Smile Another P1259 code and resolution - 2002 Honda Accord EX 4cyl


MIL came on a few days ago, code was P1259, turned out the wire to the VTEC solenoid had worn out and needed replacement.

* Intermittent loss of all power at 4000 RPM and above (felt like the governor was kicking in) when the cam lobes are switched from low to high.
* Noticeable but minor hesitations, especially at lower speeds (below 45 MPH).

Parts and labor at a local garage: $77.

Was nice to be able to find so many responses about this code & Honda Accords on these forums and Honda Tech forums, thought I would share my experience as well.

yet another car newbie - stock 2002 EX 4-cyl F23A4 (2.3L, SOHC, ULEV, VTEC) coupe, 5-speed MT
