    Did you also replace the rotor? When you say "power unit" do you mean the igniter?

Could be your crank sensor or the distributor. Do you have a check engine light if not chang the distributor.

1990 honda wont start or crank, the lights dont come on, head or inside the car


The distributor in the hondas has a function of also engaging the coil to create spark. No spark = no fire. Perhaps take a plug out, leave the lead on, hold it with INSULATED pliers against a solid metal part of the engine and get someone to crank the engine over.

If the plug sparks - coil and firing switch OK. If no spark, check coil first - remove main + feed lead from coil terminals and check on a meter for power with key on but NO motor cranking. No power = faulty distributor/firing switch.No other ideas sorry!

If it won't turn over you may want to check Battery cables for tightness and/or corrosion Starter solenoid Neutral or clutch safety switch

Unfortunately you probably need a new distributor. There are three pick-up coils mounted down inside the base of it. They go bad quite commonly. The unfortunate part is; the new distributor will come with a new cap, rotor, coil and module...which you have already bought. The distributors are not that expensive though, maybe you can sell the extra parts???

1985 honda prelude will not start


Sounds like a bad starter or teeth missing of the flexplate or flywheel. Is it a stickshift? Can you push start it?
