4WS Issue.

Got a 4ws steering issue with my 1994 Prelude.
4WS steering light comes on permanently and 4WS ceases to work.
After resetting by removing 10a fuse, 4WS works for about a day or two before deactivating shortly after starting the car.
Pulled up no code when putting the car in diagnostic mode. ie. The 4WS steering light didn't blink but stayed solid.

Thing is, i've got no idea idea where to go from here or even if I can fix this problem myself.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: 4WS Issue.

It doesnt sound like you have poulled the fault code properly. I would have another go. Under normal conditions the light stays solid untill the enginie has been started, it sounds like you havent jumped the service connector properly.

Re: 4WS Issue.

Seems like the most common problem and least expensive place to start is to resolder the relays in the 4ws computer. I was having simalar problems out of mine pulled the comp resoldered and haven't had the light come on in 3 months. 4WS has worked flawlessly. Do a search and you'll find detailed instructions on how to do it.
