Default Diagonostics say V-tec Oil switch? 2002 RSX type-S?

I was driving down the fwy on saturday when my acura gave a tug ultimately causing it to slow down. I popped it into neutral and was rolling. When I popped back into 6th gear the check engine went on and my RPM would not go higher than 4000( I had it modified for the v-tec to kick in that early ) What could be wrong? Is it the V-tec sylonoid? After giving the car a rest for about half an hour I test drove it. The v-tec was working fine but the check engine light was still on.What's going on?!? Diagnostics say it's the v-tec oil switch.does anyone know what this means?Is it a common minor problem?or a huge one?

if its your oil switch then when you test drove it round the vtec wouldnt of kicked in bc it needs the oil switch to engage vtec...did you scan the ECU and get a code for oil switch ?
