P1298 Honda Civic
I have a 2001 Civic, the ENE light is on and the code p1298 burns out during the evaluation. 3
My Powerlight turned on 3 days ago and I immediately went to the auto zone to run the diagnostic trouble code. The only code that appears after reading the high input of the Electrical Charge Detector Circuit (ELD) is P1298.
what is the meaning of this? What needs to be fixed? Is it bad to drive with him and I still have a lot of time? How much does it cost to repair? I really need your help, thank you all!
Your problem is wide. The problem is with the electronic load detector in the box and in the relay. Previously, the entire electronics box and relay box had to be replaced. Due to the high cost of repairs and numerous defects, we issue separate spare parts. NES dealers have a service bulletin for individual portion replacement. So if you buy parts from it (these are just dealer parts), ask for a hard copy of the W Service Bulletin to install them. Anyone who can read English can type it following the instructions. The cost of making it yourself is the cost of the parts. The total amount payable to the third party must be less than $ 100.
The ELD reduces the power of the alternator when you do not need it, for example when driving at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour on the highway. This is done to relieve some of the electrical load and increase energy savings. Apart from the lights on the dashboard, you will not see any difficulty in operation.
To be sure, I advise you to stop and buy auto zone parts to see if they can check the performance of your replacement. They usually do it for free. If not, stop by the SP and ask for a look. Most mechanics will do this for free. I'm sure the alternator works fine when the battery light is off, but I recommend checking it out if you need more security. As long as the alternator output is within acceptable limits, you can drive with the lights on whenever you want without having to adjust the ELD.
For example, who helps?
