I am sad....



Still not sure whats wrong with it... all the electric in the car works with or without the key being the ignition... you turn the key and nothing happens... no clicking, no turning of the motor nothing... its got to be something to do with the alarm that was half ass installed years ago and has since been removed or a bad ignition switch.

Car hasn't moved in months due to bad head gasket and messed up transmission syncros... the first time I decide to take it out for a quick run to autozone this happens.

sighs...

When did you get a paint job man? Looks great, but really sorry to hear you can't get her to run.

Re: I am sad....

Dam our cars are like curse i swear , i havent had that bad luck but i seen ,what is hapening to the prelude , i guess we need to aware they are dying breed .Back to the topic of shuting down, besides what was already disscused don't forget to check the distributor internals because it has the crank sensor,and the cam sensor inside ,also check your transistor box on the driverside of the strut tower it conects to the distributor via a wire harness,check ecu could also be bad.Need to see if has any codes. Keep updating for more info.Okay ,hope this help out.

Hello everyone,

I am a newbie on here and have a severe situation with my Honda Prelude 1991 Si ALB that I just purchases with 99,500 miles. While driving on 294 south bound toward chicago at 80mph the car literally just stopped accelerating and I pulled over right away. My gut feeling was the either the timing belt or another belt busted but that wasn't the case I found out later on. The car wouldn't start no matter what and once I towed the car home and had it in my garage I took the valve cover off to see what is going on.

1) Timing belt/all belts were on tight and no signs of damage
2) I started the car to make sure the cams would rotate and they did so no bent valve so the engine is good
3) I have seen on these forums a couple of common problems like: MAIN RELAY SWITCH,FUEL PUMP, COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR, & THROTTLE BODY BUILD UP.
4) Major problem I found was the idiot that had it before couldn't f*ck do **** mechanically because I can't remove the rotor since he busted the screw that goes into it so how can I remove the rotor in the distributor cap?

NEED HELP BAD

Can anyone tell me please what the heck is the problem probably? I do have the service manual from the Honda dealership so I hope that will help in this situation.

Thanks everyone
I'm going to kick your ass if you post this is one more thread. Stop trying to hijack threads, you have your own, stick to it.....

****ing ****er with ****ing **** stuck up your ****ing ***..... ****er

Okay Guys... Here I am months later needing help again. I dont know if anyone's got any experience with this stuff so I'll try to keep it brief while explaining everything I've tried so far.

I tested the ignition switch and its got continuity everyhwere it should, so I've ruled that out as the potential issue.

I checked the clutch interlock switch... the terminals on the switch have continuity.

I checked the 50A fuse under the hood and its good. So is the 7.5A fuse in the kick panel.

I dont *think* the main relay is the issue because in my last prelude, it had gone bad and it would at least crank the motor but not turn over.

I put a jumper wire between the battery and the starter, and it started to crank so I ruled out the starter.

Thats what I think I've ruled out.

Now here is where my lack of experience is leaving me.

I touched my multimeter on the WIRE on the under hood fuse box, to the wire that's going into the starter... I thought this would help me to make sure that that wire isn't broken some place and its getting connection to the starter... It DID have continuity so I'm going to use that information to assume that the issue in my circuit here has to be somewhere between the ignition to under hood fuse box.

So if the ignition switch is good, the clutch switch is good, all fuses are good... i presume the main relay is good... the only thing I'm left with possibly an issue with the Starter Cut Relay.

I'm going to test it tomorrow correctly when i can test it on the car's battery... I'm not an expert on multimeters, just watched a buncha youtube videos and trying to make sense on how to use it, but with my multimeter i can test the coil power and coil ground for continuity and its not a good solid continuity... theres no beep from my multimeter. and it reads '0.64' whatever that means... not the "0" that it does when i touch the probes together. Is that normal, or okay? or is this a good indicator of what my issue could be?

The alarm that the car once had, I removed completely. It wasn't hooked up by the previous owner any longer and it was a basic alarm, I dont think its got an immobilizer or anything, looks like it was only hooked up to the doors and lights... I removed it and made sure the best i could that no wires were cut (they looked like they were all t-tapped)

So I dunno guys... the only thing I can think of now is this relay, but ont really know until I test it tomorrow.

I know i could test the distributor etc... but remember my problem is that NOTHING happens but the dash lighting up when I turn that key... the starter doesn't react at all... its not like its trying to turn over or anything... its as if you were to try to start the car without the clutch pressed in... everything lights up, turn the key NOTHING happens.

Any one got any suggestions for me? Sorry for such a long post, but I figured it was best to explain everything I did so as to not waste any one's time suggesting things that I may have already looked at.

Re: I am sad....

Well I got it started fellas, I'm not exactly sure where the problem is yet though... I tested the clutch switch and it seemed to be fine, I did this by checking for continuity on the switch.

I tested the starter cut off relay and it seemed to be fine... I did this by putting 12v to the A and B prongs, and when doing so there was continuity through C and D.

I said screw it may as well try bypassing that whole circuit and used a jumper wire to bypass the relay... connecting 'C and D' ports in the fuse box and it fired right up!!!!

So I'm not sure if my issue could have been in the wiring between the clutch switch and starter cut off relay or if I tested the switch or starter cut off relay incorrectly.

But its starting at least...
