Check Engine Light HELP!
Posted 16 January 2004 - 04:18 PM
I replace the ECU (with one from PAP), the car starts up, the idle is a bit high, but the check engine light is not on. Then it warms up, the check engine light comes on (d'oh!).
Again, I try and read the engine code, but it's not spitting anything out, and the light won't go out! I've tried to D-Check it, and Clear Memory, but that doesn't work either.
I NEED HELP!!!
To paraphrase Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller "Anyone, Anyone?"

The ECU won't take readings from the sond until the engine is at operating temp. That's why the light didn't come on until then.

To find the EGR Solenoid Valve, follow the vacuum line from the EGR Valve. The Solenoid Valve is on top of the intake manifold, on the passenger side, under the intake boot. It looks like a little box with two vacuum lines and tiny air filter attached. (this is all just from memory, so I might be slightly off, but I think it's enough for you to find it)

Setright - Thanks for the tip, I will look into it.
CIS Subaru - I know what you mean. I've had to replace quite a few of those on the other Subs I've had. But usually, the computer will tell you when one of those goes out. I have a spare, and I will replace it and see what happens.
I'm open to more ideas if anyone has any! And thanks!
