SES light blinks 5 times slowly

Recently I ran the manual procedure to read/reset codes. I got a 1402 code which I've been posting in another thread. I reset the code and a day later the SES is back on. When I do the procedure now all I get is the SES blinks slowly 5 times then stay's on. WTH is that?

Not sure on that one. Are your count times between steps correct?

Traded 10/10/11 for a 2012 Hyundai Genesis Track Coupe.

P1402 is unclear in the manual but is mentioned in the section titled "SRT set timing" after a self diagnosis has been run. This could indicate a MIL reset issue but i'm not 100 percent sure because it does not specify. hopefully this was not confused with P0420 which is a three-way catalyst function problem which could be the dreaded pre-cat failure. If the MIL is only blinking five times with nothing else chances are its giving you P0000 or something related which is the indication that the system is not working properly and needs to be taken to a stealership.

I just realized that a 1402 is the EGR system which is directly related with the pre-cat problems. Better get to a dealership asap. The 5 blinks is the indication of the computer going into safe mode possibly? Not sure. If it blinks while you drive it is a serious problem indication.
