A 41 error is your throttle positioning sensor, its a electrical sensor hooked to your injectors telling them how much gas/air to be releasing as u accelerate/deccelerate. Best and only way to fix it is to buy a new sensor. Then reset the cars computer at a diagnostics shop for little or no cost.

Code P1491 is EGR lift insufficient. It is usually accompanied by P0401. If you have a v6 Accord, there was a recall for the EGR port plugging. Check with your Honda dealer to see if your car is covered under that recall. If you have a 4 cyl, plan on replaceing the EGR. In addition, you need to clean the ports in the engine on the intake and exhaust sides of the EGR ports. To do this, spray some carb/choke//intake cleaner into the ports to saturate the black exhaust build-up. Later, jam a coat hanger or spare dipstick (or some long flexible metal rod) into the parts to break up the black deposits. When your rod passes through easily, spray more cleaner to pass it through. Reassemble and start the engine. It will run rough at first, so you need to give it gas pedal input to burn off the carb cleaner. You should be good to go.

No-one is ever particularly happy to here this, but this is the way it is; we do have to keep in mind that the original idea of codes on radios was to prevent people who steal them from being able to use them.
So, if an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code number into the unit or it will not work. This code and the audio unit’s serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. If this card is lost, you must obtain the audio unit serial number in order to get the radio code (some people say that they have found the code on a sticker inside the glove compartment, but I wouldn’t count on that). Some newer vehicles allow you to retrieve the audio unit serial number electronically from the radio. Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific procedure (the following usually will work: Turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release. The serial number will come up in two sets of numbers.)
Some older vehicles (model year 2003 and older) require a visit to the dealer in order to retrieve the audio unit serial number (or you can remove the unit and get the serial number from the back of the radio). Once you have the audio unit serial number, you can call Auto Customer Service at (800) 999-1009 or have the dealer look up the radio code.
Here is the URL for the Honda Owner page. If you register (no charge) you are able to get radio codes using the VIN number of your car, the serial number of your radio, and the Phone Number and Zip Code that you give them when you register.
Hope this helps you with the process.

If you did not get the radio code written down in the owner's manual when it was installed, as you should have, then you will have to take it to a place that sells that type of radio, and have it reset. It takes a tool only they have, and they don't charge for resetting the code. But then write it down, because it will happen again.
