Question about 1998 Honda Prelude

2 Answers

All electronic accessories work when key is in

I have a 1998 Honda Prelude 2.2 Auto Base Type. All electronic accessories work when key is in ignition. When you turn key to start, the engine does not turn over. Battery is in good condition. All this happened within 30 seconds of turning off the car then turning it back on. Possible ECU problems??? Please help me figure this thing out, my head is about to explode!!!

Test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

1994 Honda Prelude si starting problems


Your starter motor is either not getting power or in need of replacement. Otherwise, there is nothing wrong with your car.

Also check your battery connections for no corrosion there as well as by the starter motor. Low voltage circuits in a car are extremely vulnerable to poor contact issues.

The transmission's electronic control module is most likely bad I had a 1989 prelude that had the same issue I had to replace the TCM on it after the S3 light came on but my problem was a problem shifting, if you have a electronic speed sensor for the trans. and not a speedometer cable the speed sensor may be bad if you have the cable type change the TCM (transmission control module)
