I took an alarm off of my 1993 honda accord. how do i reconnect my starter wires back to my ignition

When you disconnected the starter interrupt relay, you have to reconnect the two large wires(black/white stripe) on the car's ignition harness, that the relay was connected to, back together. That is your car's starter wire. I'm assuming that you're the one who removed the alarm from your car and you know what wire I'm talking about.

1989 honda accord DX My radio and heater motor both quit working at the same time, I checked the fuses and even changed the wiring harness on the ignition,and neither one work,please HELP

I am currently working on the same problem, I think you will find that with the car running, if you turn the ignition off very very slowly there is a spot about half a millimeter before the engine shuts off that the heater and radio will work. but it won't stay there. let me know if this is the same problem.

My 2002 honda accord check engine light has been on for the past month. i took m y car to get the engine codes read and it said cyl 2 and 4 misfired. the car drives good but starts losing power when i go...

Did anyone check the spark plugs and wires? Make sure the Spark plugs are the correct NGK Spark plugs, nothing else. Fuel pressure is another thing that need to be verified under a load, lke the mountain you are having trouble with.

95 accord, heater stays on after i shut it off????

Sounds like the ignition switch is shorted, it may have overheated and the wires may be touching. On a Honda the electrical part of the ignition switch can be replaced without removing the mechanical part. Remove the column cover and check for burnt wires at the switch.

Car engine misses.

replace the coil with a Honda coil. never buy after-market ignition parts with Honda's always buy genuine Honda parts. not only will it work better...but its actually cheaper in some they have a much better warranty than most auto parts stores. this rule applies to Honda's and Toyota's Ignition system parts. I had similar issues with my old 1989 Honda accord. As an added measure apply "Di-Electric Grease" into all spark plug wire boots to help seal out any moisture (both plug ends and distributor ends). hope this helps.

95 honda accord V6 tachometer jumping and cutting out.

I had the same problem with my 1995 Honda Accord V6 2.7L a year ago. It was a pain to have Honda diagnose the problem because it was intermittent and every time I took my car in to the dealership they said they couldn't reproduce the problem, but the longer you wait the more frequently your tachometer will fluctuate. I finally stopped by the dealership when the tachometer was jumping and they were able to diagnose the problem. In my case there was a faulty resistor in the ignition coil, but the entire ignition coil needs to be replaced. I don't know anything about cars but I know this fixed my problem. I went directly though Honda's service center so I know they charged me more than an independent repair shop but I'm looking at my invoice now and I paid $150 for the ignition coil and $200 for labor. After Honda diagnosed the problem I searched for "1995 honda accord ignition coil tachometer" and found that other people had the same problem and replacing the ignition coil was the fix. Hope this helps.
