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.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
