new TSB for 15-16 I4 CVT Accords (and CR-Vs)
"Today, August 3, 2016, American Honda Motor, Co., Inc. is announcing a product update for model year 2015-16 Honda Accord and CR-V vehicles to address incorrect CVT operation and DTC P1890.
An incorrect learning value in the PCM may cause a pressure problem in the CVT under certain driving conditions causing a surge in RPM because the CVT belt slips at highway speeds, and will eventually set DTC P1890 (CVT speed control system).
Perform an inspection of the vehicle’s PGM-FI and check for DTC P1890. If the code is not set, please update the PGM-FI software. If the DTC P1890 is set, replace the transmission and update the PGM-FI software."
It might be early still, but my VIN did not reflect this update.
