  2. 2003 CRV 2.4 liter - P1259 code. I've replaced the VTEC Solenoid

    Maintenance and Service
    I'm helping my dad with his 2003 Honda CRV. Last week the P1259 code came on while he was on his way to work, and the car would shutter around 3000 rpm.

    DIY Center Discussion
    Went the cheap route and bought starter solenoid only to fix my intermittent no-start problem. Didn't really look at what was involved to replace, or maybe was afraid of what I'd find.
