Take the lower panel out on the passanger side kickpanel
There is where the ecu sets
Tucked up above the ecu is a green rubber plug deal. It hosts a holding spot for two plugs, one has 3 wires and one has 2, they both are grey plastic plugs. the two wire ones the one you want, it will have a brown wire with a black stripe for one of the wires i believe?
Anyhow, use a paperclip or a peice of wire to "Jump" or connect both of those terminals on that plug together, so you are essentially shorting it out. This will cause the check engine light on your dash to flash.
If its vtec related it will flash 2 slow times and 1, 2 or 3 fast flashes. That means 21,22, or 23. That will tell you what code it is.
If you get me what number code it is, i can tell you how to fix it.
Using dirty, the wrong weight, or too much oil can fuck the vtec system up in some cases. This will trigger the 23 and 22
the knock sensor, which happens to set right above the oil filter, in a perfect spot for derelict retards to hit at jiffy lube taking the oil filter off. This can easily break and snap off the block, then the knock sensor can not monitor detonation knock and it triggers a code 21.
Let me know, my aim screenname is Roadmisfit138. Id be happy to help you out if youd like.
Take care and good luck bro.
