What else is it doing or not doing? This will help me tremendously as this could be an issue with a plugged fuel filter, misfire or mass air flow sensor issue.

That is an accord if I am not mistaken. All you have to do is replace the VSS(vehicle speed sensor). If you look down it is mounted on the transmission close to the bell housing underneath the air intake duct just below the thermostat housing. That is an accord sickness. I have fixed so many accord with same problem. On civic it is about in the same area where it is located. It is repairable, but it is not worth your time. I even invented a tester for a honda vehicle sensor so I could bring it to a junkyard and test it so I wont have to keep coming back and fort.

Have a look at the brake pedal and find the switch for the brake. It sounds like something simple like the brake switch is jammed on. Once you identify the switch see if you can't find where the plug is. Remove the plug and test the switch, press the brake peddle up and down whilst you are doing this to assertain if the switch is activating on and off properly or staying switched on it.

Assuming this is a manual shift transmission then 5th has probaly melted due to no lube.5 th gear is smaller on the countershaft and does not dip into the sump as far.So it is the first to loose oil when trans is low.If this is a 5 speed auto like on the 04 up accords and odessy vans then clutches are most likely damaged.Either way you are gonna need transmission repair.Good luck!

Code 9 is a loss of signal from No.1 cylinder position sensor
which is referred to as the CYP sensor. The wire colors for this sensor are Orange and White, they go to ECM (computer) terminals B11 and B12. Below is a page showing the diagnostics for all the sensors, first make sure you have a good circuit to the CYP all the way to the ECM, if you do then the ECM is likely defective, this part runs around $300.00 in the aftermarket, so do your testing.
The repair manual page below may be hard to see, do this, copy the page to your picture file on your PC, then use the picture viewer to enlarge it. You can also use any photo program you have to enlarge it.
