You can have great spark, but, if the ICM is not firing at the right time, the engine won't start. The ICM's job is to precisely control spark, under the direction of the ECM. When the ICM is failing, it doesn't fire at the right time or it doesn't fire at all. In your case, it's an issue of timing.

If the ICM and coil are good, but the engine still doesn't start, the problem frequently involves the distributor housing, where one or more internal sensors (CKP, CYP, or TDC) have failed. For Hondas, I only recommend Honda genuine housings.

If the CEL comes on and goes off after two seconds, when the ignition switch is turned to ON (Position II), focus only on the distributor if the engine doesn't start. That test says the main relay, fuses, ignition switch, and ECM are fine.

In my case, it turned out to be a harness from the steering column to the fusebox (inside) that they called the "pigtail". (It connects to the ignition switch; I think it actually IS the ignition switch on one end and a large connector on the other going to the fusebox, about 20" long.)

    PS- THis can be tested with a jig that most Honda mechanics have, also called a "pigtail".which is the switch part, attached to a connector (basicly a replacement pigtail, which can be operated with a screwdriver after plugging it in at the connector on the upper left kickpanel.

    Careful--there are two versions of this item that mount differently in the steering column

SOURCE: 92 honda accord intermittent crank but no start/ tranny issues

I know that early 90's Honda's had problems and in fact a recall on the distributor. Might want to replace the distributor. Inside of the distributor is a part called the igniter which is the ignition module and that is what normally goes out. I cannot remember if you have to replace the whole distributor to get the igniter or if you can just replace the igniter itself. Has been a few years since I have worked on one. hope this helps but if not please contact me. I'm not sure about the drive light flashing thing though, new one on me.

How would a ignition output signal stop my 1995 honda accord from starting?


The motor turning over & cranking---- is one in the same

You have a :
NO CRANK or a NO START !!!

You checked fuel pressure at the motor
You checked for spark or injector pulse
The battery is good-you tested it

Now tell use about the loss of ignition output

Where is all that coming from--in detail

Have to crank sensor scoped

Is the ignition switch worn out ?

92 honda accord is firing but won't start


Hi there:
You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing... Spark / Fuel / Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

91 honda accord wont crank


There is a sensor under the left hand side of the dash that would not allow it to start, provided that you have replaced the electronic spark module inside the distributor first, which is what it sounds like it would be, When you say you replaced the distributor I assume you replaced it complete!

92 honda accord ex wagon wont start


If you are sure you are getting fuel, this could be a problem with the ignition coil or ignitor. Sometimes when they start to go you get an intermittent problem like this, These parts aren't too expensive and they shouldn't be too difficult for you to replace. You can also check if rotating the distributor to adjust the timing makes any difference.

Car wont start


U need to check for spark 1st. Pull a plug (or use a good spare plug) place plug where u can see it, have someone crank the engine, watch for spark at plug tip, do this out of the bright sunlight so u can see the spark easily. If good spark, after several starting attempts, pull a plug and check for fuel on plug. Check these 2 items 1st, let me know what u find.
