Look in your owner manuel for a radio code, should be a 5 diget code. If you try to put wrong numbers in the stereo more than three or four times the radio will lock up. If you can't find the code call the dealer with the vin# and they should be able to tell you over thier computer. Another way to find the code is hold number 1 and 6 at the same time for 10 seconds and it will bring up a code that you will have to right down, that code will get your password for your stereo when you call the Honda Dealer. If your stereo does lock up just take your battery cables off and hold the red and black one together for 30 seconds and this will reset your radio.

How to turn off check engine light for 2001 Honda Prelude. ??


if you've corrected the problem associated with the code being thrown, it can either clear itself, or, you can unhook the negative battery cable for 10 minutes, sometimes that works, if neither of those work, you can get the code cleared at a dealer on their OBD checker

How hard or expensive is it to change a speed sensor in a 1991 Honda Prelude SI?


The speedometer sensor is located on the top of the transmission. It is held on by one bolt. Remove the bolt and gently pull and turn the speedometer sensor and the whole assembly will come out of your transmission.


Park your Honda Prelude on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller.

Raise the vehicle on the side of the wheel speed sensor's location. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.

Disconnect the sensor electrical connection from the wiring harness.

Take note of the connection location for the sensor retainers, grommets and clips. You will need to know this information for the installation process.

Start at the connector end of the sensor cable and remove grommets, clips and retainers in order to free the harness.

Unscrew the sensor mounting bolt and remove the sensor from the differential housing.

Install the new speed sensor by reversing the removal process. Loosely secure the sensor and sensor harness connection in place, taking precaution to keep the harness from twisting or bending. Once in place, torque the sensor mounting bolt to 16 foot pounds (22 Nm). Tighten any bracket bolts to 84 inch pounds (10 Nm).

Lower the vehicle safely and reconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to your owner's manual to perform an ABS system check to confirm that you installed the sensor properly.

The player will not eject the cd but it will not play it either.


I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.

You may need to take it to the dealer and see if they can over ride the error. It thinks someone stole it, then after many attempts with the wrong code, it locks up.
