Need help with strange problem

I have a 1991 prelude with the b21a1engine. I had a code15. Changes ignitor,coil and dizzy, still wouldn't run.I pulled the coil wire had my son turn the car over and it started and ran as long as I held the coil wire over the cap as soon as I start to plug the wire in the cap it dies. Any suggestions?

Re: Need help with strange problem

That is a strange one. Unfortunately you have already wasted a lot of money throwing parts at it and praying for a fix.

First, what was happening when the car died? Driving, stopping, idling, any precursor symptoms, ect. When you changed the dizzy, did it come with a new cap and rotor, or did you reuse the old ones? Is the small black ground wire running from the dizzy to the coil plugged in and intact? If you unplug one or two spark plug wires, does this change anything? try a few different combinations. Do you have different results if you unplug them at the cap vs. the plug? What kind of spark plugs are you using?
