What should I do or check if my engine light is on and it's giving me a P1298 code which is electrical load detector circuit high input on a 1998 Honda Civic EX?

I have a 97 Honda and the same problem. I just started investigating myself. I was advised to look for a short in a wire harness just behind the intake manifold where the wires rub on a bracket. Usually there are three other codes in conjunction with the P1298 such as O2 sensors 1 and 2 and speed sensor. I guess this is common in older model Hondas. good luck
