    check light that you are refering to is MALFUNCTION indicator light.


    and in HONDA there are approx around 30+ sensors and light can be because of any of those sensors.


    You take your car to some expert and he'll connect computer to your car and it will show which sensor is causing the problem.


    normally when the car is going and check light comes it is because of MAP sensor. MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE seonsor.


    its not a big deal. dont worry but get it resolve by the mechanic who understands the ECU codes.

    Any Karachi fellows really good with these sensor check ups? I get the check light but only sometimes after I convert the car on petrol. Its one-off really, but still I'd like to get it checked

    You running it on CNG??..If yes, then its alright..Engine Light often comes on in Honda's which are converted to CNG because the car's performance is'nt up to mark as compared to petrol and the Car's computer detects it...

    yeah like I said, connecting the scanner and finding out the code didnt take long but getting to the actual sensor so that it could be replaced took quite a while,cuz in my case the problem was that the manifold sensor had died itself & was not transmitting any signal at all so had to be replaced.Not like u pop the hood and its right there

    Omer as If engine check light appear while you driving on CNG , then this is normal and nothing to worry. Actually its due to O2 censor , because its program to work with petrol , so when you use gas it says wrong signal to ECU. and in result engine check lights is ON. but if you trun OFF your car and drive on petrol its disapper.
    If you face cehk wngine warning on petrol then you should check with Honda gus, Regards, ashar
