VTEC Question

Ive been told that will not engage if the CEL is on, is this true? If so, is it ANY engine code or just a VTEC related code?

You have to throw more than 1 code.

I think its more what code your throwing than how many, if its a code for the VSS vtec won't engage for example since the ENC doesn't know how fast your going.

Well i keep throwing an IAT code. Sometimes it starts upwithout it then it comes on after bout 15 minutes of driving. I know that the IAT helps determine the fuel mixture so maybe it wont let it engage. I haven't tried it yet cuz i wanna put at least 500 miles on it first to "break it in"

clere will become famous soon enoughclere will become famous soon enough
also remember that even if only 1 code pops up, you can easily have 2-3 or more codes pop up afterwards. They like to hide behind others

Break it in as in drive it easy for awhile. I couldn resist tho and i tried out the VTEC last night. F**ckin awesome! Yeah i know there could be more than one code so i always check it when it comes on cuz every once in awhile i get a code fot the ECT sensor as well. Turns out the IAT has a bad power wire thats only supplying part of the time but thats cool at least its not the ECU. I haven't been able to get the ECT to malfunstion at work so i cant diag it just yet.
