On the first ride of the season the Check Engine Light came on and the engine sounded like it was missing. After a few starts the Check Engine Light went out.

We checked for fault codes and it read No Active Codes.

Does the computer store old codes that need to be read with a diagnostic tool or do all codes show up on the dash instrument?

only active codes show on dash
when the CEL is on is when you check the code
do not shut off motor, 18s are hard to read
you must flash headlights in the proper time
procedure is in the owners manual
you will need a scan tool to see saved error codes
on all years

Welcome from Oregon
Codes are always fun to deal with.
Did you hit the throttle at all raising the rpm for the clutch to engage?
If so, could be belt/clutch related.
Need to check for codes by holding down the "M" button and flashing your lights fast 4-6 times. Codes should appear on your gauge cluster.

Thank you!

Next questions:
1. Is there an easy way to drain the fuel tank? The fuel that is in there is from last season and am wondering if that could have triggered something.

2. Is there a good adapter cable to make an obd2 compatible with the Can-Am? I am trying to avoid spending several hundred dollars on a new diagnostic tool if possible.
