Question about 2004 Honda Accord
I am having a problem with my 2004 Honda Accord Sport 2.2 Diesel- here is my issue-- in cold conditions the heater plug light flashes continuously and the engine looses power allowing only revs up to and under 2000- it goes into limp home mode. I brought it too my mechanic who did a reading on it in mild weather and could find no fault it appears that anything above 5 Degrees C- yesterday at -3C the heater plug light flashed and performance slowed again then when going up a hill the car began to chung slightly then the engine management light came on and the car died. After about 5-10 mins I was able to start the car and drive very slowly to the garage. Can you give me any insite as to what might be wrong please
Any number of things can throw you into limp mode and you definately won't have vtec. Most likely if you have a CEL fix that first then worry about VTEC. CEL can be a great indicator as to whats going on, and that light is lit for a reason. even when people say, "I have a CEL but thats a different issue" ,fix that FIRST, then worry about vtec. many codes that are set have alot to do with why vtec isn't working. If your car is not acting right take apart the dash and check that your CEL light is not burnt out. it should light up when you first turn the key on.

Limp mode initiates when the enginbe computer(s) note a problem that can cause serious damage to the engine or electricsl components. The car engages limp mode and will not go into higher gers as a protective measure
push in the computer connectors . check your computgers to see if you have a loose connection(s).
