please help car turns over but will not start

Alright so I bought a 92 automatic and it started when I bought it. I gave it a tune up ( plugs, wires, cap, button.) It started after. I started to install a new radio so I cut the stock plug to splice the new plug to it ( have not hooked it up yet), It started up and later that night I wouldn't start. I changed the fuel filter, it started up I turned it off started it again turned it off and it hasn't started since. I don't know what to do I'm stuck please help me out guy what do you u think it is?

Re: please help car turns over but will not start

could be the main relay under the dash close to steering column. mine did the same thing, if i turned it over long enough the d light would flash. took relay out & resoldered the connection & no probs since. good luck.

Re: please help car turns over but will not start

first off, did you just cut all the wires at once or one at a time? you could have cause a short in the system. usually fuses help prevent this...but sometimes a faulty fuse could be melted and allow a surge in voltage through to damage lord knows what. So if thats what you did, first a slap on the wrist. Bad!! a wiring harness from walmart or best buy lets you just plug in, you never need to cut the factory harness!!

Now, have you actually checked for fuel/spark? This would be the first thing to do, then come back and let us know.

Personally, I'm thinking you fried your ignition coil, or maybe the ignition switch. Both are super cheap and very easy to replace...5 mins tops.

would this relay make a clicking sound if it was faulty? because my d4 does the same thing, blinks when it wont turn over and clicks when i turn the key if it isnt going to work

clicking sound usually ends up being the starter- (well one click every time you turn the key) multiple clicks usually means a dead battery.

I didnt notice any clicking from mine. It would be worth checking out though. Doesnt take much to do this at all.

the relay itself would click once if it's operating correctly.

I had this problem with my '92 Prelude too. It would turn over but it wouldnt start. I replaced the fuel injectors and the problem was solved. Hope this helps.

I would pull one of the spark plug wires out and see if you have spark going through it... if not then its your Dizzy or coil.

you should have resoldered the connections before ordering a new relay. it works.

flip the car back over onto it's wheels and off of the roof, you might have better luck starting it.
