Question about Honda Accord
Okay, so now you know not to pull the PCM fuse. It won't reset the codes, the parts stores read and reset codes with codereaders for free. ANYTIME you CEL comes on, take it there and write down the codes.
In most cars newer than about 2000, this triggers the security shutdown. What about a dead battery? Why doesn't that trigger the lockdown? Because the computer monitors battery strength 24/7 and it knows the difference between sudden loss of power and slow ***** of the battery.
So IF that's what happened—and you should ALWAYS put make, model, engine, and year in any question; there is no one-size-fits-all about this kind of stuff—if that's what happened, someone who can access the deep levels of the PCM will have to unlock it. That means dealer or certified master mechanic shop will full repair equipment including computers.

SOURCE: Re wiring
Thanks for your concern guy's. We did manage to fix the problem....It took us about four days of laborious work....We had to remove the harness covers and work our way backwards and forward, from the management computer, to and from the relevant 'sender unit' coolant temp, air temp, manifold pressure, lumda and oxogen sensor and from the controlled units, ie, ignition system, injection system, cooling fan set up and so on. We managed to identify the connections by following the identification labels printed onto the circuit boards.
We think that Toyota could make life a lot easier, if they used a standard wire colour coding and did not change that colour inside the loom....It is not un-common to see, as an example, a red with white tracer at one end and that may be joined to a blue with red tracer at the other end....If the loom cover is not removed and the cable inspected, you could not guess from what goes in, what will be coming out.
Hope this will be of help to someone somewhere.
