Code P1259 what would cause this?


P1259 is the code for the VTEC pressure switch.

1. Check your oil level first, if oil level is low the code will come on. Add oil and reset the light.
2.you might have a bad Vtec oil pressure switch, try replacing it.

How do I reset the codes on a Honda Accord DX?


Hello,
Sometimes removing the positive battery cable for a minute then reconnecting it will reset the codes. If this does not work the Auto Zone can hook it up to the OBD meter for free and read/reset the codes. If your check engine light continues to come on then I would recommend you have the codes read and the problem fixed by your local trusted auto technician.

Regards, Tony

I have a 1998 Honda Accord the service engine soon light came on. I failed inspection and was told I had a Diagnostic trouble code P1259.(1) What does P1259 trouble indicate. (2) How do you turn off the...


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

Run's great and no check engine light on anymore. So to help you out as best I can, here is the numbers that are on my work sheet. I dont know witch numbers represent the part number but this is how it looks on my paper.
