Electronics overheating

Fires up and runs fine when cold. 10-15 min later runtime it stalls then wont fire, but kinda tries to. Apparently an overheating/cooling cycle of an electronic device/component is at play here. Any ideas as to which device this could be? ECU, ignition component, etc?

Re: Electronics overheating

i have seen ignition coils do this in the past ... but without it sitting in front of me to test kinda hard to say .. id suggest getting a spark tester and once the car stalls check to see if it has spark ...

Re: Electronics overheating

element, when it won't start, spark is quite strong from the coil at about 1/2". At this time, spark from a plug wire at that distance is weaker. Haven't had the chance to check both when its cold and runs. One suggestion I got was the ignition unit inside the dist could be bad. thx

Re: Electronics overheating

The main relay is bad. If it gets really hot in the summer time where you're at, you'll find that it won't start during the hottest parts of the day.

x2

I used to have to finagle my arm under the dash to take mine out just to cool it down. It's a very annoying problem... prelude3g.com, under common problems tells you how to fix it, or you can buy a new one for more money than it should be...

Re: Electronics overheating

OK now, get this. Car sat for over 24 hrs without a start attempt. Tried it, won't fire up. Spins just fine, just won't light up. Has been having intermittent problems of this nature for the last couple months. Seems like the problem, whatever it is has finally come to a head. Between work and umpiring ballgames after work and on wknds, I don't have much time to investigate this thing. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thx, KTH

Re: Electronics overheating

PHANTOM 240, you're a complete idiot, and are likely a member of the Stern Fan Network. Thing is, douchebag, if you can't contribute anything helpful.......KEEP YOUR STUPID LOUISIANA CRAWDAD FINGERS OFF THE KEYBOARD!! You wrote.........'It's totally bad now apparently.' Jeez, that's some real helpful technical advice! ****in' wise-ass kids.

What crawled up your ass and died? As far as I'm concerned, you can go eat a d!ck. Who agreed with what I said earlier about the main relay being bad? Everyone. Eat sh!t you ungrateful f*ck. Go replace your whole pile of sh!t car for all I give a d@mn. Have fun being wrong.


I'm proud to be a "wise-ass kid". It's always better to be a smartass than a dumbass. Remember that.

Yooo, no use for this kind of behavior.. I'm pretty sure when PHANTOM240 said "It's totally bad now apparently" He was probably talking about your main relay being bad, and suggesting that you replace it.

I'd check your grounds, and maybe the distributor and battery as well (I don't know how old and the condition they're in.) Take it to Advance Auto Parts, they should help you out with that.

It would be smart to keep the offensiveness out of this forum, or you might as well be holding a sign that says

Best of luck to you, anyway.
