engine check light on

1436 1
last Monday morning the check engine light of my 2000 red insight @47,000 km turned on. I phoned the dealer Middle Gate Honda at Burnby, BC, Canada . After talking my car to the shop, they said my car needs an up-grade software for ECM. here is the report:-
Complaint: engine light on
Cause: checked code and found P1164 S1lean range problem check on
Honda com for information and found bulletin.
Correction: replace PCM as bulletin and swap over key codes. there are 3 keys registered in PCM
Part: 37820-PHM-345
Total Parts 0 Warranty
Total part and labour 0 Warranty
Also they found another bulletin
Part: 47105-S3Y-033ZA Lever (Parking brake) Warranty.

while awaiting for the part, the dealer have the 2005 Civic hybrid for me the drive to work for 2 days at no charge. the Civic is very soild and easy to drive but the engine is little bit noisy and the CVT transmission is smooth. of course it is more powerful than the Insight. but I like my Insight most.
