that code is for a Vtech system malfunction. check your oil level if its ok you should bring the car to honda unless you can handle a multimeter and have oil presure gages and the basic knowledge of how to use these items.

SOURCE: needs my crv honda sound stereo code

You will need to take the car to a deal and verify you are the rightful owner of the radio as this is the purpose of the code.
Best of it. While at the dealer why not ask about any recalls on your car?

The reset code for the factory installed radio is on a sticker in the glove box. The sticker has 2 set of numbers. The number set with 5 digits is the reset code for your factory installed radio.

SOURCE: What does code P1259 stand for a honda accord

I believe it indicates a problem with the VTEC system.
That's Honda's variable valve timing, etc. If you have
this code with check engine light on and oil level is
good, it's a rather expensive fix. Just happened on my
05 and fortunately I have an extended warranty because
they wanted a $1000 plus for the fix.

2002 crv v tech p1259

1259, ok, (ONLY>?) no others? what engine? I4 or V6....????
some cheap scan tools cant see factor codes, P1 or P2. and are important.
car has immoblizer , right, key IMMO,
key takes to ign. switch. (try the key with only a key and no ring)
***** key test. and other keys.
this is accurate, lots of other paces, wild guessing. use this.

so is the V in Vtech, or VVT varible valve timing.
its an oil pressure error in the VVT parts.
(as alway)
it can be,
1: oil pressure is wrong (wrong oil?)
2: bad valve.
3: bad sensor. (lies)
4: bad wires. (and connctions.)

im crude opinion, the PCM sees wrong oil pressure at a certain
RPM (when switching VVT mode) and sets the DTC.

I have a code popping up as p1259 i have gotten some info on it i was told to get a new oil pressure switch. is that correct or what else would cause it.

Code P1259 is a VTEC System Malfunction. I don't think there's a code for a bad oil pressure switch, just an oil dash light.

p1259 is a problem with the VTEC system. this system is for improved performance at higher rpm's. oil can get sludged up and clog the system, or the VTEC solenoid can just go bad. you can always have someone with a scan tool clear the codes to turn off the light, but until the problem is fixed, it will just keep coming back on
