Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1996 Honda Accord Ignition Coil 2.7L V6 engine.

I have a check engine light on, and my tachometer doesn't work. Judging by what I've read, a good start is my ignition coil. So, I went to my local auto parts store to buy one, figuring I could find it on my car and replace the existing. Therein lies the problem, I can't find the blasted thing on my car. It's only three bolts and two wires so I would assume I can handle it, but only if I can actually locate where it is on my vehicle.

Follow tithe wires from the spark plugs these have to go to the inginition coil (not sure if this car has one per plug or one ber the whole motor, but the all have to go to a coil even if it is shared)

"look from top of motor, see the cylinder that is more forward
that is on FWD car forward is to right, strut.
on is most forward on all V engines. that be #1"

I wanna hook up a tachometer to my honda accord ex-r 96 model but i need a wireing manual


If you have a coil, then you hook it up to the side that goes to the ignition control unit. The other side of the coil will have power all the time.
If you don't have a coil, there has to be a special tach lead off the ignition control box.

95 honda accord V6 tachometer jumping and cutting out.


I had the same problem with my 1995 Honda Accord V6 2.7L a year ago. It was a pain to have Honda diagnose the problem because it was intermittent and every time I took my car in to the dealership they said they couldn't reproduce the problem, but the longer you wait the more frequently your tachometer will fluctuate. I finally stopped by the dealership when the tachometer was jumping and they were able to diagnose the problem. In my case there was a faulty resistor in the ignition coil, but the entire ignition coil needs to be replaced. I don't know anything about cars but I know this fixed my problem. I went directly though Honda's service center so I know they charged me more than an independent repair shop but I'm looking at my invoice now and I paid $150 for the ignition coil and $200 for labor. After Honda diagnosed the problem I searched for "1995 honda accord ignition coil tachometer" and found that other people had the same problem and replacing the ignition coil was the fix. Hope this helps.
