Default Check Engine Warning Flashed

Hey everyone. Had a weird instance 2 times yesterday where "Check Engine" read across the LCD panel. No check engine icon, just a quick flash. It also beeped. Didnt notice anything wrong. I have about 39 hours. Anyone experienced this? Could it be maintenance or a minor engine fault? Appreciate the help.

I had it once. The battery cables were a little loose. A few others on here have had loose battery cables as well.

Default Beeps when Cold

Was it your first cold start of the day?

I get a Beep when I first start up from dead cold (60-70degrees ) when I go above 40mph and hit any small waves.

It will do this even if I go slow for 5mins and slowly work up to speed.
Beep with check engine message that immediately goes away when I slow back down.
It stops doing it after I have warmed it up and then left it off for 10min. Won't do it the rest of the day.

Might be worth putting some locktite in the threads for the screws that help to hold it down so any vibration doesn't slowly loosen them.

Then again you can create your own 'inspection list' to run through on a consistent schedule insuring this is one of the things being looked at.

if it was a maintenance reminder it would have said maintenance required, I would have it scanned sometime to see what it was and have it cleared and if it comes back again then maybe you will see a pattern for a possible faulty sensor or something, if it ran normal when the check engine light was coming on then it is likely nothing major but not something to ignore

Probably the fuel sensor, mine does that sometimes, or goes off with half a tank in wakes. New one is on order.

Not the fuel sensor then. Check the battery connections, and if tight, take it to the dealer and have them run the codes.

Even checking other connections that lead to the battery might be worth checking although it could get quite time consuming.
