i have a new truck now. the fedex truck stopped in the day before yesterday and dropped off a new brain. 15 min to get the old one out and 10 min to get the new one in. put the battery cable on, jumped in turned on the key, the fuel pump ran for a few secs and stopped. turned the key the rest of the way and vavoom! no eng light on, runs nice and smooth.
i drove it about 50mi yesterday, the light did come on but it went out too? but now i can check codes. thanks to all and really to rcmustang, hes the one that called it right.
aloha, docmot

No prob, pal. If the CEL comes on momentarily, it could be egr related. A bad egr posistion sensor can cause that. It happens on fox Mustangs a lot.
