Question about 1993 Honda Accord
The car won't start. the engine turns but it just won't fire to start. it starts right up with a jump (the jumper cables only have to be on the battery for seconds before it starts) it runs great when it's running.
I've had the battery, alternator, and battery cables, and plugs checked and have been told they're ok.
Someone suggested the cam sensors but the check engine light is not on.
That sure sounds like a voltage drop through the battery cables. could be a drop to the fuse box causing low voltage to engine sensors. i dont see the cam sensor causing your problem if jumper cables fix it. you need a multimeter with a min/max setting connected to both ends of one of the cables while cranking. anything over a half volt from one end to the other is too much and it would need replaced. do this on both pos. and neg. cable,including cable to fuse box. check batt. voltage while cranking. these fuel injected engines are very sensitive to voltage and if its too low to certain sensors it wont start. cam sensor controlls fuel injector timing via ecm, crank sensor controlls spark. it would be more helpful to me to know weather it is spark or fuel you aren't getting while cranking. hope i helped you and not caused you more questions. keep me up to date. dustang
