    1.I have a 91 b16a in a 98 civic ex and my vtec does not kick in at all. B4 i assume my vtec solenoid does not work i wanted to ask if it is fine to have a 99-00 usdm civic si distributor-would that cause the vtec not to work?
    2.I have a obd2-obd1 wiring harness with a chipped p28. Instead of this, can I just use a ecu from a 99 si? or will my car go into limp mode?
    3.Is the solenoid the same for a d16y8 as a b16a?

    this is why obd2 cars suck.

    what wiring harness are you using? your stock one? i read that you have an obd2-obd1 wiring harness, i'm assuming that you mean a jumper, and hoping that you didn't hack your stock harness.

    shave a little bit of the vtec wire a couplea inches from the solenoid. then take another wire, attach it to the vtec wire where you shaved it, and touch the other end to the battery. you should hear the solenoid click. if it doesn't click when connected to the battery, your solenoid is bad. if it does click, something else is jacked up.

    if all else fails, just run a switch to your solenoid.

    haha...actually, no...don't run a switch to your solenoid.
