    Check engine light flashes then goes out

    Just got my SI it has 180 miles on it and I noticed that when the key is in the ON position but the engine is not started the check engine light is ON like it should be. But about 10 seconds go by and it starts flashing then the light goes out. Wondering if this is normal or not. Thanks.

    Have you checked through your manual? I believe 3 seconds is the time when it should turn off, so if it is blinking at 10 seconds, I'd take it in and get it looked at. How have you been driving so far in the break in period?

    Pretty conservative. I have gotten on it once or twice. But just enough to get the vtec going.

    I just thought as long as the engine is not running and the key is in the on position the check engine light should be on.

    Mine just stays on solid for a while then goes off, no flashing at all before it turns off.

    Well this is what I found. I think mine blinks because it is new and has not had time to set its readiness codes. This is what I found. Plus I unplugged the battery yesterday while installing the ambient light kit.
