    If you look in the Articles section of Hondaswap on the 4th page there is a listing error codes.

    The codes:

    41: is your oxygen sensor
    23: is your knock sensor

    I'm driving with a 41 now.I have a high idle,I'm guessing from the ECU compensating and being safe and running richer than normal.Without the knock sensor signal,it (ECU) shouldn't allow the motor to rev higher than around 3K.

    I have a seven wire o2,and I haven't wired it,that is why I am driving around with a CEL 41.And the knock sensor thing,I guess it matters what ECU you have whether or not it will rev past and not engage vtec or if it goes into limp mode.

    Same here,but I am rewiring it tomorrow.If it works out I'll give you the 411 (<---see I'm hip).How is it performing now?Have you driven it at all?

    BTW:Even though my harness has seven,I found an interesting board that was saying that two of them just goto a void in the plug,so it would be a five wire.

    I've put about ninty miles on mine so far with the CEL 41,It idles about 300rmps too high an bogs slightly for the first 150 or so rpms in first,other than that I haven't had any problems.If I get it right tomorrow,I'll get back to ya.

    BDI - Check your PM's.


    Code 41 is NOT just 02, it's the heater portion of it. You need to wire the 02 sensor properly.

    Knock sensor has nothing to do with redline or VTEC. It retards the timing when the ECU "hears" a "ping" AKA detonation.
