Question about 1991 Honda Civic
My ECU lights blinks seven quick times on my 1991 Honda civic DX. What does that mean?
Thanks for using FixYa. The check engine light is on because ECM has detected a fault with car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. The seven blinks means throttle angle or throttle position sensor has gone bad. If the malfunction indicator/check Engine lamp remains lit or lights while the engine is operating, the ECM has detected a malfunction and has stored a DTC in its memory. To access the DTC memory, connect a jumper wire between the check connector terminals. On Accord and Civic models, the check connector is located under the RH side of the instrument panel. On 90–91 Prelude models equipped with 2.1L engine, the check connector is located in the engine compartment. On all models, turn the ignition on. The ECM indicates stored DTC by flashing the malfunction indicator/Check Engine lamp. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
