Futher diagnosis may be in order. If there truly is "no Codes" you need to find out why the computer is turning the light on. I would have the dealer or a shop that works on a lot of Honda's look at it.

You could try disconnecting the battery. Some auto part stores rent or let you borrow code readers. Walmart sells cheap code readers too.

You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

I have a 2000 honda civic hx,the check engine is on,i replaced the timing belt,distributor,spark plugs and wires too and the check engine light is still on.the car has lost power,consumes more fuel and it...


What is the trouble code the engine light is telling you to check?

Buy a low cost OBD2 code reader and check the code(s) yourself.

The OBD2 plug is always with-in 3 feet of the steering column.

Find it and plug your tester in with the key on to retrieve the codes.

Once you have the code(s)....repair that/those item(s) first.

My 2000 honda civic engine light on code p1456


Hey I had the same code and I have a 2000 honda civic lx. My cousin works at honda and drives a '96 honda civic and he has had that code before on his car as well.

First thing he came up with was that the catalytic converter was cracked. We checked mines, and lo and behold, that's what it was.

Look under your hood, and there should be a catalytic converter with a sensor sticking out of it. It is connected to the exhaust manifold and the sensor sticks out of the heat shield. Around the sensor, look for a crack. If there's a crack, that's your problem.

1999 Honda Civic EX fault codes 1366 and 1399


This code is not documented so the code reader is giving a false reading.
If the car runs OK and check engine light is not on, I would forget about it.
