic converters) mid pipe installed on your car, then this is the best way to remove that annoying check engine light. Installation couldn't be easier. Just plug in and you're done! Comes in a pack of two and is a male/female inline kit. A must have for any car without catalytic converters!

    not to bad

    the only problem i had yet it was not a big deal was the two alignment tabs on the side of the connectors they would not plug in. just take a pair of snips and cut them off and they fit fine. if your MIL does not go off unplug your negative battery cable or take a scan tool and clear your codes that should keep it off if your codes are due to your catalytic converters.

    OK

    I ordered this item to go along with my Pypes O/R X pipe. Very easy install, clips right in. Fit was ok, but I had to use zip ties to hold them up from hanging below the body line. After install I still had the check engine light illuminate at times even after resetting. Over all good product, could have been other issue.

    Works great on my 4.6L Cougar!

    Purchased these eliminators for my '96 Mercury Cougar XR7 with the 4.6L V8. The cats are good but my sensors were sending inefficiency codes and tripping the check engine light, which was preventing me from renewing my plates (Illinois and their dumb emissions laws) Ordered these eliminators, installed them, and I'm good to go! Plugs were a perfect match. Highly recommended!
