Question about 1998 Honda Accord
Hey i bought a used accord recently and the wiring is horrible. There was a blue wire running from a grounded wire all the way to the ignition switch. today while working on the car that wire sparked and now my car, radio, and dashlights will all not turn on. when i turn the key in the ignition I get no response. my guess would be the ignition switch, but i wanted to get some feedback here first thx.
It might be the alternator or the spark plugs but more the alternator.it will cost u like 160 at auto zone but if take the old one back u should get some money back

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.
