    Most likely if it flashed 5 times the problem you are having is with MAP - manifold absolute pressure sensor. The only way to get the light to go out is to fix the problem or have it reset.

    If you reset the ECU and the CEL still comes on, then obviously you didn't fix the problem. Recheck the wiring and substitute the MAP sensor with a known working unit.
