The OBD-1 two digits trouble codes listed 'code-17' as:
This means that the fuel and ignition systems performance are in need of attention.
1.Distributor Cap: remove the 3-bolts holding the distriboutr to its body.
2. Inspect the distributor cap for cracks, and the roror-button is not worn or broken.
3. Inspect the distributor-cap terminals are not corroded or charred. Replace if charred. Clean them out if corroded.
4. Check the distributor-rotor for cracks or corrosion on its tip, and lesser spring tension.
Replace as necessary.
5. Reverse steps 1-4 to re-install distributor cap. Be sure to remove and replace the plug wires from the old distributor-cap to the new distributor-cap one-by-one. If not, the engine would not run.

Testimonial: "great help"
The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!

DESCRIPTION & OPERATION Immobilizer system consist of an ignition key (transponder equipped), coil (part of ignition lock cylinder), immobilizer unit, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), SECURITY light, and related wiring and fuses.
This system requires a key that has been programed into PCM and immobilizer unit to operate vehicle. When a key is used that has not been programed into PCM and immobilizer unit, the first 3 times the PCM will carry out fuel cut-off and ignition cut-off operations and engine will stop in a few seconds. The 4th time or after, engine cannot be started.
SECURITY light will illuminate for 1-2 seconds under normal operation. SECURITY light will flash when key ID does not match stored ID and SECURITY light will stay on when code word of immobilizer unit does not match stored code word.
Anti-theft Code 1602 refers to a miscommunication or no communication between the immobilizer system components, if vehicle starts, it means it is an intermittent problem. Most problems in electronic control system result from faulty wiring or poor electrical connections. To avoid unnecessary component testing, perform a visual inspection first.
