9-5 Wagon: Check engine light, but no codes stored?
Posted by westernny [Email] (more from westernny) on Wed, 11 Mar 2020 08:09:45
Driving at speed, check engine light comes on, blinking, car begins to lack normal acceleration power. Pulled over, shut down. Restarted, no check engine light, car drives/accelerates normally. Hooked up the code reader - no codes stored, no pending codes.
Indy says blinking check engine light generally indicates misfire, sign of impending DIC failure. I'm wondering why this didn't throw a code? Ordinary Chinese OBD reader that I use on all of our Saabs.
