Question about 2007 Honda Civic GX NGV Sedan

2008 Honda Civic si

Check engine light and VSA lights are on. I got the codes ran and it says its the throttle position sensor. I wired subs up and pulled some fuses but they all seem to be fine. Is there andything that could have thrown this code or does the throttle body just need replaced?

thanks i have a 2007 si and was seeing alot the same prob. although i have lots of add ons. my light came on when i had a fuel ignition controller and harness hooked up to my car. so i took off the wiring harness and the light went off i then checked the harness for shorts and found no shorts then i put it back on without the f.i.c. hooked up and it still came back on so i took off the wiring harness and ran without the f.i.c. for a few months without a problem then out of the blue when i thought it was the harness it came on without it. TWICE. so now i am leaning towards a bad power signal being it only happens when every few months and more often when my wiring harness is on. so i am going to try a better grounding sys. and possibly a supply upgrade and i will let you know how it goes.

The TPS (Throttle Position Sensor as it is sometimes called) is located on the throttle body. It detects the position of the throttle, and hence is probably the most direct input a rider has to the BMS-C.

    Have the code reset or disconnect the negative battery terminal depress
    the brake to drain the reserve capacitors and reset the on board
    computer. This will clear all previous codes

    I don't know why you are replacing the
    Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), but it can be replaced without taking
    the throttle body off. It is located on the side of the throttle body
    and has a 3 pin connector.

You can replace the TPS without replacing the whole throttle body.
The TPS is held in by rivets instead of screws. Just use a hacksaw to carefully cut slots in the top of the rivets so you can use a screwdriver to back them out. When you put the new TPS in just use standard screws. Thanks

Thanks for the info... that fixed the problem with the VSA light going on. The error code had nothing to do with the VSA system. Error code said I was low on oil. The dealer I brought it to said the VSA system will not work when you are low on oil. When the VSA warning light comes on, you loose 80% of your engine power because of it. They changed the oil and I have not had the VSA warning light go on since.

It may be as simple as your oil condition or oil level. If you have poor oil in your engine the VTEC system will not operate properly and when RPMs reach 2800 or so it will buck. If everything checks okay with the oil have the code checked for your check engine light/VSA light.

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.
