acecadillac Posted January 21, 2006 Report Share Posted January 21, 2006 From time to time I get the Check engine soon light on. My information centre display is only half working (half digets displaying) so I can't get the codes. Any help with the info Centre? Any other way to get the codes? In fact the first time I got the check engine light was the day after (20 min ride), which in fact is the first time I tried to reveal the codes. Started to think revealing the codes caused the problem. Or I thought it could be from the fact that, that night I drove the car very hard. Lots of WOW. This was when another member of this site (JC) came over to feel what a lower STS felt like with Super Turbo exhaust. The next time it came on was when I gave the car a little throttle when I had a hard time to start it. You seen I have this other long term problem. It does'nt happen often, but sometimes when the car is warm and it doen't ignite on the first try, it won't start unless I leave it for about 15sec. Kind of like a Carb flooding. I was impatient about this one day and decided to hold the peddle down a bit to help out. This worked to get the car started. However the car started to miss, hicup etc... for about two miles. The Check Engine Soom Light came back on. I stopped and restarted the car. Light went away and stalled again. Got it started again and drove home but the Check Engine Soon light came back on. No real drivability problem though. Next day car started a little rough in the cold and stalled with the Check Engine light on in first 100 feet. Left the car for a week and she started with no problem. Drive for about 20 minutes and the light came back on. Started to flash a little too. Stopped and restarted and no problem. Next day no problem until after driving a little hard. Well very hard wow. The car missed a little then The Check Engine light came back on. Restarted then car and no problem. Drive to work today and no problem. I don't drive this car much anymore. Maybe once every two weeks. I thought that had something to do with it. My plugs are only Two years old with only 20k on them. Gas mileage is off about 2 mpg. I only get 14, but very little highway and a heavy foot. Any thoughts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
