Default engine light

looking for some guidance.I have a 1990 integra auto trans,lately the
engine light comes on after 5 minutes of driving.This wasnt a problem
in the summer but since its been colder the problem has appeared.
I would like to know what the problem might be before taking car to
dealership, last job i feel they ripped me off.

Thanks Bill Gavin

Peel the carpet back from the angled part of the passenger footwell. You'll
expose the ECU. On the surface of the ECU is a small round hole that has an
LED inside of it.

Now turn the ignition key to "II" and count the blinks of the LED. There
may be both long and short blinks, and more than one sequence. Sequences
are separated by two second pauses. Long=10, short=1.

Examples:
long short short = code 12
short short short <2 sec pause> long short <repeat> = codes 3 and 11

What codes do you get?
