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.

My 1998 honda accord check engine light Is on. And there are two p codes 1259 and 1456. how to fix?


Fuel filler cap is loose. 1456

Tighten *at least SIX* clicks. Wait three engine on-off cycles. Light
should go off.

If it does not go off, the cap may not fit tightly enough for a proper
seal. Replace cap. Occasionally, the threads in the filler necks can be
damaged, preventing the cap from being properly tightened.

Fault engine is showing in the meter the number of engine is 1259


If the car is not having any run issue I would definitely check the oil level. The code translates p1259 as VTEC System Malfunction. I would also ask if you have changed the oil recently. Typically running 10/40 rather than 5/30 in these motors can cause this code to be generated.

Code 1259 is vtec system malfunction, in other words, it's a variable valve timing and lift electronic control. It's honda's system used to control the rate of engine valves to open and close. Need to take it to a shop or dealer to have that checked out.
