This is quoted from some Honda service information:

Got a vehicle in your shop with DTC P1676 (FPTDR signal line failure) or TCS DTC 31 (engine retard
command [PFINH] signal)? A bad ignition switch (the electrical half) could be the culprit.
NOTE: On the HDS, you’ll see TCS DTC 31 listed as TCS DTC 31-2.
Inspect the ignition switch solder joints for any signs of overheating. If you notice the solder joints are
melted, replace the ignition switch.

If you also have a stalling issue replacing the electrical portion of the ignition switch should also take care of that.
