    stuck in 2-Lo

    I would definitely try to swap a new brake light switch, as it should cost you about $30 Something like this happened to me in my 98 Ex. Replacing switch was fairly easy, hardest part was to stuck a head next to the pedal trying to see what I'm doing LOL

    98 Ex lost power - need help please

    Thank you all for suggestions. So far I checked PCM Power Relay (tested fine) and I think I unplugged EGR valve. I haven't checked other sensors/solenoids because I don't know where to find them yet. However as far as I know, O2 sensors work continuously (after they warm up past 600-degrees F)...

    98 Ex lost power - need help please

    Yes, car idles ok and reacts to accelerator fine when gears are in "P" position. As for solenoids I think they are ok as no mechanical fault codes are present.
