Where can i get an igniter for my honda accord 1992 model 2.0exl


The igniter or ignition control module is located inside the distributor. Probably cheaper to just replace the entire distributor since there are more sensors in there and the are just as old as the failed igniter. The distributors on that generation Accords have a high failure rate so it's a known problem.

I have a 1991 honda accord I started it like I always do to let it warm up. It started right up like it always does. I went inside to let it warm up. I came outside and it wasn't runnung. I tried to start...


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6223989-ignition_coil_doesn_t_spark . These are generic instructions--specific instructions are pasted below from Autozone.com. If you get stuck, please get back to me.

Use a test light to check for power to the coil on the black wire with a yellow stripe--see procedure below and other tests you can run. You will need a volt-ohm meter to run most of these tests.

The system used on 1990-95 Accords and 1989-95 fuel injected Preludes uses the distributor components to signal the engine computer. The ECU triggers the spark through the igniter unit and coil. This spark timing is controlled by the computer as an integrated function of the fuel management system. The distributor contains a crankshaft angle sensor and a No. 1 Cylinder Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor. Using these and other electrical inputs, the computer controls spark timing electrically.

1990-91 ACCORD
See Figure 6

  1. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and shield.
  2. Label and disconnect the 4 wires from the igniter unit.
  3. Switch the ignition ON . Use a voltmeter to check for voltage between the black/yellow wire and ground. Battery voltage should be present. If the voltage is not present, check the black/yellow wire between the igniter and the ignition switch.
  4. Check for voltage between the white/blue wire and ground. Battery voltage should be present with the ignition ON . If voltage is not present, check the white/blue wire from the igniter to the coil and test the ignition coil.
  5. Turn the ignition OFF . Check for continuity in the yellow/green wire between the igniter and the ECU.

  1. Check the blue wire for continuity between the tachometer and the igniter.
  2. Check the resistance between the terminals which connect to the blue and white/yellow wires. It should be between 1,100-3,300 ohms. If not, the igniter must be replaced.
Coil test:
1990-91 ACCORD

See Figure 16
  1. The ignition coil is contained within the distributor. With the ignition OFF , remove the distributor cap.
  2. Remove the screws securing the black/yellow wire and white/blue wires from the terminals. The black/yellow wire is connected to the primary positive terminal and the white/blue wire is connected to the primary negative terminal.
  3. Measure resistance between the terminals. Resistance should be between 0.6-0.8 ohms.
  4. Measure the resistance between the primary positive terminal and the secondary terminal. Resistance should be 12,800-19,200 ohms.

  1. All test conditions must be met. If any test condition is not satisfied, the coil must be replaced.

My 91 honda accord is not getting fire to the spark plugs


Check you ignition coil. Pull off the single wire and hold a screwdriver tip about 1/4" away from the place it plugs into. Have someone crank the engine and look for spark from the coil to the screwdriver. Do not hold on to the metal part of the screwdriver. It may shock you if it is working.electricdime.jpg.

Looking for an igniter for a 91 accord se. there seems to be two types or different manufacturers. Do I have to go with the Hitachi or will an aftermarket brand do the same thing?????


Hi jon, an aftermarket igniter (also called 'ignition control module') should be fine. Replaced mine in my 92 accord last year, let me know it u need any further info or help in the replacement.

A spark plug "ignites" the fuel air mixture inside the engine. Follow the thick wires from your distributor cap to your engine to find your spark plugs.
