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.
