On page 11-38 of the 1992-1995 USDM Honda FSM Code 48 is identified as a LAF sensor circuit problem. The first suggestion in te trouble shooting flow chart is to reset the ECU. And all the solutions in the flow chart are either (1) replace the sensor, (2) replace the ECU, or (3) find and fix an open in the circuit.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
