Question about 2001 Honda Civic
I'm getting the code 1259, its for "VTEC SYSTEMS MALFUNCTION". What needs to be done
Reset the ecu pull #6 fuse 15a for 10 msec. check oil level fill if needed. start engine hold at 3 grand for at least 2 sec road test if still comes back 1259 repeat 2 times. If it is gone it is intermit problem check for loose terminals at VTEC solenoid vavle oil pressure switch and the ECM/PCM. If you still have the code turn ignition off remove resonator disconnect the VTEC oil pressure switch 2p connector check for contnuity between VTEC oilpress switch terminals 1 and 2 if none replace the oil pressure switch. if yes measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector B9 and body ground. Voltage? repair open wire between B9 and the oil pressure switch. If no than the ECM/PCM will need to be checked for the latest software and reprogrammed to be further diaged. This will only be able to bedone at the dealer.
