    Default blinky engine light

    Once my 1991 Nissan Maxima warms up, if I leave the car for 5 min, get in, start it up, my check engine light comes on. It stays on untill I start driving, then it goes off and stays off. Will the "memory" store it so I won't feel silly if I have it read? Any ideas as to whats going on? (Manual 72020)

    Hi Warfrog,

    If there's a problem with one of the sensors in the engine management system (or a problem with the parameter that the sensor monitors) a code should be stored in the ECU. Section 11 in Chapter 4 or your manual explains how to output any stored codes.
