    My vtec is not working, but i also have an engine light that does not go off.

    I have a B16A OBD1. pr3

    What conditions does the vtec kick in, i know at around 5000, but what are the other conditions, like temp, oil, etc.

    thank you.

    you have a CEL. Check the CEL and tell us what code it is. Read the articles about the diffrent codes and how to pull them.

    5700-5600rpm is what yours should be kicking in at
