If you know someone with a scan tool you can use it to plug in to the vehicle's computer to check the sensor readings while starting it. I'm almost certain the problem is going to be either the camshaft position sensor or the crankshaft position sensor.

My 1990 hond accord will turn over but wont start can you please help


MAKE SURE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES IN GOOD CONDITION, REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR,CHECK FOR SPARK AT SPARK PLUGS,IF YOU DONT SEE SPARK CHECK TO SEE IF POWER GOING TO COIL IF NOT CHECK IGNITION FUSE.IF FUSE OKAY AND POWER GOING TO IGNITION COIL,COIL FAULTY OR IGNITER UNIT FAULTY. CHECK FOR FUEL PRESSURE MAKE SURE FUEL FILTER BEEN CHANGED.FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 40 PSI. IF YOU GETTING SPARK AND FUEL. YOUR IGNITION TIMING OFF OR VALVE TIMING OFF DUE TO A WORN TIMING BELT.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6223989-ignition_coil_doesn_t_spark . These are generic instructions--specific instructions are pasted below from Autozone.com. If you get stuck, please get back to me.

Use a test light to check for power to the coil on the black wire with a yellow stripe--see procedure below and other tests you can run. You will need a volt-ohm meter to run most of these tests.

The system used on 1990-95 Accords and 1989-95 fuel injected Preludes uses the distributor components to signal the engine computer. The ECU triggers the spark through the igniter unit and coil. This spark timing is controlled by the computer as an integrated function of the fuel management system. The distributor contains a crankshaft angle sensor and a No. 1 Cylinder Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor. Using these and other electrical inputs, the computer controls spark timing electrically.

1990-91 ACCORD
See Figure 6

  1. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and shield.
  2. Label and disconnect the 4 wires from the igniter unit.
  3. Switch the ignition ON . Use a voltmeter to check for voltage between the black/yellow wire and ground. Battery voltage should be present. If the voltage is not present, check the black/yellow wire between the igniter and the ignition switch.
  4. Check for voltage between the white/blue wire and ground. Battery voltage should be present with the ignition ON . If voltage is not present, check the white/blue wire from the igniter to the coil and test the ignition coil.
  5. Turn the ignition OFF . Check for continuity in the yellow/green wire between the igniter and the ECU.

  1. Check the blue wire for continuity between the tachometer and the igniter.
  2. Check the resistance between the terminals which connect to the blue and white/yellow wires. It should be between 1,100-3,300 ohms. If not, the igniter must be replaced.
Coil test:
1990-91 ACCORD

See Figure 16
  1. The ignition coil is contained within the distributor. With the ignition OFF , remove the distributor cap.
  2. Remove the screws securing the black/yellow wire and white/blue wires from the terminals. The black/yellow wire is connected to the primary positive terminal and the white/blue wire is connected to the primary negative terminal.
  3. Measure resistance between the terminals. Resistance should be between 0.6-0.8 ohms.
  4. Measure the resistance between the primary positive terminal and the secondary terminal. Resistance should be 12,800-19,200 ohms.

  1. All test conditions must be met. If any test condition is not satisfied, the coil must be replaced.

I have a 1991 Honda accord lx. When it is running or try to start it, it will take time to start. I checked the code and it is code 15. i keep hearing it could be an ignitor in the distributor etc. can...


Code 15 indicates a problem with the ignition output signal. There are a number of things it could be: the rotor, the igniter, the coil, the spark plug wires and/or their connections to the plugs. The rotor, igniter, and the coil can all be replaced. They are all, in the 1991, inside the distributor.
The basic check for ignition and battery supply to the ECU(computer) is to turn the ignition switch to on(do not start the car) to see if a battery or oil pressure light comes on, but that, in itself doesn't prove a lot (you've already said that the car starts; it just doesn't start easily).
It is time, I'm afraid to have your coil and igniter checked, or replaced.
Hope this is helpful.

1991 ford ranger 3.0 eec relay fuse keeps blowing fuel good no spark.Changed the distribitor, changed the ignition module.


I understand that there is a relay box under the hood with 3 relays. Which is which I don't know. However if you are blowing the fuse TO the ecc relay, then the relay must be bad. This relay controls the spark.

Turn the ignition on to the ON position if the check engine light goes out within 5 seconds then it is not the computer or the pfi relay if it stays on then you probably have a bad PFI relay located under the dash.or computer but most likely the relay.
