Need some help with Codes

I just pulled 3 codes today. I was doing my CEL so figured I would do my SRS and ABS too while I was at it...

The CEL was 4 long blinks and 1 short, which I see as being my Heated O2 Sensor, which O2 sensor is this one? I see there are 2 codes for O2 sensors, just wanna know if this is the one before the Cat??


The ABS blinked short blinks, I got 3 blinks total but they were about 2 to 3 seconds apart, so I think it is just replaying the single blink for code 10 ABS Pump motor over run the pressure switch.
I also need to know if i am correct with my pull on this one and if it just needs to be replaced?


The SRS gave me 10 long blinks and one short... I have no idea what this means so if someone could let me know if they know that would be great.

Last thing I need to know very important, do the harnesses plug into anything or just lay under the console for testing codes? cause they were unplugged already when I pulled them out and I dont know if they are supposed to be connected to anything.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out, this is the first time I pulled codes so I hope it all works out good.....

Re: Need some help with Codes

Code 41 is "Primary oxygen sensor heater" so I would think that is the one in the down pipe (the first one).



Is your ABS light on? if not it may just be a stored code. I would try a reset anyway:

Reset ABS Fault Codes

The procedure to reset the ABS codes is as follows:

- Plug in a paper-clip to the blue service connector under the dash.

- Press the brake pedal and hold.

- Turn the ignition key to the second position (not starting the car).

- When the ABS light goes out take your foot off the brake.

- The light will come back on, press the brake pedal again and hold.






Again I would go for a SRS reset. Im not sure if this writeup applies for 4G's
Honda Prelude | SRS Light Reset : Guides / How to's / Tech Section

If not google for a reset procedure.

Thanks man, I really appreciate the help, I am going to try a ABS reset in about an hour, and Ill let you know how that went, and I will look into the SRS reset, but if there is something wrong with a part, would it be bad to reset it? or would that potentially fix the problem?

Re: Need some help with Codes

I just attempted to do the ABS reset. I followed your instructions up until the part where I take my foot off the brake and put it back on the brake. I turn my key to ON position and the ABS light comes on, I made sure that I kept my foot on the brake before turning the key to on. The ABS light comes on for about 1 second or so, and goes off. I took my foot off the brake and then it gave me the error message it gave me yesterday, the 3 short blinks about 3-5 seconds apart from one another. Is that when I put my foot back on the brake?

Re: Need some help with Codes

If the reset appears not to have worked then I would go with the code and look to have that part replaced.

Often all these systems need is to be reset. 4WS is a great example.

Ok do you know which one is my code then? by number, i know short blinks are by the 10s for ABS, but it is a single short blink every 3-5 seconds, so do you think that is just repeating the one 3 times? or 3 blinks for my code? 30 is nothing on the list of codes, but 10 is....

heres the list if you wanna check it out I am unsure of my exact code

Re: Need some help with Codes

Yeah it sounds like its just repeating the code.
