Could you please confirm for me that if you turn your key to ON and do not start the engine, that the CEL comes on along with the rest of the lights on the dash?
I can swap back to my USDM ECU and this is the case. The CEL is ON with the key ON and the motor OFF. Then when I start the car, the CEL goes away along with the oil light and all the other cluster lights that go away when you start the car.
D-Rodman if you could confirm that for me, it would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry dude, computer was on but I was building a desk for the home office.
Just checked what you asked to confirm, with the ignition in the on position and the engine is off, check engine light, oil, etc, all illuminate.
Sorry to confirm the worst for ya, happy to help.
