Question Need help with 1998 Accord EX with DTC P1382

Honda Accord 1998,EX,4cyl, 2.3L,VTec,AT,F23A1

Hi friends,

I need your help. The DTC P1382 is driving me crazy!
After replacing my dizzy with a new one because the old one was leaking oil and the car was runing erratically, the CEL came on with P1382. When installing back the old one, P1382 comes back.

What I have done so far:

-Checked the timing and it is OK
-Measured the resistance between CYPP and CYPM on the male side plug of the dizzy and it measures 847 Ohms
-Checked for continuity between body ground and dizzy there is no continuity
-Measured resistance between PCM connector terminals the black and yellow wires. 847 Ohms
-Checked for continuity between body ground and PCM connector terminal (CYPP yellow wire). No Continuity.
-Changed spark plug wires

Can someone tell me what else to check or do I have to suspect the PCM or can it still has something to do with the timing or something else?

My only two cents, you are close to the bottom (847 vs 800)....humm

After that, yes you have done all of the tests called for and the last thing is a known good PCM and recheck...

Default P1382

I have the same code P1382. I've been told "crank position sensor" and also "cylinder position sensor". Which is it? One is in the distributor and the other behind the timing chain cover.

My list gives P1382 = CYP sensor no signal
so it's in the distributor for 1999.

I think those signal wires coming from the distributor are shielded, so be careful how you probe them.
