Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 92 Honda accord that has been sitting idle for a long time and now wont start. Ignition lights are on and engine turns over but there is no spark from the coil to the distributor. I changed the coil, no difference...except the coil gets hot. I even ran wires from coil to Battery (+) and coil(-) to earth...still nothing. Can anyone advise please.....

Do not hotwire the "-" terminal on the coil. The ignition system modulates the "-" signal to release the sparks. Check the ignition fuse under the dashboard. If good, use a test light at the coil to check for voltage at the coil. If you don't have a test light, you can buy one at a parts store for a few dollars. Connect the test light clamp to engine ground and touch the point to the "+" terminal of the coil. If no voltage, suspect the ignition switch is bad. If there is voltage at the coil, suspect the ignition module is bad. If you have more questions, please let us know.

92 Honda Accord it gets spark fuel it will crank but wont start


In my case, it turned out to be a harness from the steering column to the fusebox (inside) that they called the "pigtail". (It connects to the ignition switch; I think it actually IS the ignition switch on one end and a large connector on the other going to the fusebox, about 20" long.)

93 honda accord shuts off after reaching temp


I had the same problem with my accord years ago and it turned out to be that the ignition module would die whenever it got hot and then start working again when it cooled off. It is located inside the distributor and costs a bit less than a whole new distributor. I changed the entire distributor, to be sure all the ignition components were new and would not fail again for a while.

Timing honda accord


Locate the crankshaft pulley at the front of the engine and remove any grease or dirt to expose the timing marks. Turn off any accessories such as the radio, climate controls and lights.
  • Step 2 Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature. The cooling fan will cycle on and off signifying it has reached the correct temperature. Shut the engine off.
  • Step 3 Connect the timing light to the battery if necessary and to the number one ignition wire located at the far end of engine on the driver's side. Restart the car and allow it to idle for 2 minutes.
  • Step 4 Point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley and determine the amount of adjustment needed. Loosen the hold down bolts on the distributor and rotate it slowly until the timing mark matches the middle line on the timing light.
  • Step 5 Tighten the distributor hold down bolts and recheck the timing to ensure it didn't move. Turn the engine off and remove the timing light. Reconnect the number one ignition wire.
