Flashing check engine light
Just got my Honda Accord out of storage
after a couple years. Had to jump it and
when it started, the check engine light
immediately started flashing. It didn't do it
prior to storage, so what could be the
A flashing check engine light is warning you that the engine is misfiring and damaging the catalytic converter. Hold the engine at about 2000 RPMs for a few minutes and see if it stops flashing. If it's been in storage for an extended time period one of the spark plugs may not be "awake" yet. My 2000 Grand Prix does that sometimes when I first start it after an extended period of not being run. For future reference, disconnect the negative battery cable if you plan on not using the vehicle for a period of time. This will help prevent the battery from going dead while in storage. Hope that helps! Jim
I'll give it a try, thx
