    Check Hondata's Website for the ecu error codes.

    You are throwing code 17 which is VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor).

    not so sure about that, but I think it has something to do with vtec. cause if i have my car in neutral, and I am not rolling, the engine will not engage in vtec. So, since your speed sensor aint working, the computer may not engage vtec. I am not sure tho, but from my experiences, vtec don't kick in unless im rolling. I know cause I hooked up a vtec light to run everytime vtec kicked in. Hope that helps.

    easy sensor to change! go to honda dealership and get a speed sensor and then it is the sensor in the top of tranny, under air intake tube. it is 3 bolts. 10 min tops to change. V-tec shouldn't engage until sensor is good.
