FI light stays on. If the bike is hot when I fire it up, I have to hold the revs at about 3000 rpm for about 5 seconds before it will idle.Otherwise it willjust die. It's at this point the FI light comes...

hi you will have to remove the seat cowling next to the ecm (black box left side with lots of wires going to it) you will see a black connector that is not pluged in to anything with the ign switch off and the kill switch set to run bridge the 2 wires with a split pin or a piece of wire turn the ign switch on and count the blinks on the dash a long blink counts as ten.to remove the codes pull out the bridge while the light is flashing.then run the bike and when the light comes on check the code agian write down the number of blinks and give dobles 02086687810 a call im sure they will tell you wot the code is

My FI indicator light stay on on my 2001 honda cbr, what does that mean

It means a fuel system problem. You have to count the blinks and the number will correspond with the code number. You will have to take it to a Honda shop or other cycle shop if you can't count the blinks, or you don't have the code book information.

Dashboard lights and warning chimes.

The computer detected a fault. You SHOULD NOT drive it around with that blinking, or you will regret it. Take it to the dealership immediately and have them pull the code.

On the gage cluster what does F1 or FI mean

The Fl lamp lights up when the computer finds a malfunction in the programmed Fuel Injection. There are 33 different codes. The offending code is denoted by how many times the Fl light blinks.
Nine of the 33 codes do not show symptoms since the engine still runs okay. If the Fl light just stays on then the engine will not run because the computer will not let it run, (except in two cases).
"MIL" translates as "Malfunction Indicator Lamp ".

This is what the service manual says:

" The PGM-Fl MIL denotes the failure codes ( the number of blinks from 0 to 33 ). When the indicator lights for 1.3 seconds it is equivalent to 10 blinks. For example, a 1.3 second illumination and two blinks ( 0.5 second X 2 ) of the indicator equals 12 blinks. Follow code 12 on page 5-26.
When more than one failure occurs, the MIL shows the blinks in order of the lowest number to the highest number. For example, if the indicator blinks once, then two times, two failures have occurred. Follow codes 1 and 2 on page 5-12."

BOTTOM LINE > A blinking light that can't be understood, combined with instructions that can't be understood make the entire Honda "malfunction alert system" totally worthless and a pain in the neck to the owner. Why can't someone in Japan write a computer program that would render something like " Code 23 error " instead of a blinking light that means nothing because it is not user friendly.

You asked what the FI light means. It means you are forced to take your bike in for service at a Honda shop and pay big bucks to the dealer for something you could have done yourself for $12.00. This is a built-in money maker for Honda dealers.

92 Honda Accord

Blinking light means there is a trouble code.There is a procedure to manually pull codes from the computer.Have the codes checked,have them written down.It could be just shift solenoids,or could even be something more serious,but thats the starting point.
