get an oil pressure guage like your tuner said and see what the oil pressure is.

It could be the oil pressure switch or the wiring for vtec.

But i would assume a lack of oil pressure would cause the "low oil" light to come on, instead of a code 22.

I would check the wiring first because that would be easier then purchasing an oil pressure gauge. But if the wiring checks out then do what lenny said
