Try pressing the reset switch. You may have shorted out a speaker temporarily. If that doesn't work, check all of your speakers and speaker wires for shorts or grounds.

You have a major problem. When you hit the pot hole a sensor for the airbag system got damaged. Need to have fixed ASAP WILL NOT BE PROTECTED IN A CRASH! Could have damage the seat belt mechanism

95 accord error code check engine code 21


This code is for a V-Tec valve control failure, which is why it doesn't come on until you hit 4200rpm. That's when the system activates. Check your connections at the V-tec solenoid/valve on the back of the head. You'll likely see it leaking quite a bit of oil leaking down the back of the engine from it. Don't bother messing with it, replace it. And don't use any kind of additives in your oil. (Slick 50, etc) These products notoriously clog the V-Tec valves. Good luck!

I ran a scan and it came back saying p1336 craankshaft position system variation not learned. Does anyone know exactly what this means. I know that it happened after I hit a pit whole. Do you think that it...


Yep sounds like the crankshaft position sensor. If it happened right after you hit a pot hole it sounds like the sensor is loose. There should be a bolt that holds it in place. I have seen where the whole bolt was missing and the crank sensor was sliding in and out of the hole it goes into. Since the sensor works on a magnetic field if it is too far away from the crank you will get a code like that or if it is too close. Also, the whole sensor could be bad and it just could be a coincidence that it happened when you hit a pot hole. I would call your local GM dealer and ask them where the sensor is or talk to your autoparts store someone there might have experience with it.

Flashing PROTECT


This is often caused by a problem with the speakers or speaker wiring. A speaker wire that's pinched behind the head unit will cause this problem if it's shorted to dash metal or the deck chassis. The first thing to do is remove the head unit and inspect all the speaker wiring for bare spots or pinched spots. If everything looks okay, disconnect all four speakers from the deck and switch it on. If it still shows "protect" then you have a defective head unit. If not, then turn it off, re-connect one of the speakers, and turn it on again. Continue until you find the speaker output that puts the deck into protect mode.

My stereo is flashing the work "PROTECT" across the front


In a Kenwood deck, "PROTECT" usually means that one of the speaker output wires is shorted. The first thing to do is pull the deck and inspect the wiring at the back, making sure there aren't any pinched or exposed wires. If a speaker wire is pinched against the deck chassis, or bare wire is touching dash metal, it can cause your problem. If you don't see anything obvious, disconnect all speaker wires from the deck, then turn it on. If it still flashes "protect", then you have a defect in the unit. If not, then re-connect the speakers one at a time until you find the one that causes it to go into Protect mode. Usually if you don't find a pinched or shorted wire behind the radio, the problem can be found at the speaker itself. This is especially common if you've installed after-market speakers; if a speaker terminal connection has come loose and is now touching the speaker basket or mounting surface, it will shut down the deck.
