Question about 2003 Honda Element

Open Question

We have a 2003 Honda Element with code P2647. Oil recently changed but could be Vtec Pressure Switch? Where is this located?

The vehicle seems to be losing vacuum pressure when you accelerate hard?

Sounds like an ignition component failure check for proper resistance through primary and secondary ignition coil windings, refer to service repair manual for exact specs, also the ignitor magnetic pick up may be not up to snuff, the only other ignition component to replace or check is the ignition module and/or plug wires themselves, sometimes when extreme demand is put on the ignition system the plug wires must be high quality and completely isolated from one another. Spark plug wires when routing cannot come in contact with one another in the slightest proximity.

SOURCE: i have a honda 1993 the oil light is on .I change

10 psi minimum at idle and 50psi at 3000 rpm are needed for the light to be off. If you have this check for a bad ground wire and reset the CEL.
Good luck...i hope this helps

P2647 on Honda accord 2003 what is and where is located in the engine?


The code is for the VTEC(variable timed exhaust camshaft) oil pressure solenoid. If it is a 4 cylinder engine, the solenoid is located on the back of the cylinder head near the fuel injector rail. Most of the time you can simply clean the screen on the solenoid to cure the problem. Also, too heavy weight of oil can cause the system to malfunction. Make sure to use a 5w30 engine oil,Honda prefers Castrol.

What does it mean when the vsa indicator and the engine emblem appears at the same time with code p2647?


I am not sure why they would both come on at the same time but the code P2647 means - Rocker Arm Oil Pressure Switch (VTEC Oil Pressure Switch) Circuit High Voltage.

So first thing first in diagnosing this code is to check the oil level.
Have the engine run for a bit and get warm to build up proper oil pressure. Then turn engine off and let the vehicle sit for a minute or two. Have the vehicle on level ground and check the oil level and condition.
If the level is low then top up till it is at the full line. When the engine oil level is low it may not have enough oil pressure to control and activate the VTEC system thus causing this code.
If the oil is super dark and black then you may be due for an oil change. (should be done around every 5000km.)

Have a 2004 CRV hesitates or jumps on excelleration code 2647 is what it reads. I have already changed the oil pressure switch but it is still doing the same thing. Any help would be appreciated.


P2647 VTEC oil pressure switch circuit high. The letter P stands for power train.When a code P2647 comes in the shop VTEC oil pressure switch usually fixes the problem. In front of the vehicle on the right hand side there is a VTEC solenoid valve one one the intake.Right next to it is the VTEC oil pressure switch . Both have grey connections. If you complain about rough idle then yes service solenoid (they do plug up from low end oil or lack of oil maintance).The code is circuit.that means that battery voltage has to be present. When the code P2647 appears VTC is disabled and valve timing is fixed at a fully ****** position.This is where you say you feel like its running out of gas is from.Switch is you just replaced it, a electrical diag has to be performed.From switch to PCM

My honda accord 2003 V6 hiccups when I step on the gas, and the right signals do not work. The code P1259 came up and I was wondering excatly what does that mean?


This is an error code related to VTEC related Honda engines. I am sending you a little reading on that error code.. Best of Luck..


The Check Engine Light (CEL) is on. Trouble code P1259. Tests/Procedures: 1. Locate the Variable Timing/Lift Control (VTEC) pressure switch, on the back of the cylinder block, by the oil filter.

2. The VTEC oil switch is normally closed and grounds the reference voltage from the Engine Control Module (ECM) on the Blue/Black (BLU/BLK) wire.

3. At approximately 4000 RPM, and when driving the vehicle, the VTEC system should turn on. To turn the system on, the ECM energizes the VTEC Solenoid valve and it allows oil pressure into the intake valve rocker arms, the oil pressure opens the VTEC oil pressure switch so the ECM can verify that VTEC did turn on correctly.

4. The code will set below 4000 RPM if the reference voltage is not grounded. The code will set above 4000 RPM if the VTEC oil switch does not open.

5. If the code sets at 4000 RPM or higher, the problem can be a low oil level or pressure, or a malfunction in the VTEC assembly. Potential Causes: Low Engine Oil
Plugged Oil Passage
Insufficient Oil Pressure
Plugged Oil Screen
Insufficient Oil Volume
Malfunctioning VTEC Oil Pressure Switch
Defective VTEC Solenoid
Tech Tips: When the P1259 code sets at 4,000 RPM or higher, always verify that the engine oil level is full. Also, if there is an oil pressure or volume problem, always verify that the oil pan is not pushed up and is too close to the oil pickup tube, causing an oil volume problem. Be very careful when supporting the engine with the oil pan.

My car is a 2000 vtech honda civic. Engine light stays on even after I took the car to the mechanic and changed the oxygen sensor, which they said was the problem. I took it to another place and I am...


TELL ME WHAT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CODE YOU ARE GETTING.CODE SCAN AND TELL ME WHAT CODE YOU ARE GETTING.MOST VTECH ENGINE HAS PROBLEM WITH VTEC SOLENOID OR VTEC OIL PRESSURE SWITCH.MOST TIME CHECK THE OIL PRESSURE BY REMOVING VTEC OIL PRESSURE SWITCH FROM THE LOCK UP SOLENOID AND CONNECT AN ADAPTER BETWEEN THE SWITCH AND THE SOLENOID. BUT I CANT SAY ITS YOUR VTEC SYSTEM UNTIL YOU CODE SCAN CAR.OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 50 PSI @ 3000 RPM OR 85 PSI @3000 RPM.

Check engine light on on 2005 honda accord coupe. 4cylinder. code is p2647 said trouble shooting do all repairs on vehicles but do not know that code.


p2647 is rocker arm actuator A- bank 1 stuck on--- to fix it should be the VTEC oil pressure switch. That switch will be on the cylinder head. Towards the windshield and passenger's side (I think).

Go to www . hondapartsdeals . com {remove the spaces when typing}

Go to parts, enter your car's info. System: Engine Component Vtec Oil control valve. That diagram should help a lot.

Good Luck.

P1259 is a code for vtec malfunction usually cause by a bad vtec solenoid, vtec pressure sensor, low oil level, bad connection. Was oil change done? May want to check the oil level. P1166 is a code for a primary o2 sensor 1.

I have a Honda 2004 CRV - the repair ( OBD II) code is P2647 - what does that mean?


P2647 VTEC Oil Pressure Switch Circuit High Voltage - With Automatic Transmission Basicallly the sensor has gone bad or an oil passage has become blocked.

**. Locate the Variable Timing Electronic Control (VTEC) pressure switch on the end of the cylinder head. Honda has had problems with the VTEC oil pressure switch, there is an updated part number for the vehicle (37250-PNE-G01). On this vehicle the VTEC oil pressure switch can fail at any RPM.
2. The VTEC oil switch is normally closed, and grounds the reference voltage from the Engine Control Module (ECM) on the Blue/Black (BLU/BLK) wire. If the code sets at idle - 2500 RPM - and the Brown/Yellow wire has a good ground, then suspect a faulty VTEC oil pressure switch.
3. At approximately 2500-4000 RPM and when driving the vehicle, the VTEC system should turn on. To turn on the system, the ECM energizes the VTEC Solenoid valve and it allows oil pressure into the intake valve rocker arms, the oil pressure opens the VTEC oil pressure switch so the Engine Control Module (ECM) can verify that the VTEC did turn on correctly.
4. The code will set at idle to 2500 RPM if the reference voltage is not grounded. The code will set above 2500-4000 RPM if the VTEC oil switch does not open.
5. If the code sets at 2500-4000 RPM or higher, the problem can be a low oil level or pressure, or a malfunction in the VTEC assembly.
Potential Causes: Low Engine Oil
Plugged Oil Passage
Insufficient Oil Pressure
Plugged Oil Screen
Insufficient Oil Volume
Malfunctioning VTEC Oil Pressure Switch
Defective VTEC Solenoid
