Tip of the Hat to Prelude Zone!

I'm posting this here instead of in the 4th gen. specific forum, because I hope that more people will see it here. A few months ago, I got a Prelude--a 1993, bright red, needed a little work, got it home and found out it needed a LOT of work, driving machine. I joined up with PZ to learn as much as I could when I had questions or problems, and everybody here has been really great.

My most recent expedition--just now completed--was that I bought a rectangular hazard flasher switch to replace the round one that had been sort of MacGyver'd into the '95 center console that had replaced the original. Sure enough, I plugged it in, and nothing happened, BUT... a few days before, I'd read here in these forums that there are different wiring conventions for the 4th gen switches than for the 5th gen switches. A quick bit of searching and I found the 5th gen "Chapter 23" of the service manual, compared the diagram there to what I actually had in my car, did some quick work with an unbent paper clip and a flashlight (it's almost 10pm here now...), plugged the new switch in, and... everything worked!

It's a testament to the tech savvy and Prelude-love of the people here that almost any question I have has already been answered somewhere in here, and I just wanted to say a quick "Thanks!" to everybody. To the new people who might feel frustrated by an unforseen problem: don't give up! Just keep searching PZ, ask questions, and things can work out for you.

Here's to the Prelude Zone Army!

I'm happy this site has helped you, but you should thank yourself as well. Most people aren't willing to put the time in to do the research. We provide the info but it's hard to dig through sometimes. Thanks for being a member, and setting a good example for the rest of the community.
