The inspect engine light through code P0402 came on around 112900 miles. This problem is due to the fact that of the engine computers threshold calculate by the 2 oxygen sensors. Accords indigenous 1998-2001 have actually a much closer tolerance than other year models so together the catalytic efficiency becomes less, this year design accords trip the check engine light. Ns tried a CATCOE $310.00 brand catalytic converter and got about 20K miles prior to the same difficulty came back. I have sense readjusted it again using a converter native Autozone $190.00 and after 30k mile no trouble noted. Constantly use Honda O2 sensors or Denso brand. Never ever Bosh
