1987 Honda prelude dash lights Pgm-fi coming on


pedal pressure? the throttle sticks< OPEN?
ive never ever seen a post ever for pedal pressure,
what does that mean? im clueless here, and sounds very scary.
to any mech. after all, throttle valves failures, can be man killers.
so.....???
when failed does the engine crank over full speed with the starter?
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr fail to start.
that normal sound of a good starter, yes?

is this an intermittent problem only?

NO start, ? (cranks robustly)
no, lets start at step one.
1: check all fuses. in both fuse boxes.
2: are the Headlamps working at full brightness.
3: does all the normal dash cluster lamps glow , key on.
Charge, Brake , Check engine lamp> all glow, if not, stop.
4: spark got spark at all cylinders, (a test)
my guess is engine is flooding, (smells) and is due to
lost spark.
ever do the 60k mile tuneup this decade?


this very old car has relic, warnings, back then.
non standard.

the PGM-FI is early name for CEL, check engine
on this engine you must find the ECU (PGM-FI box)
and see the LEDs on the side.
they can be made to blink secret codes. errrors
these errors will be key to diagnosis, i bet.

here is the clue
http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-c9084_ds477362

the cars FSM book covers how to diagnose no starts
or no cranks.

Car cranks but dose not start, there is no power to distributator or fuel pump


I suspect the at this point, the main relay is defective. This relay controls power to fuel and spark circuits.

The PGM-FI Main Relay is actually comprised of two individual internal relays. When the ignition switch is initially turned ON , the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay. This ground triggers one of the PGM-FI internal relays that sends battery voltage to the fuel pump for two seconds to pressurize the fuel system.
When the engine is running the PCM supplies a continuous ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay. The supplied ground keeps the relay in the "closed" position providing electrical current to the fuel pump, keeping the fuel loop pressurized while the engine runs.
If the engine is not running with the ignition on, the PCM cuts the ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay, causing the relay to "open" and stop the electric current flow to the fuel pump. As mentioned previously, if the engine is not running, the PCM will only supply ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay for two seconds when the ignition switch is initially switched to the ON position.
The PGM-FI Main Relay also supplies electrical power to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve and to the fuel injectors.

TESTING


If the engine starts and continues to run, the PGM-FI Main Relay is working and does not need to be replaced.
  1. Locate and remove the relay.

On some models of the Civic and Civic del Sol it is located to the left of the steering column under the dash. Many later models position it either near the passenger right side kick panel under the dash or by the driver left side kick panel up under the dash.
  1. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 2 terminal.
  2. And the battery negative terminal to the No. 1 terminal.
  3. Check for continuity between terminal No. 5 and 4.
  4. If there is no continuity, replace the relay and retest

My Honda avs light comes on along with check engine light, them the engine runs rough? What does this mean?


When there is a code present in the PGM-FI system the check engine light comes on. The VSA system see's this code and stores a code for power-train system failure and turns on its light too. If the engine is running rough you should get it diagnosed ASAP. Some repair shops pull codes for free or you can get a code reader at your local parts store for the do-it-yourself-er. Find out what codes are present and I can help you more if you want to diag it yourself. lmk

Light on dash says pgm-f1, what does this mean

These three websites should help you out tremendously with your third generation Honda Accord. According to the top two forums, there is a box under your drivers seat which you will need to access from the back of the seat by folding it up and sliding it forward. There should be a small hatch on the box. Behind the hatch are some LED lights that will be blinking if the ignition is on and the PGM-F1 light is still on. This sequence of blinking is a code and you will need a book for the car to tell you what this code means, or a dealer can tell you. This will let you know why the light is on and what needs to be fixed.

I recommend becoming a member of www.3geez.com as they deal specifically with the year range of your car. If anyone knows answers to your questions, they will.

Good Luck!
