P1259 VTEC malfunction

Okay, so i get home one night... after ALOT of MAD VTECing. I wake up and go start my car.. and my CEL is on, today i ran it through a scanner and i get a P1259 VTEC system malfunction code...
anyone know how i can fix this? funny thing is.. my VTEC still kicks in when im driving it now... i read it could be a oil pressure problem.. but how do i check that?

might be the vtec pressure switch, or the vtec solenoid valve

reset the code and drive the car through a few cycles of vtec to see if it returns. if it does. then have the vtec pressure switch and vtec solenoid valve checked out.

ya he called me, i was already at his house when u called (we ate fajitas, lol). we were compression testing my motor and we got hungry so u know...

doug is located at highway 7 + whitmore (close to weston) in woodbridge.

harsh says to leave quick things, he seems to be getting impatient, lol
