Default Engine won't start when check engine light is on

Hi All,

I'm new here.
I have a problem with my D16Z6.
This problem came without warning.
Normally, when on the ignition, the check engine will stay for 2 seconds then the light went off.
But for my case, I have to wait for 10-15 minutes, then the check engine will go off. If i try to start the engine when the check engine is still on, the car will not start, like no fuel is supply to the engine.
I had changed the main fuel relay pump and the spark plug, but it still won't work.

Any advise??

Thanks.

Hook up a scanner to your car and check the code the scanner is giving you.

HI all,


Thanks for your advise. Problem sloved. The ECU is the main problem.
After changing to another ecu, it works fine just as the check light off within 2 seconds.


THanks Bro
