Hello, I own a 1999 Honda CRV-EX with 1260,000 km. Always been great. Last May 2011, Honda dealer changed timing belt and water pump - this May 2012, CEL came on, code 1362-TDC Sensor, no signal. Honda dealer checked distributor cap and rotor for corrosion and said was ok, checked resistance at TDC sensor and supposed to be max 800 ohms, mine is 12,000 ohms. Mechanic said thinks I need a new distributor, but not sure since CEL didn't come back on. From this response, I didn't feel confident enough to spend 750.00 plus on new OEM distributor for a 1999 vehicle. One month later, CEL comes back on, but car drives fine, starts fine, no hesitation, no misfiring, I'm stumped. Suggestions? Should I just get a new distributor? Or maybe just the distributor sub-assembly with the sensors, and keep my other parts? Could something have been done wrong with the timing belt change? Thanks
have the same problem?
