yo make sure da battery got power. if da battery aint got no power dat car wont crank. you be push startin it n da car run ok after dat so i think it be da battery or starter motor.

Make sure your connections at your battery are good
Nice an tight an loose ground will cause this.

Re: 1996 prelude trouble starting plz help

I would check the starter and the ground from the engine to the chassis of the car, maybe even from the battery to the chassis.

Oh, and please learn to spell. I understand you're new, I'm new, but you weren't born yesterday.

Correction:

"As the title says I have a 1996 Prelude 2.2 VTEC, I only bought her recently and I have problems already. When I put the key in the ignition and turn on, I get all the lights as usual but when I turn the key to crank the engine I lose all lights and power in the car like something is tripping out. I was thinking I might have a loose earth, maybe a short in the starter or main relay. Oh, and sometimes when I turn the key I just get dim lights for a few seconds then they flash up to full strength again. The car starts grand with a push and drives great. Any help would be appreciated, thanks."

Re: 1996 prelude trouble starting plz help

I provided advice. Therefore, I helped. It looks better when you can spell properly, adds some credibility to a forum member.

You should get your altanator tested and see if its good, also your distributor may be having difficulties.
