If the vehicle senses a fault in any of the engine control systems it will disable the cruise control. Most likely there is no problem at all with the cruise control system or the traction control, rather they are just being turned off by the computer because of the fault that is triggering the check engine light.
Do you know which code was pulled from the computer?
I can give you diagrams on how to replace the cam sensor if in fact that was the cause of the check engine light.
I think you could. Let me send a diagram that shows how to replace it. You can find inexpensive cam sensors on Amazon.
You have two cam sensors on this vehicle. You will need to know which sensor is at fault based on the code.
Sounds good. Let me know if you need additional information.
Cam sensor A is the first diagram I sent, the intake cam sensor.
With that trouble code, the more likely cause is the VCT solenoid being restricted with oil sludge and needing replacement. How often is the oil changed, and with what viscosity of oil?
It wouldn't hurt to change it, but that code could even indicate a timing chain issue. Let me show you the Honda fault tree on P0341.
You would have to pull the front timing cover off and check the timing marks to make sure they are aligned.
I would suggest replacing the VCT solenoid first. You should be able to do it yourself. We see them go bad all of the time.
If that doesn't fix it, then I would start looking at the timing chain.
The honda part number is :15830RBB003
Here is the honda diagram.
That is the VCT solenoid.
Please don't forget to rate. They don't pay us if we don't get a positive rating.
Yeah, the 2010 and up hondas started getting more and more complicated and DIY mechanic-ing is becoming tougher.
Let me know if you need any help in the future
