Question about 1986 Honda Prelude
I can start it at the starter by jumping it. i've replaced the clutch switch. i cann't find the relay. were is the relay?
There is no relay for the starter system on an 86 prelude only a starter solenoid. There is a 10ga wire directly from the battery to the starter solenoid which is attached to the starter motor make sure there is 12V at the starter solenoid. There is also a Bl/W wire that sends a signal to the starter solenoid when the key is turned to activate the starter. If you send voltage to the Bl/W wire the starter should engage and start the car. if not you need a new starter solenoid. If it does start make sure you check the #14 fuse it is a 10A fuse under the dash on the left hand side in the little white box with only three fuses the other two are 15A. If the fuse is good and 12V is there when you turn the switch you need to check the wire. If you do not have 12V check the 65amp metal plate fuse under the hood on the passenger side. This fuse provides 12V to the ignition switch and is the white wire going to the switch. If this fuse is good you will have to pull the ignition switch and make sure the white wire have 12V if it does then you need a new ignition switch. Otherwise the wire is broke and you need to find the break. Hope this helps.

DOES THE CAR SOUND LIKE IT WANTS TO TURN OVER AT ALL?
Why are you having to jump it? Bad battery...too weak....weak battery not supplying enough juice to the starter to turn the motor over....
