One you have the diagnostics done you will havbe your answer as there any number of things that can and will activate the check engine light from low oil to loose gas cap to a bad ABS pump/comtrol module or even wheel speed sensors.

Pull up the error codes and freeze frame data to repair the problem.
Tentatively it could be due to the malfunction of VTEC or Vehicle speed sensor.

The m.i.l. will come on for lots of reasons but in my exp. if the car is running fine and you have oil pressure and its not over-heating that you wont damage the car by driving home.

My malfunction indicator lamp light is on and want go off, how do i repair?


Take your car to an Auto Zone, they will put it on the computer for free. As long as the light is on, they can pull up repair codes. 96 is the cut off year for when you can use a diagnostic computer. Good luck

Check engine light came on. Code P1456.


Did you change the gas cap with a Honda gas cap? Tighten it at least three clicks?
Also, Honda recommends that you never top off the tank when getting gas (only go to the click-off of the pump; otherwise you can get back flow into the system that will cause the code).
Tightening or replacing the cap will not immediately cause the light to go off; it can take up to three days of driving for the light to reset.
To check if your readiness codes (emission system) are set, turn the ignition to ON (II), without starting the engine. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp will come on for 20 seconds. If it then goes off, the readiness codes are set. If it blinks 5 times, the readiness codes are not set.
You can, of course, try resetting your engine light to see if it will come back on (which it probably will). I believe the procedure is:
Turn off the engine.
Press and hold the Select/Reset knob (odometer) in the instrument panel, then turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Hold the knob for approximately ten seconds until the indicator resets.

Hope this helps you.

Malfunction indicator light is stuck on... what else can i check besides the fuel cap


If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything. loose gas cap (which you ruled out) to a problem with the transmission

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain off. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on

Damn near anything, or nothing.
You must pull the computer codes to know what.
No other way.

2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low


yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

An intermittant check engine light ( MIL, malfunction indicator lamp) usually means the system has noticed some trouble that has either corrected itself or has been compensated for. You can have a shop check the DTCs ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes), or for pending codes ( problems noticed but not enough to store a fault code)
