Did you check fuses first?
there are 4 to 6 plugs all are dead?
which 98 engine option you have? name it. or cyl count and displacement.
so you checked at the coil. actual, if true, that is no spark. at all.
USA answers ONLY !
1: connnect scan tool to DLC 16pin connect, by knees.
2: i crank for 5 seconds, 1potatoe 2 potatoe . ....5
3: i release key,. not turn off.
4: the scan tools shows, DTCS for CMP or CKP bad. Yes, then BINGO.
the car the PCM makes spark fully,. the PCM has cam and crank
signals that the PCM uses to fire the IGNITOR.
this is the first check.

if no DTC errors, the Ignition or coil is bad. or just a fuse blown.
using said $9 scan tool check Pending DTC errors too.
for CMP or CKP, po340 or p0355, etc.

this will get you on the right side of the PCM every time.
the ecu/pcm first the COIL !

ask for help checking coil or ignitor.
or read the FSM , it covers that 100%

SOURCE: 1988 honda civic 1.5 l engine turns over but will

well if this is the model i think it is you have pgm ignition. you have an ignition coil , ignitor unit, ground wires all(corrosion) left to check.
coil testing

  1. With ignition switch OFF, remove the distributor cap.
  2. Remove the two screws to disconnect the BLK/YEL front terminal A and WHT/BLU from terminal B of the coil.
  3. Using an ohmmeter, check resistance between terminals. Replace coil if resistance is not within specification.
  4. Check that the primary winding resistance between terminals A and B is 0.3-0.5 ohms.
  5. Check that the secondary winding resistance between terminals A and the coil tower is 9,440-14,160 ohms.
  6. If not within specifications, replace the coil.

unit testing
    1. Check and service any Honda engine codes before proceeding.
    2. Check the No. 32 50A fuse on 1985-91 models, or the No. 39 50A fuse on 1992-95 models in the dash fuse box before testing.
    3. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and the leak cover.
    4. Disconnect the wires from the igniter.
    5. Turn the ignition switch ON.
    6. Check for voltage between the BLK/YEL wire and ground. If there is no voltage check the BLK/YEL wire and ignition switch.
    7. Check for voltage between the WHT/BLU wire and ground. If there is no voltage check the WHT/BLU wire and the ignition coil.
    8. Check the continuity between the WHT wire and body ground. Service the wire or connectors as needed.
    9. Check for continuity between the BLU wire and body ground. If no continuity check the wire and connectors between the igniter unit and the
tachometer or the A/Trans control unit.

after these things let me know if problem persists
    1. If any tests were not passed, replace the igniter unit.

SOURCE: Replace crankshaft position sensor

Remove the left front wheel....(drivers side). Remove all accessory belts. Remove the crankshaft shaft pulley.......remove the plastic lower timing belt cover.....and there it is! It is mounted with one bolt.
The wiring runs down the right side of the timing cover while looking at it from the drivers side of the car.

No spark on the 98 honda civic ex coupe coil is good and icm is good what else could it be?


If the coil is good and giving out spark and your ICM is good the cap can have a missing button which will not allow spark to go to the spark plugs through the plug wires do replace the distributor cap and rotor and spark plug wires

Why is my honda hesistaing


simply add a can of SEAFOAM(parts store) to a 1/2 tank of Premium gas, and let it idle for 5 minutes. You've got water and corn by product in your lines from the ethanol gas. Common problem now EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). Give it a chance to work.

What order do i plug the spark plugs into the distributor on 1989 honda civic 1.5L


The plug wires are different lengths for different spark plugs. The best way to not get messed up is to do one wire at a time. Unplug old wire from distributor and plug, compare it to the new ones, find the new one that is the same length and replace. You don't want to get the wires mixed up. Hope this helped.

I have 1998 honda civic.i just wash the engine and its not starts now what i should do?


Sounds like the distributor cap got wet. Pop the cover off the cap (leave the spark plug wires in place) and spray some WD-40 on the contacts under the cap or wipe the water out of it with a rag.
