    The beater(91 Civic Lx) has been throwing the CEL and i finally got around to checkin it out.The CEL does not come on immediatley,it comes on prob 10-15 mins down the road.
    So this is what i have observed
    -Turn the key to "on " position
    -pulled carpet up and looked for the blinks.
    -it did 3 blinks with a pause between each then after the 3rd blink it went right into a consecutive,no pause 15 blink rampage.

    So is it a code 3 & 15? I want to make sure i am reading this correctly before i go looking for anything.
    Is it something else and am i reading it wrong?

    does it have any symptoms besides the CEL?

    is it auto?

    are you sure it was 15 blinks with no pauses??
    15 should be 1 long, then 5 short...

    No other syptoms other then that CEL.It only comes on about 10-15 mins down the road.It is a 91 Civic Lx 5spd.
    I am very sure it was 15 very fast,no pause blinks after the 3 long ones. I checked it 3x to be sure of what i was seeing. Those codes you came up with i found and checked the code 3 so far.I'll reset the ECU and take the car for a drive.

    alright, let us know how it goes...

    do you notice a change in power when the CEL comes on?

    perhaps below 20 codes are not 1 long and 1-9 short...?
