Re: 1989 Honda Accord Ignition Wires
I'll see if I can help the firing order is 1-3-4-2.

The o's represent the cylinders and the #'s represent the # of the cylinder.
On the distributor cap the top one is for #4 cylinder the next one down is #2 cylinder The next one is #1 cylinder and the last one is #3 cylinder. Hope this has helped you out and God bless your husband and you and our troops overseas!!!!!

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.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
well yeah,,, basically it still has the same function,, ignition, start, and power,, all u have to do is just connect the correct wires in their proper place ,, any technician should be able to trace and do this for you,, but it will work,, just buy any switch once it fits it will work..
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.
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.
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 cases..plus 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.
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.
