Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1998 honda accord when it turn my key nothing turns on.

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.

Only thing it could have been in the first place is the wire from the switch to the starter is disconnected from the starter. Even a new switch won't fix that. Just get under the car and plug the wire back onto the spade connector.

Sounds like possibly a shorted or sulfated battery to me. I would replace it, especially if it is four years old or mor. Also check all of your battery connections and cables to verify that they are clean and tight (BOTH ends of the cables).

My 7897 has no blue wire for the remote turn on lead, all I can find is the power antenna? What wire do I hook to the remote turn on to the amp?


You can hook it directly to the radio fuse. Find where your fuse is and put the wire directly beneath it and push the fuse in. Now turn on the car and your amp has power. Hope this helps.

Im not sure what kind of knowledge or tools you have you may want to try using basic trouble shooting skills and use a meter basic meter bought at any automotive store troubleshoot with meter in dc12volt rainge begin from fusebox area were you have voltage and work your way up the line until you do not have voltage basic troubleshooting.also there is what they refer to as a fusible link wich is embeded in the wiring .

MY 98 honda accord ac fuse keeps blowing. What's making it blow the fuse?


hey there,
it may simply be a bad body / loom earth or a chafed wire making contact with the bodyork. You never know, maybe its as simple as an underpowered fuse being used mistakenly. You`ll need to trace the wires directly or by using wiring diagrams for your vehicle.

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.

Fig. Fig. 6: Terminal identification on 1990-91 Accords

  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.

Remote starter


The wire under the hood is for the hood pin switch, this wire when grounded will prevent the remote starter from starting, for trouble shooting I would leave this unhooked and make sure it is not touching any metal, also try to remote start your car with the key in the ignition swich if it remote starts you have a transponder issue if not post me and we can go from there

TROUBLE CODE RETRIEVAL UNIT


For a 1992 Accord, it is a blue connector with two wires in it, located behind the plastic kick panel on the right side. Use a wire to short those two wires in the blue connector. Then turn the key switch ON but DO NOT start. Then observe the check engine light. It will flash the code(s).
