Honda civic: gutless acceleration, key light, check engine light and seat belt light displayed.
I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX Vtec 1.7 engine. 4 Door sedan, automatic transmission.
Engine was replaced with Foreign Auto Engines from Japan.
Engine was installed with original Japanese wire harness. Japanese engine harness needs to be replaced with American harness becuase they don't work on American civic engines.
Our mechanic finally swapped out Japanese engine wiring harness w/ harness from engine removed. And, swapped the VTec solenoid and the missing pressure sensor l(ocated beneath it) not found on Japanese engine. Engine ran find for about 2 months. Then started symptoms mentioned above.
Honda dealership's $12,000 computer can't read the ecm. They tried new ecm, but it didn't improve the symptoms. Old ecm re-installed.
Our mechanic can read the ecm either.
What can we do?
have the same problem?
