Check Engine Code P1600 and P1433 for Hybrid

I have a Honda Civic Hybrid 2004 and my check engine light came on and stayed on for a day. I had the codes pulled and reset and it came back as a 1600 and a 1433. The check engine light came back on yesterday all day and then today when I got in my car for lunch it was not on anymore. I called the Honda Dealer to find out if it was a problem and he said he didn't know and I would need to bring it in. I want to have an idea of how much its going to cost before I take it in. Its going to cost be $125 just to run the diagnostic on there. There have been no adverse affects on my car's driving. Any clues or thoughts were I can get a better understanding of the codes? At Autozone it said for P1600 it is "Loss of Kam Power; Open Circuit". The P1433 code said A/C refrigerant temp. circuit low.

Honda reccomends timing belt change at 100k. Most Honda dealers like you to change the belt at 90,000 miles (90k). some auto repair places will want to change the belt at 60k but that is not necessary (Note: if in a severe cold or hot climate like florida or canada you would change the belt before 90k or if the belt is over 7 years old.. Good luck:

I successfully did this on my 2001 Honda Civic.

You have to remove the entire center console to get to the light. I recommend actually having the replacement bulb prior to starting. I used a Sylvania 74 that I picked up at the local auto parts store. They are tiny bulbs. About $3.

Here is a diagram I found that was very helpful in removing the center console:

07f6bbd.png

In A above, you have to work out the middle portion of the console by pulling up on it. There are tabs that hold it in place on either side of it but you can't get to them. By using my fingers and grabbing the inside of the main dish, I applied upward pressure and it came out. It did not break in the process, but I can't guarantee the result will be the same for you.

In picture B you will see that there are two screws hidden underneath the part you just removed. You need to remove those two screws plus the two tabs shown in front and the two screws located in the rear close to the floor.

You will need to put the shift into neutral or farther back to then lift out the entire console.

Once the console is removed you will see a wire going into the right side just underneath the gear shift. If you look into where it's going, you will see the back side of a small round socket. Rotate the socket about 90 degrees and it should come out. Voila! The bulb.

Simply pull the bulb out and push in a new one. Turn on the headlights to test. The bulb should be nicely lit.

Now push the socket back into where it came from and rotate back 90 degrees to lock it in place. If you reverse the rest of the instructions, putting the console back together will just take a minute or two.

Finally, write an email to Honda and tell them what you think about how easy it is to replace this lamp.

I believe it has to do with the vtec functioning. At certain time in accleration during rpm range the valve timing changes and it is probably a sensor that detects rpms. you need to check with someone else though because I am not an expert on hondas, just understand the principle of how it works.

2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low

As I was driving home from work, the engine malfunction indicator lamp came on and the rpm became too high at low speeds. I pulled over and turned off the engine. After starting again the car seemed to run fine but the malfunction warning light stayed on. I took it to the honda dealer for diagnostics.

They told me that it is a code P0122 i.e. the throttle position sensor has low voltage. They have recommeded replacing the whole throttle body for full total of $850. I have been driving for two days now...and the warning light comes on and off....When the light comes on...the engine starts acting up again....and idles at high rpm at very low speeds...

Does the throttle body needs to replaced?

Thanks.

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

The fan does not blow.

The fan does not blow. Both fuses are good [40 amp under hood & 20 amp under dash]. Heat does come through when driving but the motor does not blow. I have read to check the cable to the heater coil that is suppose to be on the firewall passenger side but can not locate any. i tried the A/C and it does not blow either....nor do I hear the compressor enganging ?!

Normally, blower resistor for aircond car can be fuse blow. (Thermal fuse type). In my case, civic 1.7 ex 2002, i take out a part (DENSO 077800-0682) and open the black cover. inside there, have electronics board with some components. The Thermal fuse is paraller with Power FET. If you can't get the thermal fuse to change (checking using ohm meter to confirm it has cut off), just take a small wire and soldering between to leg of the thermal fuse. Then, try reassemble your blower resistor denso 077800 and try on your aircond.
