My prelude's christmas tree display of lights...bad news.

Well, today I threw a CEL. Along with that I have my ABS light lit-up, and my 4WS light on. So, I jumped the 2p and it reminded me of a christmas tree, but it wasn't a happy feeling.

ABS Code 1 - Basically, replacing the ABS unit more or less.

4WS Code 44 - Basically, replacing the unit as well
Code 70 - Temporary code, no big deal except the fact of the previous code.

CEL Code 43 - Fuel Supply System - So far, I've checked all the injector clips to make sure they are plugged in as well as all the other connections. Later this week I'll check fuel pump and injectors. Fuel filter is new, fpr is fine, and no fuel leaks. Car starts and idles fine. There is a jolty hesistation b/n 2500-3200 rpms when accelerating. I'm not sure what it will end up being. Anybody else have the same problem?

And to top it all off my brake master cylinder is just about gone. My pedal sinks slowly to the floor half the time, and my brakes are horrible.

Right now I am in a love-hate relationship with this car, but its 15 yrs old, what do you expect. Just figured I'd rant, and give anybody else an oppurtunity to tell us the "gifts" our preludes are giving us this christmas.

It may be 15 years old but it's still in style!.. I've got no lights, but.. I need a valve adjustment, new struts, and a new paint job once winter is over. Her poor hood is starting to get rust, and near the wheel wells. Paint is fading and has a lot of chips. She wants a new steering wheel and shift knob as well, since it's starting to look crummy @ 90k miles.. but it all comes in stride, she's a dirty slut and puts out a lot (She only gets the good lube, though, so no worries there ;] ), nothing makes me happier than WOT on the H22, possibly the sexiest sound in the world.

Re: My prelude's christmas tree display of lights...bad news.

From what I've experienced...Preludes = Bad luck. BUT... Preludes also = totally worth the hassle. Kinda weird that all that **** happened at once. Maybe check your fuses before you drop a butt-ton of money on parts. Just a suggestion bro.

Re: My prelude's christmas tree display of lights...bad news.

Well my ABS light has been on since I first got the car. same as you the whole ABS pump needs to be replaced. I even have one I bought on ebay but its too hard to replace, figured I'd do it when I get my motor swap done. Dont know if its even worth it beacuse i had to cut my rear abs sensors when i did my 5 lug swap.

Car keeps leaking oil. I've had the dealer replace all kindsa gaskets and seals and i still get burning oil smells in the interior.

I got an annoying shake in the car. I can't figure out what it is, Road forced balancing didn't fix it, the alignment didn't fix it, none of the shops working on the car has mentioned bad tires or bent rims as possible issues... Its simply annoying as hell.

got a bad wind noise comign from my driver side window due to a bad seal...

Other than that, the car starts and runs fine. Can't complain really given 16, going on 17 years old.

Check your ball joints on your front upper control arms. I had the same problem for a while and it was because those ball joints were shot.
