If you are talking about just plugging into the speed sensor yes. A VTEC and NON-VTEC are one and the same.

SOURCE: car won't start when it's hot outside

My daughter's 1991 Honda Accord did the same thing. I discovered that the main relay had to be replaced. Apparently the solder used in the original main relay was poor and would actually "soften" in the heat and cause a disconnection. When the cabin temperature dropped, the solder would cool and reconnect. Anyway, replacing the main relay worked. My daughter's car has not had this problem since.

Honda Accord,why go through the step of trouble shooting it, in the distributor is the ignitor just replace it.If you want to trouble shoot it use the vehicle tach, when you crank the vehicle do you see the RPM needle moving (just a realy vibrating bit) that a sign that the Ignitor is workning and if you got no spark your problem reside in the cap or the coil or even the sparkplug wire from cap to rotor

My 1994 Honda Accord LX engine cut out while driving on highway. I have found no spark at plugs, distributor or coils. Fuses all look good. I "tested" the main relay by watching the check...

The ecm receives a signal from the crankshaft position sensor and sends timing signals to the ignition control module, whick fires the coil. The problem can be the crank sensor or the control module. The crank sensor is inside the distributor. I have pasted a test procedure below to help you troubleshoot.
See Figures 8 and 9
Remove the distributor cap, rotor and the inner cover.Disconnect the wires from the igniter.Check for voltage between the black/yellow wire and ground. Battery voltage should be present with the ignition ON . If voltage is not present, check the black/yellow wire between the ignition switch and the igniter.

Fig. Fig. 8: Terminal identification on engines without VTEC
Check for voltage between the green wire ("BLU 2" on VTEC) and ground. Battery voltage should be present with the ignition ON . If voltage is not present, check the ignition coil and the green ("BLU 2" on VTEC) wire between the ignition coil and the igniter.

Fig. Fig. 9: Terminal identification on VTEC engines
Turn the ignition switch OFF .Check the yellow/green wire between the engine control module and the igniter for continuity. Then check the BLU 1 wire between the tachometer and the igniter for continuity.If the wiring is OK and a problem still exists, the igniter is probably at fault.

91 honda accord ran out of gas now no spark

Check the ignitor, Honda uses a couple of different distributors, my 92 has the ignitor inside the distributor cap, w/ 4 wires attached (push on type). Pull off the wires (note where they all go) and remove one screw to remove ignitor (it's been a while since I changed it, there might be 2 screws, but it would be easy to see). If it's bad, you will have no spark. If this doesn't help, let me know, I'll try to help further.

1997 Honda Prelude 177K. I have done the

Unfortunately you probably need a new distributor. There are three pick-up coils mounted down inside the base of it. They go bad quite commonly. The unfortunate part is; the new distributor will come with a new cap, rotor, coil and module...which you have already bought. The distributors are not that expensive though, maybe you can sell the extra parts???

How to change ignitor on 1991 honda accord

Honda has 2 distributors, Hitachi (with an internal ignitor) and Toyo Denso (with an external mounted ignitor). The toyo denso is removed by removing 2 bolts and a harness clip on the outside of the distributor. The Hitachi requires that you remove the dist. cap, rotor, and 'reluctor', which is under the rotor, the ignitor is under that, remove the retaining screws, make sure the screws are put back in the same locations, as one is a 'diamegnetic' screw, and must be replaced in the correct location.

Where is the pick up coil on 92 honda accord and can I test it to see if it works.

You might not have one, it might be the ignitor inside of your distributor. If your distributor has only 4 plug wires coming out of it you have the internal ignitor. If you have 5 plug wires coming out of your distributor, then follow the shortest plug wire and it will lead you to your coil on the left side of the head (while standing in front of the engine).

If your car is not starting, it could also be your main relay tucked under your dash on the driver's side above your left foot while sitting. It's secured with a 10mm bolt and you must first move your cruise control computer to really see it. Sometimes they are gray and sometimes they are brown.

No spark is uasually caused by a faulty coil or the trigger unit,both are inside the distributor. Get a used distributor fron a scrap yard (about $4o) and replace yours.Remove the dis.cap and turn the engine until the rotor is pointing to fire # 1 cyclinder,and mark the exact position of the base before removing from the block." Do not turn the engine" Install the other Dist. with the base in exactly the same position and the rotor pointing exactly to # 1 cyclinder. Note. Failing to install the other dist.exactly the way you took the first one out will throw the timing out!!!!!
Be doing all of this be sure there is no spark.
