Starting issue

Like the title states my car is having trouble starting. Sometimes it will fire right up with no problems. Other times I have to leave the car off for a good ten minutes before it will start again. I just replaced the battery and I was told it might be the main relay? I'm not sure though. Can anyone help me?

Re: Starting issue

I had the same problem bro.. I had to let the car cool down before it started again, sumtimes it wouldnt even start durin the day cuz it was hot outside, it only started at night, lol, it was crazy

but yea anywayz, yea a battery change is good, i did that, and also i got a new starter and alternator. I also relocated my battery to the trunk, after that, never failed me again :)

Re: Starting issue

Does the prelude suffer from CTS issues like some of the GM/Vauxhalls over here?
