2002 honda civic limp mode


Asked by Sep 12, 2016 at 08:47 AM about the 2002 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My computer failed 6 months ago, I replaced it with a used computer and the
matching key set. The Computer went into "limp mode" I call ed the dealer and
thery told me that the 2002 Civic ECM is not re-programmable. I have left the
car disconnected from the battery several different times to reset the
computer, it will start fine but after a few revs it will go into "limp mode". Is my
only alternative to buy another Computer woth the Key Set  . . .or can this
computer be re-programmed?
