new to the board. I'm a new user, and so far pleased w/ the performance of the STI and still gaining confidence in RD's.
today i was driving up 95 and i noticed this message come on. I also noticed that the RD was maybe hotter than usual. I turned it off and turned it back on. It took about 5 minutes and the message came on again.
Next i tried blasting the AC full blast, and tilting my sunroof to get some airflow going. After about 20 minutes of this, it never came back on and it seems to work OK when i get K falses at shopping centers at about the same distance/measurement guaging by certain points and using the threat display.
Is this something i need to worry about? how good is the "self check" when my STI turns itself on and off. If it does not come back on again, should i not worry about it? Is it definitely out of calibration since this message came on? or is it like a hard fault in an ECM that can possible be erased like if you just get bad gas? Does the STI know if it is still in good working condition after a self check and the message does not come back on? I posted a reply to R Roy, but i'm worried if i should even trust it since this message came on. I now know i should turn it on after starting my car and turning it off before cutting it off. Before i just left it on and let it self turn off by keying off. Maybe i screwed w/ the electronics by doing that? did i just screw my warranty by doing that?
thanks for replies,
