that code is set due to a failure of the Vtech rocker arm system causing this issue

the issue can be wiring or the Vtech assembly itself which will cause this issue

i would have a shop test that system for you

usually they can tell you which is bad in under 1 hours labor

but they need to use there scan tool and a multi meter to test the circuit first to the Vtech system

Hello, new expert here.

Code 86 has to do with communication between the VSA module and other modules. It can either be a faulty connection or bad module. I'll post troubleshooting and location info below.

The P code does have to do with vtec problems as you know. I'll post detailed info below on troubleshooting and how it operates.

If I can help further just reply back.

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!!!!
