Hi, I purchased a 2001 Honda 2dr/HX cvt about a year ago, vin= 1HGEM22761L059670, it has been throwing the code p1885 = CVT drive pulley speed sensor circuit (input shaft) - symptoms: when the engine is cold and rpms are around 1200, engages into drive fine, after driving around and engine is warmed up and rpm's are lower, if car placed in park then drive, drive does not engage (just revs up like it is in neutral), I can get it to engage at times, by raising the rpms slowly to 1200 to 1500, if it does not engage by 2000 rpm, that is when it throws the P1885 code and the "D"(drive) blinks. I turn off engine, let it cool, the "D" does not blink and engages fine. This does not sound like a speed sensor issue. I am thinking a sensor or solinoid is not reading the rpm's correctly. All signs point to electrical. No problems going into reverse. I recently replaced the cvt fluid with Honda cvt fluid. Any ideas?
