Icon9 help i got a 98 lude.

hello i just got a 98 prelude and i was driving at night and the power when out on the car. I thought it was the alternator but I took it off and went to go get it checked out and it works fine, I got a new battery as well but it still shut off when I have the car running and I take of the positive cable. what do you guys think it is.

Re: help i got a 98 lude.

could be main relay or ignition switch. there is a recall for the ignition switch, just call honda and you will be able to read them your VIN number. they will tell you if it has had the recall done yet, and if they havent, it is free. could solve your issue

Re: help i got a 98 lude.

Does just the power go off or does the ignition turn off too?

Re: help i got a 98 lude.

it's either the flux capacitor or the ignition switch.

ignition switches fail on these cars sometimes. it was a recall item by honda some years back and yours may be one of the faulty ones.

now the auto tranny thing? read the auto tranny failure thread in 5th generation. that may shed some light on that

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

i spoke to the dealer and they said that the ignition switch has been changed on this car already. I will check the main relay next. Also the tranny has been replaced about 6 months ago.

Re: help i got a 98 lude.

The car should turn off when the power cable is disconnected, it browns out the computer and causes it to shut down. That's normal.

Even if it's fixed. They have to replace it again as it's a recall. It has a lifetime warranty. The only time they won't replace it if it's damaged due to thieves or an accident caused it to break.
