OBD Manual diagnostic on Honda Vigor without obd tools
The Honda Vigor was a premium sedan that was sold in Japan through the Honda Verno dealer network from 1981 to 1995 derived from the Honda Accord, and briefly sold in North America from 1992 to 1994 as the Acura Vigor. Early Vigors were more upmarket versions of the Accord and served as Honda’s flagship until the arrival of the Honda Legend. In 1989, the Vigor would differentiate itself further from the Accord with unique styling and an available longitudinal five-cylinder engine, and a twin to the Vigor was introduced with the Honda Inspire, available at Honda Clio dealerships.
It was replaced in North America with the Acura TL and in Japan with the Honda Saber/Inspire, which were the same vehicle sold through different networks.
The Vigor was developed during what was known in Japan as the Japanese asset price bubble or “bubble economy”.
PLEASE SELECT THE OBD SOCKET OF YOUR CAR BELOW AND FOLLOW THE JUMPER SETTINGS.
|Year range: 1989 to 2001
Locations: Under the passengers seat.
Year range: 1998 to 2009
Locations: Under the drivers side dash panel.
PLEASE NOTE:If after following the instructions below the Check Engine Light does not flash it either means there are no fault codes or there is a connection error. To test connection, remove the TPS and run the engine then recheck codes.
1. If possible run the engine to bring the oxygen sensor up to operating temperature then switch the engine off.
2. Connect the terminals using your own jumper wire, as shown in the diagram above.
3. Turn ignition ON, the Check Engine Light (CEL) should be flashing on your car dashboard.
4. Read codes as described in the Code Format Description below.
Code Format Diagram
• Each code is made up of two series of flashes.
• The long flashes indicate the ‘tens’ digits.
• The short flashes indicate the ‘ones’ digits.
• A long pause separates each code sequence.
• Code Format Diagram shows above is code No. 12.
• If nolongflashes are observed then the code is a straight count of short flashes. i.e. 4 flashes = code 4.

- After the faults have been rectified, trouble codes can be erased by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) or as follows:
- Switch ignition OFF.
- Remove radio fuse (7.5A) from underhood fusebox for 10 seconds minimum
- Reinstall fuse.
- Repeat checking procedure to ensure no data remains in ECM fault memory.
