Default Re: code 43 on 95 civic fuel supply

If you don't have any performance problems, check the O2 sensor.

No need for all caps.

Have you cleared the ECU to see whether the code returns?

TURN OFF THE ALL CAPS ON YOUR KEYBOARD.

The SRS light blinks an SRS code with the service connector jumped when there is an airbag circuit problem.

Now drive the car to see whether code 43 returns.

With the service connector jumped, are you saying the CEL is blinking a new code or that the SRS light is blinking?

Only with the service connector jumped, right? If you unjump the connector, does the SRS light just remain on steady.

If CEL code 43 does not return, then you are good to go.

For the SRS light, did someone remove an airbag?

How old are the plugs, wires, cap, and rotor? Have you checked the mechanical and ignition timings.
