    Do you know how to test an OBD1 system?

  • Ron the Don Dec 04, 2016

    Honda was one of the first companies to use it in the mid 80's its crazy basic, but it may give an inclination, your cluster could just be dead though.

    check out this video, the accord in this one was a bit newer, but you should have the same connectorhttps://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=how...
    Remember its very basic, literally your going to need a paper clip and the CEL should flash short/long blinks like morse code. Good Luck.

Replaced fuel pump on 96 cutlass supreme and still wont turn over


Fuel pump power starts at the ECM/Batt fuse in the underwood fuse block. From there it goes the the fuel pump relay and then to the fuel pump. If you pull the fuel pump relay one pin should have power all the time. This is power from the ECM/BATT fuse. Two of the pins should be grounded. The last pin is power from the ECM. it hold have power for 3-5 seconds hen the key Is turned on and anytime the engine is cranking. Find out what is going on at the relay and then we'll have a better idea of what direction to proceed. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have an 89 yj , i just replaced altenator , battery , positive cable , ground cable, put an hei distributor on it with new plugs and wires and a solenoid and my voltmeter is in the red after about 15 run...


I would think your starter is over heating (grounding) which is draining power from batt which is making alternator use its charging capabilities to the max . starter motor is what id check. this isnt a little 14 gage wire robbing all that power so quick, it is a direct connection within the batt,starting or charging system.

Battery not charging. had alt tested and it checked out. batt is brand new only a few hours old. was driving and tranny started shifting up and down, lights on gauges went out, no tail lights. connections...


check the big wire that goes to the fuse box under the hood. there is one that goes from the batery across the radiator shroud. then them. also check the ground from the engine block to the firewall its flat with no coating.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low


The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)
