Question about 1991 Honda Civic
It flashes code 17
Code 17 speed sensor. Does speedometer work? there is an assembly at the top right of the transmission from which a cable runs to the speedometer. A non working speedometer isn't a massive failure and you can Google how to fix it.

SOURCE: check engine light comes "on"
OK, If I understand your question correctly, Your Check Engine light is coming on and you are getting a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0240 and we are talking about a 2000 Honda Civic DX with a 1.6L engine? If this is not correct, please let me know.
DTC P0240 is not a valid code for the vehicle listed above. Are you sure we are not talking about DTC P0420? If this is the case, then your catalytic converter is not working and most likely will need to be replaced. If you previously had fuel system problems, this is what most likely destroyed your catalytic converter - especially if the vehicle was driven fo some time with the fuel system problem. It is VERY common for this code to come up after other engine performance problems have been repaired. The reason for this is because the computer will not run the catalyst monitor if there are other problems in the ignition or fuel systems. So as long as these other problems exist, the computer has no idea what the condition of the catalyst is. Once the other problems are fixed, then the catalyst moitor will run. If the computer finds that the catalyst has been damaged and is not performing as designed, it will set DTC P0420.

You will need to remove the back seats and you will see the fuel pump in between the back seats and trunk. Run the car, remove the fuel pump fuse to relieve the pressure and then the car will die. Remove the pipes to the fuel pump, replace it and refit the pipes. Pump the gas pedal a few times and start it up (remember the fuse!)
If it is inside the tank (the fuel pump), then you will see the tank is held on by straps. Take them off, have ajack under it and remove the filler neck and screws holding it to the car. Remove the tank, undo the central bit where wires and pipes come out and slide the fuel pump out, replace what you have just done and refit.
Hope this helps, please vote :)

Have tranny serviced . Check tranny fluid level fill with HONDA ONLY fluid. If not fixed have fluid drained and filter replaced on tranny

Testimonial: "thanks u very much. the problem has been resolved. very good advice."
Hey I had the same code and I have a 2000 honda civic lx. My cousin
works at honda and drives a '96 honda civic and he has had that code
before on his car as well.
First thing he came up with was that the catalytic converter was cracked. We checked mines, and lo and behold, that's what it was.
Look under your hood, and there should be a catalytic converter with a sensor sticking out of it. It is connected to the exhaust manifold and the sensor sticks out of the heat shield. Around the sensor, look for a crack. If there's a crack, that's your problem.
