Question about 2008 Honda Accord
I passed from a couple of roads having a lot of rain water. Now after 4-5 hours, when i started my car. Check Engine Light (emission Control System) is on and the dashboard display goes off and then on after the interval of 4-5 minutes. please advice.
Wait about a day and let the car dry out some. Then reset the check engine light by unhooking the negative cable from the battery for 15 minutes or more. Hook it back up and see if the cel even comes back on. It probably wont but if it does, go to parts store and get the code and go from there. Shouldnt be a big deal, car is prob ok. Just get code if it does happen to come back on and reveal the year, make and model of the car and the code. But you need to reset the light 1st to see if it comes back on.

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.
Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.

SOURCE: will not pass emissions test
the light is an emissions code in there sometimes its a oxygen sensor or the egr valve gets clogged in hondas...you need to retrieve the code to narrow the problem down

SOURCE: Engine Light On
You need to connect the data port to an automotive scanner which will read the code and report why the light went on. You can pay $75 for this service at the dealer, or you can get it done free at an auto parts store such as Advance Auto, maybe Pep Boys. Give them a call.

I would send the car for a smoke test for the emissions leak...Find out where the leak is comming from..Repair it..Reset the codes, then do a drive cycle and see what happens...
