Don,

Are there any other fault codes set in the ECM ?

Misfire codes catalyst codes and O2 sensor codes
Mechanic for Honda: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

In most cases if there are no other fault codes in the ECM, Honda recommends updating the ECM with the latest software for the code 77-1, that being said they also say before you consider doing that you have to address the other codes first.

See the reccomendation from Honda in the link below.

Do you need help with these other codes?

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!!!!
