Main relay on Honda should be under the dash on the drivers left side. Hope this helps.

There is no relay. test the coil circuit by turning the key on and momentarily grounding the negative terminal to see if the coil will release a spark. If yes, suspect your ignition module is bad. If no, suspect your ignition switch or wire is bad.

    blk/yellow is the positive from the ignition. Blue is the negative. both wires also go to the ignition module. If there is 12 volts on the blk/yellow wire (key in run or start), your ignition switch is working. The module should be in the distributor. When you got the new distributor, did it include all of the guts?

    it was a remanufactered distributor all was in it i had to put the 2 wires on it from the old one also when i put a test light on the blk and yellow wire from coil it lights up there is als a resistor a little blk box mounted next to the coil that blk

    OK, I think you should check the reluctor gaps in the distributor. Take the cap and rotor off and you will see a black part with 4 dogs sticking out radially. When the dogs line up with the stator pickup tabs, the gap on each side should be equal. There are 2 screws holding the stator down. If you need to center the reluctor in the stator, loosen the screws and slide the stator until the gaps are equal, then retighten.

    OK I CAN CHECK IT BUT ITS A NEW REMANUFACTURED DISTRIBUTOR FROM O'REILLYS

    Your system is mostly new, and we know you have power to the coil, so we're down to checking to see if the new parts are working right. If the stator is adjusted OK, then you should doublecheck the coil as well. disconnect the coil wires and make a jumper from the battery to the positive side. Then briefly jump the negative side to ground and see if it will release a spark.

1991 honda accord will not start, it's getting fuel and spark but will not start


Could be a weak coil or bad ignition module located in the distributor. I would replace the coil if you have not ever done so then the ignition module. The coils last about 150k miles and then can go anytime after that. I've owned four 90's Hondas and they have all had this problem. If neither of those things work then you may have a bad distributor.

Check Distributor cap and rotor for wear or cracks, pay special attention to the center point where the coil wire is, it must be clean and make good contact.

I would check the crank sensor located on the bell housing. This senses that the engine is turning and allows a spark to be produced. No sensor no spark.

check to see if you have spark when it happen,
if there is no spark then you need a new coil, ignitor or a whole distributor.

very simple system and the only thing left is the coil and power to the coil. have you check the main 65 amp fuse and then the other fuses? i would make sure there is power getting to it and if so change the coil.
