Check Engine Light Blinking in 2002 Honda Accord


Asked by Selena Dec 07, 2019 at 09:01 PM about the 2002 Honda Accord Value Package

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Honda accord 2.3L
4cylinder. A couple of weeks ago our
car did not want to start. After testing
a few things we replaced the coil pack
inside the distributor and the
distributor cap. We also replaced the
fuel relay sensor. The car started And
all was going well until this week. We
started having issues with Poor gas
mileage. We decided to replace the
spark plugs and the fuel pump. After
replacing the fuel pump and the spark
plugs our check engine light now
blinks, the car shakes when is on, the
car acts as if it will stall when we are in
park or coming to a stop. We had a
diagnostics reader plugged into the
vehicle and it is reading a misfire in
one and two. We know that since the
check engine light is blinking there is a
misfire happening somewhere. Where
we are not sure? We have replace the
fuel pump the fuel relay sensor the
spark plugs and the spark wires also
the distributor and the coil pack. Any

Here is a picture of the fuel pump before we changed it

Also I wanted to add that we had driven the car home after the fuel pump and spark plugs were changed during the drive home when accelerating the check engine light would stay on but wouldn’t continue to blink. But, as soon as we let off the gas or pushed on the break the engine light would start to blink again

Sounds like you crossed the two wires. (1 and 2 ). Check your sparkplug wires for that. Not to sound critical, but your throwing money at it? This does not "fix" it. Although a good tune up doesn't hurt. There are way's to check fuel pressure before you replace one. You are on the right path though!
