Question about 1991 Honda Prelude
1991 prelude just went through a cold rain, & snow storm. Now the engine will not shut down when the engine is turned off & instrument indicator lights also stay on. I've had to take battery cable off to avoid drainig battery. Could this be a relay switch issue?
Not exactly sure, but I believe is the ignition indide the distrubitor. It's out of timing.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
