"ECO" light does not come on and I got check engine light

Anyone has similar problem? No "ECO" light when I'm at constant speed or slow down. I already got service scheduled for technicians to look at but it's not till middle of next week. I have Accord Coupe V6 '08 (VCM automatic).

The car seems to be fine right now just like how it ran before "check engine" light came on. No noise, nothing.

I would like to know if someone has same problem so maybe I can get idea of what I'm getting into...

Thanks

I got nothin'. But, if you don't want to wait 'til the service date to find out what's happening, go to one of the national auto parts chain stores like Autozone. They've got OBDII code readers that they can hook to your car and read the code its throwing, and can tell you what it means. I think the service is free too. Best of luck.

the fujita, and possibly other CAI's (not AEM though), will cause the check engine light to come on. you can reset your car by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. that will clear up the CEL and allow your car to operate in VCM until the CEL comes back on. definitely take it in.

There's an ECO light on the Accord? This must be for the V6. I know my Odyssey had it.

a check engine light could mean a ton of things. If you simply don't tighten your gas cap (or forget it at the pump) you will have a check engine light. Bring it to autozone and they will scan it for free and tell you the code. Then you will have an idea what it is for. A gas cap would throw an EVAP code. If it is under warranty though, don't worry about it. A solid check engine light is usually nothing bad enough not to drive it until you get to the dealer, but a flashing CEL means turn the car off NOW! lol

You can also check the stickied thread 8th Gen FAQ for abbreviations. Check there before asking as some will flame you for asking questions where answers are easily found.

I would suggest checking the code but not clearing it at Autozone. If you clear the code the dealer might not be able to replicate the problem and give you crap.

I probably would not clear it either, just in case they try and pull some typical stealership bull ish and tell you that someone tampered with blah blah blah... Just have them read it so you know what you are dealing with. If it is an EVAP code, and your gas cap is missing or loose, you better believe the dealer will try and charge you a diag, so make sure you check that.

No Eco Light

I have the same issue with my '08 Accord V6. After some research, there are some folks who think it may be caused by one (or more) spark plugs going bad due to a previously documented excessive oil consumption problem. Look at this page regarding a class action suit; you might find it helpful.
