Car wont start

First off hello everyone and welcome to my lovely disaster. So I have a 1995 prelude se with a jdm h22a manual. The engine and tranny have 60k and the car itself has 189k. So I have replaced the following parts. New distributor cap and rotor. New spark plugs and plug wires, New ignition wire, New ignition coil, New timing and serpentine belt, all new timing tensioners and replaced auto tensioner with a manual tensioner. It has an afc neo tuner with an ecu from pfi performance. No knock, advanced timing. So I redid my timing and car fired right up. I drove it about 2 weeks and my mom drove it to my new place when I moved. She said she hit a bump and it shut off, and hasn't started since. Also since this happened, my afc is dark like it has no power, abs and cel are on. The car has fuel but no spark. It will crank and crank and crank but will not fire. Sounds good while cranking. I am lost at what this might be. I have been tracing wires and checking fuses but nothing I do does anything. Also when I jump the diagnostic port, it will not flash my cel. It stays on solid. Please help. I bought this car like 7 months ago and have had nothing but problems. Has anyone had this happen and how did you fix it? Please all feedback is appreciated.

Re: Car wont start

first of all welcome to 4th gen ownership lol. I think a solid CEL means ECU, can someone confirm that?

Re: Car wont start

Ok well I unplugged about every connector in the car and plugged them back together. Now my afc is on, and I got the code. The. Code was code 22. I found that it was the vtec pressure sensor or oil pressure switch. I also found that the jdm does not have the oil pressure switch. I have the jdm. And also will either of these keep my car from starting if they are faulty?

Re: Car wont start

In a word, no. Neither will prevent your car from starting.

Sounds like something became unfastened when your mom hit the bump. Check all grounds.
Logic dictates it's a wire issue.
No spark you say? Don't know where to tell you to start. No spark where? Plugs? As in you checked the dizzy and icm to see if they send spark to the plugs? Coil?...
Again, check wiring...would'nt be a waste of time checking all your fuses too.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
