Default RSX Engine Warning Light On After Engine Stall

Hi,

My daughter's engine warning light came on after she stalled
the engine. It has been over a week and it is still on. Is this
normal? Does it require attention? She has a 2003 RSX
S-Type, manual 6 speed.

Thanks,
Gary

If the check engine light is on it should have set a code. Have the
code read out to see what the error problem is. Many Auto Parts stores
will do it for free.

It's probably a transient set by the stall.

Pull the 15A ECM fuse. It's fuse #17, the end one of the group of three
right at the very back or the very front (I forget which) of the under-
hood fuse box. Wait 30 seconds then put it back.

This will clear any DTC's and turn the light off.

If the light subsequently turns back on again, then you need to get the
error code read by somebody with an OBD-II scanner.

Only 30 seconds?
Shouldn't it take longer than that,like maybe 10 minutes or more?
Perhaps you meant 30 minutes instead of 30 seconds?

OK, thirty minutes then. Won't hurt anything.

Seriously though, I doubt Honda is using caps with a 30-minute persistence.

Coincidence. There's no connection between the stall and the oxygen sensor.

I'll bet it was a O2 sensor heater code. That's the most common type.

She called the local dealer (Acura of Boston) who told her to
bring the car in. It was a bad O2 sensor at $600 to replace.
Why would this appear only after a stall?

Aren't RSX's new enough that the O2 sensor would be covered under warranty?
Like the emissions warranty?

Not for an oxygen sensor.

O2 sensors are covered under the automaker's routine powertrain warranty,
which for Honda is 3/36. And this car is an '03.

seems that an O2 sensor would affect emissions,thus be under it's longer
warranty.
Ah,well.....
