I see no light flashing or at all
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok that could have been for the earlier model 1990 accord.Since there is no bulb the most common issues are either a faulty distributer including igniter and coil and base to clogged egr passages to timing being off to a clogged cat these need to be checked next.Also there are issues with the main relay located under drivers dash cutting power to the fuel pump.I would check the cat,egr passages and the ecm itself.There is also a ground on the thermostat housing make sure its secure and tight.Heres the egr port cleaning.To check the cat disconnect the exhaust before the cat and see if it stays running.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
