05 Accord Hybrid engine light blinks, no code

Discussion in 'Accord' started by Kevin McMurtrie, May 8, 2005.

  1. I have an 05 Accord Hybrid. If I step hard on the gas at highway speeds
    when the tank is about 1/5 full, the engine light blinks. Twice it
    blinked for about 10 seconds. Once it blinked for about 2 minutes, even
    during auto-stop. The light then goes out and the dealership says
    there's no stored error code. According to my repair manual, the MIL
    only blinks during severe misfiring and it should store an error code.
    I don't hear or feel any misfiring while it blinks.

    My plan is to take it to the dealership again and ask them to replace
    the ECU if there's still no stored error code. Any other ideas? Car
    also has a stumbling idle sometimes.

    the dealer didn't do the CKP learn process

  4. Thanks, I'll ask about dealership prep the next time I'm there if it
    still hasn't stored any codes. I bought the car at a place where the
    repair department is well known for fraud and incompetence. They could
    have messed it up. (I'm using another dealership for service)

  5. Of course. Been through several tanks of 87 octane gas from various
    high volume, major brand stations. Car specifications are for 86 octane
    or higher.

  6. We have a winner! After much MIL blinking, the engine finally stored an
    error code for misfiring. The repair sheet says:

    "Find that the high RPM pulser was not fully initialized through the
    crank position sensor. Reinitialized the crank position sensor."

    It's annoying that the computer would get into a semi-working state like
    that. I'll see it it idles smoothly after the engine cools down.
