I have a 1998 Honda Accord EX. I had the check engine light come on as well and I had the code read by PepBoys. The code was:P1259 or VTEC SYSTEM Malfunction.
I Don't know jack about were to start to fix this problem, so I bit the bullet and took the car to my Honda Dealer. The problem was checked out and was told this.
( REPLACE VTEC VALVE ASSEMBLY)
I had them do the work because I dont know how to do this. So after $204.00 in Labor and $162.29 in parts, for a grand total $366.29, The car was fixed!!!!!!! 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.

1 15810-PAA-A02 8108797-90870 VALVE ASSY, SPOOL $150.75

1 15825-P0A-015 8161598-15999 FILTER, SPOOL VALVE $11.54

There you go! I hope this gives everyone a place to start. maybe get your self a Haynes Repair Manual (#42014 is for the 1998-2002 Honda Accord, all models) and try to do the work your self. Good luck to all of you form Donald M. in SoCal.

I have an 02 accord that has the check engine light on. Its got 145000 miles on it. I got it scanned. The codes were p1259 vtec system circuit fault bank 1, p0420 catalyst system efficiency below...


Fix the P1259 code first. Are you using the recommended oil viscosity? If not, change that immediately. Also, check the screen in the Vtec solenoid for sludge buildup. If the variable valve timing isn't working properly, it can cause the P0420. If not fixed soon, that can destroy your cataltytic converter. The P1457 code is less important.

It is the wire close to the VTEC valve solenoid plug be cut off. Sounds wired, but it happened to my 2001 accord EX V6 sedan. After I solder it back, the TCS light turned off. But I had to disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and put it back to reset the Check Engine light.

How to replace cam shaft sensor


Assuming you have the 2.3 L 4 cylinder engine, the CYP sensor [Honda does not call it a camshaft sensor] is located in the distributor. It also has 2 crankshaft sensors, located down at the front of the crankshaft. You need to remove the timing belt covers to access those.
FYI, P1259 is a VTEC system [variable valve timing] malfunction code. First step would be to change the engine oil and filter. Dirty oil can cause the VTEC solenoid to stick.

VTEC System Malfunction code P1259 in honda acura car what does thi means


P1259 Immobilizer to PCM Signal Error,, ok, first does the car hic up at around 4000 rpm'? what you have here is possibly 2 things with a honda, and that code just happens to pop up for both,, One, change the oil, and 2, you may need to change the Vtec pressure sensor/screen (solenoid),, its located between the Vtec solenoid and the head,, My guess is that your oil is pretty bad, or you just had an oil change, either way ,, clean that sensor,, it may or may not work, if not, you'll have to replace it

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
