    Thanks for information but I am noob and I do not know how I can check error code without a code reader (OBD0). I believe most people know that. Please give me a hint. ECU is under floor mat right then what should I do? Thanks

    The light flashing tells what code you have. You have code 16

    no. code 16 it would blink seven times. one long and 6 short. post the pattern that the ecu is blinking. it has to be more than one unless the ecu is bad

    Oh, my ecu blinked 16 short times non-stop, then repeated. I replaced my main relay and no more problems.

    not correct - OBD0 D-series ECUs do not have long and short blinks, only short blinks - 16 blinks is a problem in the fuel system - if the car is DPFI with code 16, the problem is usually with one of the injectors - common problem with DPFI - could also be the main relay, but usually if you have a problem with the main relay, it won't even run
