    Hey Guys, Im new to the forums and have a question for anyone to answer.

    My 89 Crx wont start, its a 1.5L HF. Engine cranks, has spark and fuel. I looked at the ECU and its blinking 16 times quickly, pause, then 16 times again...does this over and over again. It has brand new spark plugs and wires.

    Wondering if it could also be the main relay...

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks Guys.

    You sure it's 16? Because 16 would be one long blink and six quick blinks.

    Yeah, Honda ECUs don't go over 10 same-style blinks in a row.

    I had error 17 once, and I think that it flashed 17 times...

    I could be wrong

    As long as it's pgm-fi, it won't go over 9.
