Question about 1996 Honda Accord

96 accord ex wont start

Ok so I installed an old clairon cd player in my car and hooked up an subwoofer and an amplifier.  Then a few days later I noticed I wasn't getting the same gas mileage on a full that that I used to.  I got a tune up about 5 months ago, new plugs, wires, air filter, and oil change.  The car ran great.  I opened the hood and saw the spark plug wire cover was not sealed like the others.  I turns out that the oil entered the area where the spark plug is and got up to the boot and ruined the cover.  So I took off the head gasket cover and replaced the gasket and the 4 valves dust gaskets and cleaned out the area where the spark plugs are to the best I could. I unscrewed the spark plugs and tightened them back up.  It took me a while but I believe I got the firing order correct.  After all that the car won't start up.  I tried to jump start it and still nothing.  It seems to want to start but it wont completely turn over.  Please HELP

Firing sequence is off or plug wires are not connected completely. check the firing order, to the plugs and make sure all connections are on (you will have to push down on top of boot pretty hard to get a good connection)

If it is turing over jump starting isn't gonig to help (you battery if fine unless you have drained all the power from it)

How to install a subwoofer and amplifier


When installing any electrical components always remember to unhook the battery. First thing you want to do is run your ground cable from a volt meter to a body or frame nut or bolt near by in the trunk or hatch area a shorter thicker ground is best then connect the other end of your volt meter to your battery cable that will need to be run through the firewall and connect to the positive battery terminal. Also VERY important make sure you have installed a fuse on the wire in between the amp and the battery. after you have connected the battery cable and ground to your meter it will light up or give you the correct reading for your ground, if not run the ground somewhere else until you have found the right spot. pull out your stereo, for stereos that are made to be compatible with an amp there will be multiple rca jacks in the back of the stereo. For a sub woofer you want to hook the rca cable to the rear or sub labeled rca jacks. Then run your amplifier remote wire to the remote wire protruding from the back of your car stereo. After that you can run the ground and battery cable to the correct slots. Now connect your sub via rca and your done. making it fit correctly is up to you. If you do not have an amp with a subwoofer out then you can take the wires from your sub and bridge the connection to your amp and get enough power, take the positive wire to your sub and hook it up to the positive terminal of channel one on the amp then take the negative wire from your sub and hook it into the negative terminal on channel two and your done.

Make sure that the Shifter is in neutral or park. If that doesn't help, check the fuse and relay indicated for you started in the fues panel.

Electrical problems with my 96 honda accord


This happens because the removal of the current to the computer or CPU gets de-programed. You may be able to solve the problem (if it comes up gain ) by disconnecting the negative cable with the engine off. Then renstalling it back after a minute.This will reprogram the computer.

I have no power to the the radio


You will have to chase your power wire back to the fuse panel and/or the battery itself. The burning smell was more then likely the main power cord burning up. Replace it and it should all work well.
